Today's writing by Sarah Young in her devotions for every day on the year "Jesus Calling", writing as if Jesus were speaking directly to us:
"Lie down in green pastures of Peace.
Learn to unwind whenever possible,
resting in the Presence of your Shepherd.
This electronic age keeps My children 'wired' much of the time,
too tense to find Me in the midst of their moments.
I built into your very being the need for rest.
How twisted the world has become when people feel guilty about meeting this basic need!
How much time and energy they waste by being always on the go
rather than taking time to seek My direction for their lives.
"I have called you to walk with Me down paths of Peace.
I want you to blaze a trail for others who desire to live in My peaceful Presence.
I have chosen you less for your strengths then for your weaknesses,
which amplify your need for Me.
Depend on Me more and more,
and I will shower Peace on all your paths."
Young then lists three supporting Bible verses: Genesis 2:2 - 3; Luke 1:79; and Psalm 23:1 - 3 NIV (listed below):
"The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
he refreshes my soul.
He guides me along the right paths
for his name’s sake."
