Jesus Calling – August 30th

Jesus Calling for Kids – August 30th
The God Who Forgives

There is no place where you cannot find Me.

There is no problem that can keep Me away from you.

You cannot run away from Me, and you cannot chase Me away from you.

I am the God who forgives. When you mess up, I am there to pick you up, dust you off, forgive you, and cover you with My Love.

I did not come to earth to judge you and condemn you. I came to make you free. Yes, I see your mistakes and your sins and rebellion. But I also see My precious child – forgiven and shining with My righteousness. You are My delight, and I sing over you with Love.

So she called the name of the Lord Who spoke to her, You are a God of seeing, for she said, Have I [not] even here [in the wilderness] looked upon Him Who sees me [and lived]? Or have I here also seen [the future purposes or designs of] Him Who sees me? Therefore the well was called Beer-lahai-roi [A well to the Living One Who sees me].
—Genesis 16:13–14 amp

Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there. If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast.
—Psalm 139:7–10

“The Lord your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.”
—Zephaniah 3:17 

Jesus Calling – August 30th

There is no place so desolate that you cannot find Me there. When Hagar fled from her mistress, Sarah, into the wilderness, she thought she was utterly alone and forsaken. But Hagar encountered Me in that desolate place. There she addressed Me as the Living One who sees me. Through that encounter with My Presence, she gained courage to return to her mistress.

No set of circumstances could ever isolate you from My loving Presence. Not only do I see you always; I see you as a redeemed saint, gloriously radiant in My righteousness. That is why I take great delight in you and rejoice over you with singing!


These devotions give me such hope, not only hope for me, but hope for our world. I know first-hand the truths found in these words. I know that He will never leave or forsake me. When I was at my lowest point, I did not have to wait to feel His Presence until He was done dealing with someone else’s issue. I did not have to stand in a line until my number was called for Jesus to rescue me from the pit.

I only had to cry out to Him…one word, “Jesus!”

I will never forget how He answered my call, “YOU ARE NOT ALONE! I AM RIGHT HERE!”

He knew that my mind was screaming, “I am all alone. I am all alone. I am all alone.”

He knew what my heart needed to hear and He spoke from His heart to mine.

I found Him when I looked for Him. The people in this world will find Him when they open the eyes of their hearts and seek Him from the center of their being. That’s where He is found…in our center. He keeps us balanced, so it only makes sense that He is our center. Let’s help each other to remain centered on Him.

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.
