Jesus Calling - Sarah Young

INTRODUCTION

Jesus calls us to trust Him at all times. Trust Him in all circumstances. Trust Him with all our heart.

Scripture says, Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding (Proverbs 3:5 ESV). The Bible is the only perfect Word of God—without errors. I work hard to keep my devotional writings consistent with the unchanging truths of God’s Word.

I have written from the perspective of Jesus speaking, to help readers feel more personally connected with Him. So the first person singular (I, Me, My, Mine) always refers to Jesus; you refers to you, the reader. I’ve included Scripture references after each reading. Words from the Scriptures (some paraphrased, some quoted) are indicated in italics.

The devotions in this book are meant to help you trust Jesus more and more. When you’re tired, when things are going wrong, and even on your best days, whisper these four short words: I trust You, Jesus. When you do this, you release things into His control. This is a great way to stay close to Him and grow in your faith.

DON’T WORSHIP YOUR WORRIES

Worship your worries? That sounds crazy, doesn’t it? But whatever you think about the most becomes your god, your idol, the thing you worship. When your worries take on a life of their own and take over your thoughts, you are worshiping your worries.

I want you to break free from your worries. How? By trusting Me. By thinking about Me. By worshiping only Me. No one else knows what goes on inside your mind—not your friends, not your teachers, not even your parents. But I know your every thought, so be careful concerning what you choose to think about. I am constantly searching your thoughts for a sign of your trust in Me. When I find that your thoughts are about Me, I rejoice! Choose to think about Me more and more; this will keep you close to Me.

1 CORINTHIANS 13:11


He is SAFE because he TRUSTS the Lord.

—PSALM 112:7 (ICB)


A NEW YOU

I came to earth, was crucified, and then rose from the grave so that I could create a new you. A you who isn’t stuck in a boring routine, who doesn’t worry what others think, who isn’t afraid to try new things.

I want you to have an exciting life, full of adventure and challenge. I have lots of plans for you; I want you to do great things for My kingdom. First, though, you have to give Me control of your old life. Let Me have your old worries, your old struggles, your old temptations and sins. I will throw them all away so that I can work in your
