Jesus Calling - April 15th, 2022

Jesus Calling - April 15th

Trust Me, and don’t be afraid. Many things feel out of control. Your routines are not running smoothly. You tend to feel more secure when your life is predictable. Let Me lead you to the rock that is higher than you and your circumstances. Take refuge in the shelter of My wings, where you are absolutely secure.

When you are shaken out of your comfortable routines, grip My hand tightly and look for growth opportunities. Instead of bemoaning the loss of your comfort, accept the challenge of something new. I lead you on from glory to glory, making you fit for My kingdom. Say yes to the ways I work in your life. Trust Me, and don’t be afraid.


RECOMMENDED BIBLE VERSES:
Isaiah 12:2 (NLV)
2 See, God saves me. I will trust and not be afraid. For the Lord God is my strength and song. And He has become the One Who saves me.”

Additional insight regarding Isaiah 12:1-16: Isaiah offers his personal hymn of praise - another vivid description of the joy the people will have when Jesus Christ comes to reign over the earth. These verses will preview what will take place as described in Isaiah 44-66. Even now we need to express our gratitude to God, thanking him, praising him, and telling others about him. From hearts filled with gratitude come deeply felt praise and the desire to share the Good News with others.

Psalm 61:2-4 (NLV)
2 I call to You from the end of the earth when my heart is weak. Lead me to the rock that is higher than I. 3 For You have been a safe place for me, a tower of strength where I am safe from those who fight against me. 4 Let me live in Your tent forever. Let me be safe under the covering of Your wings.

Additional insight regarding Psalm 61:1-2: David must have been far from home when he wrote this psalm. Fortunately, God is not limited to any geographic location. Even when we are among unfamiliar people and surroundings, God never abandons us. A towering rock would be a place of refuge and safety. God's all-surpassing strength is always with us.

2nd Corinthians 3:18 (NLV)
18 All of us, with no covering on our faces, show the shining-greatness of the Lord as in a mirror. All the time we are being changed to look like Him, with more and more of His shining-greatness. This change is from the Lord Who is the Spirit.

Additional insight regarding 2nd Corinthians 3:18: The Holy Spirit's way of transformation works better and lasts longer than even Moses' glorious experience. With the freedom the Holy Spirit gives, our false beliefs and misconceptions fall away. We can clearly see what God wants and better reflect it to others. The Spirit works progressively in us to point out where we need to change. Step-by-step, he gives us insights on how to do it and empowers us with his love. Some change happens quickly, but God works in his own timing. The process may be slow in some areas, so never give up if you don't see the spiritual progress you desire. God will work it out (Philippians 1:6).
