Do not fear your weakness, for it is the stage on which My Power and Glory perform most brilliantly. As you persevere along the path I have prepared for you, depending on My strength to sustain you, expect to see miracles--and you will. Miracles are not always visible to the naked eye, but those who live by faith can see them clearly. Living by faith, rather than sight, enables you to see My Glory." -Sarah Young
Funny how we often feel so out of control--then we realize--"Oh! We aren't in control! God is." Honestly, that is the most comforting realization I can think of. If I was in charge of my future I would be making decision based on what I could see in front of me--the one dimensional world that I am restricted to seeing--not based on what would happen 10, 20, 30 or more years from now. As we all enter a New Year, let us pray that we will be satisfied to say to God "Thy will be done" in whatever comes our way.
If you aren't familiar with Jesus Calling, take a moment to check out my post from January of 2009. January is a great time to start with a new devotional!
