Jesus Calling: April 23rdKeep your eyes on Me, not only for direction but also for empowerment. I never lead you to do something without equipping you for the task. That is why it's so important to seek My will in everything you do. There are many burned out Christians who think more is always better, who deem it unspiritual to say no.
In order to know My will, you must spend time with Me--enjoying My Presence. This is not an onerous task but a delightful privilege. I will show you the path of Life; in My Presence is fullness of Joy; at My right hand are pleasures forevermore.
RECOMMENDED BIBLE VERSES:
Psalm 141:8 NLT
8 I look to you for help, O Sovereign LORD. You are my refuge; don’t let them kill me.
Psalm 16:11 (NLT)
11 You will show me the way of life,
granting me the joy of your presence
and the pleasures of living with you forever.
Additional insight regarding Psalm 16: 8-11: This psalm (16:10 - "For you will not leave my soul among the dead or allow your holy one to rot in the grave.") is often called the messianic psalm because it is quoted in the New Testament as referring to the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Both Peter and Paul quoted from this psalm when speaking of Christ's bodily resurrection (see Acts 2:25-28, 31; 13:35-37).
