Our Daily Elder Devotional
We claim no originality for these devotions. One of our elders searches various sources and finds a daily devotion. Consider this a gift from Clinton Avenue Reformed Church: www.clintonave.org.
Today’s devotional comes from “Jesus Calling – Enjoying Peace in His Presence” by Sarah Young.
Come To Jesus For Peace
Psalm 118:24Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)
24 This is the day Adonai (the LORD, i.e. Jehovah) has made,
a day for us to rejoice and be glad.
Philippians 4:19New International Version (NIV)
19 And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4:6-7New International Version (NIV)
6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Come to Me with a thankful heart so that you can enjoy My Presence. This is the day that I have made. I want you to rejoice today, refusing to worry about tomorrow. Search for all that I have prepared for you, anticipating abundant blessings and accepting difficulties as they come. I can weave miracles into the most mundane day if you keep your focus on Me.
Come to Me with all your needs, knowing that My glorious riches are a more-than-adequate supply. Stay in continual communication with Me so that you can live above your circumstances even while you are in the midst of them. Present your requests to Me with thanksgiving, and My peace, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your heart and mind.
