Jesus Calling: August 28th, 2024

Jesus Calling: August 28th

Grow strong in the Light of My Presence. As My Face shines upon you, you receive nutrients that enhance your growth in grace. I designed you to commune with Me face-to-Face, and this interaction strengthens your soul. Such communion provides a tiny glimpse of what awaits you in heaven, where all barriers between you and My Glory will be removed. This meditative time with Me blesses you doubly: you experience My Presence here and now, and you are refreshed by the hope of heaven, where you will know Me in ecstatic joy.


Psalm 4:6-8 (NLT)
6 Many people say, “Who will show us better times?”
    Let your face smile on us, Lord.
7 You have given me greater joy
    than those who have abundant harvests of grain and new wine.
8 In peace I will lie down and sleep,
    for you alone, O Lord, will keep me safe.

Additional insight regarding Psalm 4:7: Two kinds of joy are contrasted here - (1) inward joy that comes from knowing and trusting God and (2) happiness that comes as a result of pleasant circumstances. Inward joy is steady as long as we trust God; happiness is unpredictable. Inward joy defeats discouragement; happiness covers it up. Inward joy is lasting; happiness is temporary.

Revelation 21:23 (NLT)
23 And the city has no need of sun or moon, for the glory of God illuminates the city, and the Lamb is its light.
