Jesus Calling with short Andy prayer 10/1 forward…

October 13

Take time to be still in My Presence. The more hassled you feel, the more you need this sacred space of communion with Me. Breathe slowly and deeply. Relax in My holy Presence while My Face shines upon you. This is how you receive My Peace, which I always proffer to you.

Imagine the pain I feel when My children tie themselves up ingift of Peace. I died a criminal’s death to secure this blessing for you. Receive it gratefully; hide it in your heart. My Peace is an inner treasure, growing within you as you trust in Me. Therefore, circumstances cannot touch it. Be still, enjoying Peace in My Presence.

“Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”                 —Psalm 46:10

“The Lord make his face shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace.” —Numbers 6:25–26

Dear God, thank You for your holy presence given to me that I may calmly meditate on Your word knowing I am loved and receive your peace that passes all understanding as You died for me and all sinners to pay the price our sins if we believe and confess our sins unto You oh Lord, who knows our every thought and still loves us, bless us renew us and keep a right spirit within us, in Jesus name, amen.

Beware of seeing yourself through other people’s eyes. There are several dangers to this paractice. First of all, it is nearly impossible to discern what others actually think of you. Moreover, their views of you are variable: subject to each viewer’s spiritual, emotional, and physical condition. The major problem with letting others define you is that it borders on idolatry. Your concern to please others dampens your desire to please Me, your Creator.

It is much more real to see yourself through My eyes. My gaze upon you is steady and sure, untainted by sin. Through My eyes you can see yourself as one who is deeply, eternally loved. Rest in My loving gaze, and you will receive deep Peace. Respond to My loving Presence by worshiping Me in spirit and in truth.

And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.                      —Hebrews 11:6

“Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth.”        —John 4:23–24

Dear God, thank You for seeing me untainted by sin, help me stay focused on You Lord and Your will for me so that I desire to please You in every way possible to the best of my ability, and when I may slip up, bring me back to You Lord  Jesus that we may be cleansed in your righteousness as You have atoned for our sins if only we have faith and believe in You Your grace shall set us free, in Jesus name, amen.

I am the culmination of all your hopes and desires. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last: who is and was and is to come. Before you knew Me, you expressed your longing for Me in hurtful ways. You were ever so vulnerable to the evil around you in the world. But now My Presence safely shields you, enfolding you in My loving arms. I have lifted you out of darkness into My marvelous Light.

Though I have brought many pleasures into your life, not one of them is essential. Receive My blessings with open hands. Enjoy My good gifts, but do not cling to them. Turn your attention to the Giver of all good things, and rest in the knowledge that you are complete in Me. The one thing you absolutely need is the one thing you can never lose: My Presence with you.

Find rest, O my soul, in God alone; my hope comes from him. He alone is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will not be shaken. My salvation and my honor depend on God; he is my mighty rock, my refuge. Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge.                             —Psalm 62:5–8

“I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty.”  —Revelation 1:8

But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.  —1 Peter 2:9 nkjv

Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.  —James 1:17

Dear God, thank You for being my rock and my salvation by lifting me out of darkness into Your light in Your loving arms You shield me and keep me safe, the one thing I cannot lose is your presence with me the giver of all good things, in Jesus name, amen.

Trust Me enough to let things happen without striving to predict or control them. Relax, and refresh yourself in the Light of My everlasting Love. My Love-Light never dims, yet you are often unaware of My radiant Presence. When you project yourself into the future, rehearsing what you will do or say, you are seeking to be self-sufficient: to be adequate without My help. This is a subtle sin—so common that it usually slips by unnoticed.

The alternative is to live fully in the present, depending on Me each moment. Rather than fearing your inadequacy, rejoice in My abundant supply. Train your mind to seek My help continually, even when you feel competent to handle something by yourself. Don’t divide your life into things you can do by yourself and things that require My help. Instead, learn to rely on Me in every situation. This discipline will enable you to enjoy life more and to face each day confidently.

Trust in the Lord and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture. Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him and he will do this: He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn, the justice of your cause like the noonday sun.                 —Psalm 37:3–6

And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.  —Philippians 4:19

Dear God, thank You for Your love and guidance in all things, teach me to rely on Your will and Your way for me trusting in You and accepting Your will for me in all things, knowing You are there for me in Jesus name, amen.

You have been on a long, uphill journey, and your energy is almost spent. Though you have faltered at times, you have not let go of My hand. I am pleased with your desire to stay close to Me. There is one thing, however, that displeases Me: your tendency to complain. You may talk to Me as much as you like about the difficulty of the path we are following. I understand better than anyone else the stresses and strains that have afflicted you. You can ventilate safely to Me, because talking with Me tempers your thoughts and helps you see things from My perspective.

Complaining to others is another matter altogether. It opens the door to deadly sins such as self-pity and rage. Whenever you are tempted to grumble, come to Me and talk it out. As you open up to Me, I will put My thoughts in your mind and My song in your heart.

