Relax…He’s Got You

I like to read and share devotionals from the book Jesus Calling, by Sarah Young. The devotionals are rooted in scripture and presented in the perspective of Jesus speaking to you. This message encourages us to trust God without pushing so hard for the results to happen on our timetable. The key here: Relax. He’s got you. He’s got this. 


TRUST ME ENOUGH to let things happen without striving to predict or control them. Relax, and refresh yourself in the Light of My everlasting Love. My Love-Light never dims, yet you are often unaware of My radiant Presence. When you project yourself into the future, rehearsing what you will do or say, you are seeking to be self-sufficient: to be adequate without My help. This is a subtle sin—so common that it usually slips by unnoticed.

The alternative is to live fully in the present, depending upon Me each moment. Rather than fearing your inadequacy, rejoice in My abundant supply. Train your mind to seek My help continually, even when you feel competent to handle something by yourself. Don’t divide your life into things you can do by yourself and things that require My help. Instead, learn to rely on Me in every situation. This discipline will enable you to enjoy life more and to face each day confidently.

Accompanying Scriptures: Psalm 37:3-6, 3-“Trust in the LORD and do good; dwell in the land enjoy safe pasture. 4- Delight yourself in the LORD and He will give you the desires of your heart. 5- Commit your way to the LORD; trust in Him and He will do this:  6- He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn, the justice of your cause like the noonday sun.  Philippians 4:19, “And my God will meet all your needs according to His glorious riches in Christ Jesus.” (New International Version)
