This was my daily devotional from Sarah Young and her book Jesus calling -- this is perfect for Day #35
Dear Beloved, I am leading you along the high road but there are descents as well as ascents. In the distance you see snow-covered peaks glistening in brilliant sunlight. Your longing to reach those peaks is good, but you must not take shortcuts. Your assignment is to follow Me, allowing Me to direct your path. Let the heights beckon you onward but stay close to Me. Learn to trust Me when things go 'wrong'. disruptions to your routine highlight your dependence on Me. Trusting acceptance of trails brings blessings that far outweigh them all. I have lovingly planned every inch of that way. Trust does not falter when the path becomes rocky and steep. Breath deep draughts of My Presence, and hold tightly to My hand. Together we can make it. - Jesus
I prayed yesterday for many. But last night....the Enemy REALLY tried to get into my brain and jump start past hurts and I wanted to revert back to old habits....but I didn't. I really trusted. I read this devotional yesterday and thought - hugh....I did not know what would transpire last night...but as I reflect this am...I know I trusted and you know what....my fear...my worry -- was NOTHING...and HE rewarded me BIG time... with only 'stuff' that we could of known....Jesus and I ...us...
Thank you Lord.
You prompted me to post early today...this was yesterday's reflection but it was needed.
I am listening to you.
This is to bless someone, I pray it was exactly what my Secret Sister needed.
