Enjoy this month’s podcast round-up, and we invite you to read today’s devotion as if Jesus is speaking to you directly.

Draw near to me with a thankful heart, aware that your cup is overflowing with blessings. Gratitude enables you to perceive Me more clearly and to rejoice in our Love-relationship. Nothing can separate you from My loving Presence! That is the basis of your security.

Whenever you start to feel anxious, remind yourself that your security rests in Me alone, and I am totally trustworthy.

You will never be in control of your life circumstances, but you can relax and trust in My control. Instead of striving for a predictable, safe lifestyle, seek to know Me in greater depth and breadth. I long to make your life a glorious adventure, but you must stop clinging to old ways. I am always doing something new within My beloved ones. Be on the lookout for all that I have prepared for you.

For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. — Romans 8:38-39

When I am afraid, I will trust in you. In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust; I will not be afraid. What can mortal man do to me? — Psalm 56:3-4

See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland.— Isaiah 43:19

Your Turn

It’s so easy to long for an easy, comfortable, unsurprising life. Bumps in the road and challenges can cause us to feel insecure and unsure. But, when we give up our attempts to control and trust that the Lord has everything in hand, we’re able to rejoice no matter what comes our way. Come share your thoughts with us on our blog. We want to hear from you! ~ Devotionals Daily
