Jesus Calling

THE FUTURE IS ONE OF THOSE SECRET THINGS beyond your domain. Release it to Me, the rightful Owner. Refuse to worry about the future, and you will find your resources for today quite sufficient. Remember that I am part of those resources and nothing is impossible with Me!

The secret things belong to the LORD our God, but the things revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may follow all the words of this law.

[DEUTERONOMY 29:29]

“For nothing is impossible with God.”

GENUINE WORSHIP requires that you know Me as I truly am. You cannot comprehend Me perfectly or completely, but you can strive to know Me accurately as I am revealed in the Bible. By deepening your understanding of Me, you are transformed and I am glorified—in beautiful worship.

Give unto the LORD the glory due to His name; worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness.

[PSALM 29:2 NKJV]

Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.

[1 CORINTHIANS 13:12]

Also read: ISAIAH 6:3 NKJV

Before You Turn Out the Light:

How does your world reflect My Glory? Consider this, and worship Me in the beauty of My holiness.

Jesus Calling

THE CHOICE TO BE BOLD rests on your confidence that I am with you and for you. Remember that I am a God of surprises: I am not limited by the way things are or by the paltry possibilities you can see. With Me all things are possible!

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.

[JOSHUA 1: 9]

Jesus looked at them and said to them, “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”

[MATTHEW 19:26 NKJV]

Also read: LAMENTATIONS 3:25–26 NKJV

Before You Turn Out the Light…

I will increase your strength and your courage when you look to Me. Refuse to grow discouraged.

Jesus Calling

I AM THE GOD OF ALL TIME and all that is. Seek Me not only in morning quietness but consistently throughout the day. Do not let unexpected problems distract you from My Presence. Instead, talk with Me about everything, and watch confidently to see what I will do.

Adversity need not interrupt your communion with Me. When things go “wrong,” you tend to react as if you’re being punished. Instead of this negative response, try to view difficulties as blessings in disguise. Make Me your Refuge by pouring out your heart to Me, trusting in Me at all times.

[PSALM 105:3 NKJV; PSALM 55:17; PSALM 32:6; PSALM 62:8]

Jesus Calling

WEAR MY ROBE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS with ease. I custom-made it for you, to cover you from head to toe. The price I paid for this covering was astronomical—My own blood. You could never purchase such a royal garment, no matter how hard you worked. Sometimes you forget that My righteousness is a gift, and you feel ill at ease in your regal robe. I weep when I see you squirming under the velvety fabric, as if it were made of scratchy sackcloth.

I want you to trust Me enough to realize your privileged position in My kingdom. Relax in the luxuriant folds of your magnificent robe. Keep your eyes on Me as you practice walking in this garment of salvation. When your behavior is unfitting for one in My kingdom, do not try to throw off your royal robe. Instead, throw off the unrighteous behavior. Then you will be able to feel at ease in this glorious garment, enjoying the gift I fashioned for you before the foundation of the world.

[ISAIAH 61:10; 2 CORINTHIANS 5:21; EPHESIANS 4:22–24]

Jesus Calling

WHEN THINGS SEEM to be going all wrong, stop and affirm your trust in Me. Calmly bring these matters to Me, and leave them in My capable hands. Then, simply do the next thing. Stay in touch with Me through thankful, trusting prayers, resting in My sovereign control. Rejoice in Me—exult in the God of your salvation! As you trust in Me, I make your feet like the feet of a deer. I enable you to walk and make progress upon your high places of trouble, suffering, or responsibility.

[JOB 13:15 NKJV; PSALM 18:33; HABAKKUK 3:17–19 AMP]

Jesus Calling

JOYFULLY RECEIVE THE FORGIVENESS I bought for you with My own blood. As you walk in the Light with Me, there is a continual cleansing work going on within you. This purifying work of My blood helps you stay close to Me and to others who walk in My Light.

If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

[1 JOHN 1: 9 NKJV]

If we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.

[1 JOHN 1:7 Also read: ISAIAH 61:10; PSALM 89:15–16]

Before You Turn Out the Light

Once you have confessed your sins to Me, receive My forgiveness without fear.
