Devotional: “Jesus Calling” 1.13.11

Still loving this devotional book, “Jesus Calling” by Sarah Young. Every day it brings up one of those right-between-the-eyes sort of thoughts. God is using this book to make a huge impact on my life. Here is the devotional for today.

“Try to view each day as an adventure, carefully planned out by your Guide. Instead of staring into the day that is ahead of you, attempting to program it according to your will, be attentive to Me and to all I have prepared for you. Thank Me for this day of life, recognizing that it is a precious, unrepeatable gift. Trust that I am with you each moment, whether you sense My Presence or not. A thankful, trusting attitude helps you to see events in your life from My perspective.

A life lived close to Me will never be dull or predictable. Expect each day to contain surprises! Resist your tendency to search for the easiest route through the day. Be willing to follow wherever I lead. No matter how steep or treacherous the path before you, the safest place to be is by My side.”

The LORD has done it this very day; let us rejoice today and be glad. (Psalm 118:24, NIV)

To this you were called, because Christ suffered for you, leaving you an example, that you should follow in his steps. (1 Peter 2:21, NIV)
