In this morning’s Castimonia meeting I read the daily devotional “Jesus Calling” by Sarah Young.
TRUST ME with every fiber of your being! What I can accomplish in and through you is proportional to how much you depend on Me. One aspect of this is the degree to which you trust Me in a crisis or major decision. Some people fail miserably here, while others are at their best in tough times. Another aspect is even more telling: the constancy of your trust in Me. People who rely on Me in the midst of adversity may forget about Me when life is flowing smoothly. Difficult times can jolt you into awareness of your need for Me, whereas smooth sailing can lull you into the stupor of self-sufficiency.
I care as much about your tiny trust-steps through daily life as about your dramatic leaps of faith. You may think that no one notices, but the One who is always beside you sees everything – and rejoices. Consistently trusting in Me is vital to flourishing in My Presence.
Psalm 40:4 – Blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, who does not look to the proud, to those who turn aside to false gods.
Psalm 56:3-4 – When I am afraid, I put my trust in you. 4 In God, whose word I praise — in God I trust and am not afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?
Psalm 62:8 – Trust in him at all times, you people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge.
Isaiah 26:3-4 – You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you. 4 Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord, the Lord himself, is the Rock eternal.
