Jesus Calling, January 4

    Today God had another great reminder for me through the Jesus Calling devotional by Sarah Young.  Maybe it will encourage you, too.

January 4

        I WANT YOU TO LEARN A NEW HABIT. Try saying, "I trust You, Jesus" in response to whatever happens to you.  If there is time, think about who I AM in all My Power and Glory; ponder also the depth and breadth of My Love for you.
       This simple practice will help you see Me in every situation, acknowledging My sovereign control over the universe.  When you view events from this perspective--through the Light of My universal Presence--fear loses its grip on you.  Adverse circumstances become growth opportunities when you affirm your trust in Me no matter what.  You receive blessings gratefully, realizing they flow directly from My hand of grace.  Your continual assertion of trusting Me will strengthen our relationship and keep you close to Me.

        Scriptures included in the meditation:  Psalm 63:2; Isaiah 40:10-11; Psalm 139:7-10
