One Good Thing Every Day: February 5, 2013

These precious insights bolstered me today. May the same be true for you!

From A Jane Austen Devotional

“Make the test of your heart-decisions be whether God approves, regardless of what others might say.”

Galatians 1:10 NIV

Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ.

From Henry Blackaby’s Experiencing God

“God is not our servant to make adjustments to our plans. We are His servants, and we adjust our lives to what He is about to do. If we will not submit, God will let us follow our own devices. In following them, however, we will never experience what God is waiting and wanting to do on our behalf or through us for others.”

From Sarah Young’s Jesus Calling: Enjoying Peace in His Presence

“Do not wear yourself out with analyzing and planning. Instead, let thankfulness and trust be your guides through this day; they will keep you close to Me.”

“You can have as much of Me and My Peace as you want, through thousands of correct choices every day. The most persistent choice you face is whether to trust Me or to worry. You will never run out of things to worry about, but you can choose to trust Me no matter what.”

Numbers 6:24-26

“The Lord bless you
    and keep you;
the Lord make his face shine on you
    and be gracious to you;
the Lord turn his face toward you
    and give you peace.”