“I will refresh the weary and satisfy the faint.” —Jeremiah 31:25

Do everything without complaining or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe.             —Philippians 2:14–15

Dear God, thank You for sending those to me to assist me in many ways while also protecting my son during what have been tough times for him while helping me to work with those in my life sent by You to bless me and keep me close to You, please continue to call my sons and all those in my life to You and Your Son through the power of  the Holy Spirit, in Jesus name, amen.

I love you with an everlasting Love. The human mind cannot comprehend My constancy. Your emotions flicker and falter in the face of varying circumstances, and you tend to project your fickle feelings onto Me. Thus, you do not benefit fully from My unfailing Love.

You need to look beyond the flux of circumstances and discover Me gazing lovingly back at you. This awareness of My Presence strengthens you, as you receive and respond to My Love. I am the same yesterday, today, and forever! Let My Love flow into you continually. Your need for Me is as constant as the outflow of My Love to you.

The Lord appeared to us in the past, saying: “I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with loving-kindness.”                         —Jeremiah 31:3

“In your unfailing love you will lead the people you have redeemed. In your strength you will guide them to your holy dwelling.”                         —Exodus 15:13

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.                        —Hebrews 13:8

Dear God, thank You for Your unfailing love, the love in Your eyes, described by my mother in a dream shortly after my younger sister was hit by a car and taken from this world gave her peace and serenity along with the bright smile of my little sister looking back to my mother as Jesus was looking down at her, mom just kept talking about the love in his eyes, dear Lord may I continue to receive Your Love and Your grace as you look down on me with Your loving gaze that I too may be strengthen and renewed according to Your will for me, in Jesus name, amen.

In order to hear My voice, you must release all your worries into My care. Entrust to Me everything that concerns you. This clears the way for you to seek My Face unhindered. Let Me free you from fear that is hiding deep inside you. Sit quietly in My Presence, allowing My Light to soak into you and drive out any darkness lodged within you.

Accept each day just as it comes to you, remembering that I am sovereign over your life. Rejoice in this day that I have made, trusting that I am abundantly present in it. Instead of regretting or resenting the way things are, thank Me in all circumstances. Trust Me and don’t be fearful; thank Me and rest in My sovereignty.

Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. —1 Peter 5:6–7

This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.           —Psalm 118:24

Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. —1 Thessalonians 5:18

Dear God, thank You for another day filled with Your joy, peace and love releasing all my worries untoYou  letting Your light shine on me that I may give You thanks and all glory as I struggle to understand Your will for me, help me to walk in faith accepting Your will for me and trusting in You as You are with me every step of the way, thank you Lord Jesus, amen.

Be willing to follow wherever I lead. Follow Me wholeheartedly, with glad anticipation quickening your pace. Though you don’t know what lies ahead, I know; and that is enough! Some of My richest blessings are just around the bend: out of sight, but nonetheless very real. To receive these gifts, you must walk by faith—not by sight. This doesn’t mean closing your eyes to what is all around you. It means subordinating the visible world to the invisible Shepherd of your soul.

Sometimes I lead you up a high mountain with only My hand to support you. The higher you climb, the more spectacular the view becomes; also, the more keenly you sense your separation from the world with all its problems. This frees you to experience0 exuberantly the joyous reality of My Presence. Give yourself fully to these Glory-moments, awash in dazzling Light. I will eventually lead you down the mountain, back into community with others. Let My Light continue to shine within you as you walk among people again.

We live by faith, not by sight.            —2 Corinthians 5:7

Splendor and majesty are before him; strength and glory are in his sanctuary.  —Psalm 96:6

When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” —John 8:12

For with you is the fountain of life; in your light we see light.                  —Psalm 36:9

Dear God, thank You, may I follow you wholeheartedly, as I walk by faith knowing you are here for me and willing to support me. Thank you Lord the time is near as we are told yet no one knows the hour of your return, yet ALL eyes will see you coming down from heaven to judge the living and the dead, you are the way the truth and the light, no one comes to the Father except through You Lord Jesus, be with us and keep us focused on Your will, in Jesus name, amen.

Remember that joy is not dependent on your circumstances. Some of the world’s most miserable people are those whose circumstances seem the most enviable. People who reach the top of the ladder career-wise are often surprised to find emptiness awaiting them. True Joy is a by-product of living in My Presence. Therefore you can experience it in palaces, in prisons…anywhere.

Do not judge a day as devoid of Joy just because it contains difficulties. Instead, concentrate on staying in communication with Me. Many of the problems that clamor for your attention will resolve themselves. Other matters you must deal with, but I will help you with them. If you make problem-solving secondary to the goal of living close to Me, you can find Joy even in your most difficult days.

