Jesus Calling - March 7th, 2025

Jesus Calling: March 7th

    Let Me help you through this day. The challenges you face are far too great for you to handle alone. You are keenly aware of your helplessness in the scheme of events you face. This awareness opens up a choice: to doggedly go it alone or to walk with Me in humble steps of dependence. Actually, this choice is continually before you, but difficulties highlight the decision-making process. So, consider it all joy whenever you are enveloped in various trials. These are gifts from Me, reminding you to rely on Me alone.


Psalm 63:7-8 (NLT)
7 Because you are my helper,
    I sing for joy in the shadow of your wings.
8 I cling to you;
    your strong right-hand holds me securely.

James 1:2-3 (NLT)
Faith and Endurance
2 Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles of any kind come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy. 3 For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow.

Additional insight regarding James 1:2-3: James doesn't say if trouble comes your way but when it does. He assumes that we will have troubles and that it is possible to profit from them with increased endurance. The point is not to pretend to be happy when we face pain but to have a positive outlook ("consider it an opportunity for great joy") because of what troubles can produce in our life. James tells us to turn our hardships into times of learning. Tough times can teach us perseverance.

Additional insight regarding James 1:2-4: We can't really know the depth of our character until we see how we react under pressure. It is easy to be kind to others when everything is going well, but can we still be kind when others are treating us unfairly? God wants to make us mature and complete, not to keep us from all pain. Instead of complaining about our struggles, we should see them as opportunities for growth. Thank God for promising to be with you in rough times. Ask him to help you solve your problems or give you the strength to endure them. Then be patient. God will not leave you alone with your problems; he will stay close and help you grow.


  1. (03.07.24) Lord, thank you for Your Love for us. It is wonderful and comforting to know you are always with us and your strength will be there in our weakness. I never thought I would be thankful for problems and trials. With you I can be at peace in all circumstances. Thank you Father that because of you we are victorious.

  2. The word of God has promise that God is always with. I’m in a position where I can only trust him. I know he is working for my favor

  3. It would be nice to read it on my app. Doesn’t work most of the time. Are you trying to get more $?
