jesus calling.

Saturday, August 31, 2013

i sat down on the couch a couple of hours after my last post, and opened my Jesus Calling book to today's date. i am so floored by the timeliness of my reading for today that i have to share it.

Grow strong in your weakness. Some of My children I've gifted with abundant strength and stamina. Others, like you, have received the humble gift of frailty. Your fragility is not a punishment, nor does it indicate lack of faith. On the contrary, weak ones like you must live by faith, depending on Me to get you through the day. I am developing your ability to trust Me, to lean on Me, rather than on your understanding. Your natural preference is to plan out your day, knowing what will happen when. My preference is for you to depend on Me continually, trusting Me to guide you and strengthen you as needed. This is how you grow strong in your weakness.

{James 4:13-15; Proverbs 3:5 (AMP); Isaiah 40:28-31}
