Jesus Calling: January 30
Worship Me only. Whatever occupies your mind the most becomes your god. Worries, if indulged, develop into idols. Anxiety gains a life of its own, parasitically infesting your mind. Break free from this bondage by affirming your trust in Me and refreshing yourself in My Presence. What goes on in your mind is invisible, undetectable to other people. But I read your thoughts continually, searching for evidence of trust in Me. I rejoice when your mind turns toward Me. Guard your thoughts diligently; good thought choices will keep you close to Me.
Psalm 112:7 NLT
7 They do not fear bad news;
they confidently trust the Lord to care for them.
1st Corinthians 13:11
11 When I was a child, I spoke and thought and reasoned as a child. But when I grew up, I put away childish things.