Though the fig tree does not bud and there are no grapes on the vines, though the olive crop fails and the fields produce no food, though there are no sheep in the pen and no cattle in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will be joyful in God my Savior. The Sovereign Lord is my strength; he makes my feet like the feet of a deer, he enables me to go on the heights. —Habakkuk 3:17–19

Splendor and majesty are before him; strength and joy in his dwelling place. —1 Chronicles 16:27

Dear God, thank You for Your guidance so that we may joyfully deal with any problems we may be experiencing and place our trust inYou oh Lord and be able to see our way past any obstacles before us and focus on You Lord Jesusas You   provide brothers and sisters in Christ to help one another or provide miracles for us in Jesus name, amen.

I am the Creator of heaven and earth: Lord of all that is and all that will ever be. Although I am unimaginably vast, I choose to dwell within you, permeating you with My Presence. Only in the spirit realm could Someone so infinitely great live within someone so very small. Be awed by the Power and the Glory of My Spirit within you!

Though the Holy Spirit is infinite, He deigns to be your Helper. He is always ready to offer assistance; all you need to do is ask.When the path before you looks easy and straightforward, you may be tempted to go it alone instead of relying on Me. This is when you are in the greatest danger of stumbling. Ask My Spirit to help you as you go each step of the way. Never neglect this glorious Source of strength within you.

“And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever—the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you.”                                 —John 14:16–17 nkjv

“But I tell you the truth: It is for your good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Counselor will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you.” —John 16:7

So he said to me, “This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says the Lord Almighty.”     —Zechariah 4:6

Dear God, thank You for sending down the Holy Spirit as our counselor that we may continue to walk in your ways with the help of the Holy Spirit that we are not alone but rather led to Your higher calling as You desire for we cannot make it on our own as when we do we find ourselves lost and confused as we are not God but rather here to lean on You accepting Your will and focus on You  as You have designed us to live one day at a time in serenity and peace that passes all understanding, in Jesus name, amen.

When many things seem to be going wrong, trust Me. When your life feels increasingly out of control, thank Me. These are supernatural responses, and they can lift you above your circumstances. If you do what comes naturally in the face of difficulties, you may fall prey to negativism. Even a few complaints can set you on a path that is a downward spiral, by darkening your perspective and mind-set. With this attitude controlling you, complaints flow more and more readily from your mouth. Each one moves you steadily down the slippery spiral. The lower you go, the faster you slide; but it is still possible to apply brakes. Cry out to Me in My Name! Affirm your trust in Me, regardless of how you feel. Thank Me for everything, though this seems unnatural—even irrational. Gradually you will begin to ascend, recovering your lost ground.

When you are back on ground level, you can face your circumstances from a humble perspective. If you choose supernatural responses this time—trusting and thanking Me—you will experience My unfathomable Peace.

But I trust in your unfailing love; my heart rejoices in your salvation. —Psalm 13:5

Always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.                      —Ephesians 5:20

Dear God, thank You again for bringing this realization to me prior to this mornings reading then reaffirming such through Your grace knowing true peace and undeniable love, in Jesus name, amen.

Never take for granted My intimate nearness. Marvel at the wonder of My continual Presence with you. Even the most ardent human lover cannot be with you always. Nor can another person know the intimacies of your heart, mind, and spirit. I know everything about you—even to the number of hairs on your head. You don’t need to work at revealing yourself to Me.

Many people spend a lifetime or a small fortune searching for someone who understands them. Yet I am freely available to all who call upon My Name, who open their hearts to receive Me as Savior. This simple act of faith is the beginning of a lifelong love story. I, the Lover of your soul, understand you perfectly and love you eternally.

“Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.”  —Luke 12:7

Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God. —John 1:12

“Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”                        —Romans 10:13

Dear God, thank You for this day and for being so near and yer far from perfect, by accepting You, in my broken state, You make me whole and new forgiven in Your grace! Help me continue to live, love and learn as our church uses for its mission statement! Thank you for allowing me and all who believe and call on Your name to become Your children, in Jesus name, amen.

Worship Me only. I am King of kings and Lord of lords, dwelling in unapproachable Light. I am taking care of you! I am not only committed to caring for you, but I am also absolutely capable of doing so. Rest in Me, My weary one, for this is a form of worship.

Though self-flagellation has gone out of style, many of My children drive themselves like racehorses. They whip themselves into action, ignoring how exhausted they are. They forget that I am sovereign and that My ways are higher than theirs. Underneath their driven service, they may secretly resent Me as a harsh taskmaster. Their worship of Me is lukewarm, because I am no longer their First Love.

My invitation never changes: Come to Me, all you who are weary, and I will give you rest. Worship Me by resting peacefully in My Presence.

Which God will bring about in his own time—God, the blessed and only Ruler, the King of kings and Lord of lords, who alone is immortal and who lives in unapproachable light, whom no one has seen or can see. To him be honor and might forever. Amen. -1 Timothy 6:15–16

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord. “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.” —Isaiah 55:8–9

“Yet I hold this against you: You have forsaken your first love.”         —Revelation 2:4

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”  —Matthew 11:28

Dear God, thank You for Taking care of me and showing me Your love in so many ways that I cannot deny You and Your presence as You care for me showing me Your ways are higher than mine. If I believe in You, all will be well, in Jesus name, amen.
