Weaknesses, Problems, & Anxiety: A Devotion

This is the devotion I was talking about from Jesus Calling yesterday that was so powerful to me. It was SO good, I just had to share….

Come to Me with all of your weaknesses: physical, emotional, and spiritual. Rest in the comfort of My Presence, remembering that nothing is impossible with Me.

Pry your mind away from your problems so you can focus your attention on Me. Recall that I am able to do immeasurably more than all you can ask or imagine. Instead of trying to direct Me to do this and that, seek to attune yourself to what I am already doing.

When anxiety attempts to wedge it’s way into your thoughts, remind yourself that I am your Shepard. The bottom line is that I am taking care of you, therefore you needn’t be afraid of anything. Rather than trying to maintain control over your life, abandon yourself to My will. Though this may feel frightening, even dangerous, the safest place to be is in My will.

Luke 1:37, Ephesians 3:20-21, Psalm 23:1-4
