Jesus Calling devotional Bible by Sarah Young

Jesus Calling

This is such a wonderful devotional by Sarah Young. She takes a verse, and she put’s it into a form of Jesus talking to you. Which is so peaceful to me at times. I have the Jesus Calling devotional, and there is a devotional Bible, which I really love. Sometimes when you’re suffering and you don’t know what to do anymore, sometimes just hearing something personal like this is just what you need!

I have looked in my Bible for a devotion by her, and I thought the following was a good reminder.

Come to Me just as you are. Let Me enfold you in My compassionate embrace. I know the depth and breadth of your weariness. I see you from the inside out, as well as from the outside in. Nothing about you escapes My attention—or My tender concern. I offer you rest, My child, but in order to receive it you must stop for a time and simply wait with Me. When you are physically tired, your mind easily succumbs to anxious thoughts. Then, although your body needs rest, the anxiety drives you harder than ever. This is hurtful and counterproductive.

Discipline yourself to stop whatever you are doing, and take time to fix your thoughts on Me. I provide rest not only for your mind and body but also for your soul. However, your body and soul cannot rest until your mind settles down. Take quiet, slow breaths while you focus your attention on Me. It can be helpful to say a simple prayer such as: “Jesus, fill me with Your Peace.” Since My Peace surpasses all understanding, your mind will eventually relax in My Presence. You can unburden yourself by making your requests known to Me. This transfers your burdens to My strong shoulders. Remember to bring Me your requests with thanksgiving, for I delight in responding to thankful prayers.

Moreover, your grateful attitude will bless you immeasurably—opening wide your heart to receive more and more of Me.

Matthew 11:28 Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.

One of the things that stuck out to me the most is the prayer she mentioned: “Jesus fill me with your peace.”  Jesus has said right here in His Word to come to Him when life gets hard and tough. Have you been doing that? I know for me that’s been a challenge. Some days are better than others. We tend to get lost in our heads and forget that Jesus is calling us to come to Him. I also like how the first paragraph reminds us that our anxiety drives us harder than simply not going to Him. It’s just part of being human. We need to get better at training our minds to look to the Lord for everything, including our thoughts.

Jesus is calling you and me to turn to Him in every situation. How will we respond?

If you ever need prayer or someone to talk to you can reach me here.

Have a blessed day as you turn to Jesus in everything you do!

  1. My friend wrote this. I think I need to invest in this Bible myself. I am learning some things about the Bible I do my devotions from that are questionable. If you follow my Bible chapter by chapter I use Joyce Meyer’s Battlefield of the Mind. I love Joyce Meyers as she and I have similar histories. But, I need to remember to stay true to God’s word too.

Would love to hear your thoughts!
