Jesus Calling June 11th

“TRUST ME and don’t be afraid, for I am your Strength and Song. Do not let fear dissipate your energy. Instead, invest your energy in trusting Me and singing My Song. The battle for control of your mind is fierce, and years of worry have made you vulnerable to the enemy. Therefore, you need to be vigilant in guarding your thoughts. Do not despise this weakness in yourself, since I am using it to draw you closer to Me. Your constant need for Me creates an intimacy that is well worth all the effort. You are not alone in this struggle for your mind. My Spirit living within you is ever ready to help in this striving. Ask Him to control your mind; He will bless you with Life and Peace.”

Isaiah 12:2 – “Surely God is my salvation; I will trust and not be afraid. The Lord, the Lord himself, is my strength and my defense; he has become my salvation.”

Romans 8:6 – The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace.

Jesus Calling For Kids
June 11th
Never Alone

“There is a battle being fought for the control of your mind. The devil is using every weapon he can think of to win. He’ll distract you – with fun, with busyness, and with noise. He’ll plaque you with fears, worries, and guilt over past mistakes. He’ll do whatever it takes to keep your thoughts centered on yourself and away from Me.

But you are not alone in this battle. I am on your side, and I will fight with you. Your job is to call on My Spirit for help. Ask My Spirit to take control of your mind and keep your thoughts focused on Me. Then I will strengthen you so that you can withstand the devil’s attacks. And I will fill your mind with Peace.”

Many Strands has three groups who are working on-line using a book as a guide for what they are learning. One of the groups is this one…as you all know we are using “Jesus Calling” as our manual for learning. What is amazing me right now, though, about the devotion for today is the fact it can relate back to the other two study groups, as well. The one scripture referenced is speaking to a mind governed by the Spirit as one that brings us life and peace, which totally relates directly to “The Power of a Woman’s Words” study. We are learning how to hold our thoughts captive, so that we can put a rein on our tongue.

The other verse referenced in this devotion has our word, “trust” in it and it is no stretch to see how this would apply to the new study, “Trusting God.” There is indeed a battle being fought for control of our mind and we need to study His word and memorize His word and learn how to apply His word to our everyday life. We need to write His word on our hearts and be able to pull it out as a weapon to fight our own flesh AND to fight the darkness that is invading this world.

I don’t know about you all, but I feel this is direct confirmation from God that all three of these groups are working under His guidance and direction. May we all continue to follow His lead and direction for each of our lives and may we always give Him the honor and glory for all that we do.

Oaks Of Righteousness

Isaiah 61:1-3 "The spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has annointed me; He has sent me to bring good news to the oppressed, to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and release to the prisoners; to proclaim the year of the Lords's favor, and the day of vengeance of our God; and to comfort all who mourn; to provide for those who mourn in Zion -- to give them a garland instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the mantle of praise instead of a faint spirit. They will be called Oaks of Righteousness, the planting of the Lord, to display His glory.
