Last week I read a Jesus Calling that I wanted to share. I’ve read it before. But this time I read it differently. There’s a lot of bad things happening in the world. Through this devotion I heard – There is trouble in this world but I’m still in control.
And here it is for you to read:
I am involved in each moment of your life. I have carefully mapped out every inch of your journey through this day, even though much of it may feel haphazard. Because the world is in a fallen condition, things always seem to be unraveling around the edges. Expect to find trouble in this day. At the same time, trust that My way is perfect, even in the midst of such messy imperfection.
Stay conscious of Me as you go through this day, remembering that I never leave your side. Let the Holy Spirit guide you step by step, protecting you from unnecessary trials and equipping you to get through whatever must be endured. As you trudge through the sludge of this fallen world, keep your mind in heavenly places with Me. Thus the Light of My Presence shines on you, giving you Peace and Joy that circumstances cannot touch.
As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the Lord is flawless. He is a shield for all who take refuge in him.
“For I am the Lord, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you.”
