Jesus Calling with short Andy prayer…

You can live as close to Me as you choose. I set up no barriers between us; neither do I tear down barriers that you erect.

People tend to think their circumstances determine the quality of their lives. So they pour their energy into trying to control those situations. They feel happy when things are going well, and sad or frustrated when things don’t turn out as they’d hoped. They rarely question this correlation between their circumstances and feelings. Yet it is possible to be content in any and every situation.

Put more energy into trusting Me and enjoying My Presence. Don’t let your well-being depend on your circumstances. Instead, connect your joy to My precious promises:

I am with you and will watch over you wherever you go. I will meet all your needs according to My glorious riches. Nothing in all creation will be able to separate you from My Love.

“I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation. —Philippians 4:12”

“I am with you and will watch over you wherever you go, and I will bring you back to this land.”             —Genesis 28:15

And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus.                           —Philippians 4:19

For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.          —Romans 8:38–39

Dear God, thank You for watching over me and meeting all my needs and providing Your love for me allowing me to live as close to You as I choose with free will yet knowing You love us and accept us as we accept and love You for all that You have done on our behalf, in Jesus name, amen.

Walk peacefully with Me through this day. You are wondering how you will cope with all that is expected of you. You must traverse this day like any other: one step at a time. Instead of mentally rehearsing how you will do this or that, keep your mind on My Presence and on taking the next step. The more demanding your day, the more help you can expect from Me. This is a training opportunity, since I designed you for deep dependence on your Shepherd-King. Challenging times wake you up and amplify your awareness of needing My help.

When you don’t know what to do, wait while I open the way before you. Trust that I know what I’m doing, and be ready to follow My lead. I will give strength to you, and I will bless you with Peace.

The Lord replied, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.” —Exodus 33:14

The bolts of your gates will be iron and bronze, and your strength will equal your days.                                     —Deuteronomy 33:25

May the God of peace, who through the blood of the eternal covenant brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, equip you with everything good for doing his will, and may he work in us what is pleasing to him, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.                                     —Hebrews 13:20–21

The Lord gives strength to his people; the Lord blesses his people with peace —Psalm 29:11

Dear God, thank You for Your presence as I walk through this life with Your promise that You will be there for me in my hour of need as You have designed me to  amplify my awareness of my deep need for You as my shepherd-King with deep dependence on You that I will know Your voice  and You are there with me to give me rest, while my strength will equal the number of my days, in Jesus name, amen.

Every time something thwarts your plans or desires, use that as a reminder to communicate with Me. This practice has several benefits. The first is obvious: Talking with Me blesses you and strengthens our relationship. Another benefit is that disappointments, instead of dragging you down, are transformed into opportunities for good. This transformation removes the sting from difficult circumstances, making it possible to be joyful in the midst of adversity.

Begin by practicing this discipline in all the little disappointments of daily life. It is often these minor setbacks that draw you away from My Presence.When you reframe setbacks as opportunities, you find that you gain much more than you have lost. It is only after much training that you can accept major losses in this positive way. But it is possible to attain the perspective of the apostle Paul, who wrote: Compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus, I consider everything I once treasured to be as insignificant as rubbish.

Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.                           —Colossians 4:2

But whatever was to my profit I now consider loss for the sake of Christ. What is more, I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them rubbish, that I may gain Christ.                                                     —Philippians 3:7–8

Dear God, thank You for helping me find You during times of need and being a part of my world allowing me to gain from You and share with others as You provide opportunities to share and grow according to Your plan for me, in Jesus name, amen.

Thanks be to God😇🙏

Grow strong in the Light of My Presence. Your weakness does not repel Me. On the contrary, it attracts My Power, which is always available to flow into a yielded heart. Do not condemn yourself for your constant need of help. Instead, come to Me with your gaping neediness; let the Light of My Love fill you.

A yielded heart does not whine or rebel when the going gets rough. It musters the courage to thank Me even during hard times. Yielding yourself to My will is ultimately an act of trust. In quietness and trust is your strength.

The Lord is gracious and righteous; our God is full of compassion. The Lord protects the simplehearted; when I was in great need, he saved me. Be at rest once more, O my soul, for the Lord has been good to you.  —Psalm 116:5–7

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

This is what the Sovereign Lord, the Holy One of Israel, says: “In repentance and rest is your salvation, in quietness and trust is your strength, but you would have none of it.”  —Isaiah 30:15

Dear God, thank You for providing the Holy Spirit in my life, and for all who believe, that we may try to do Your will, as You see fit, along with countless others in my life who help and encourage me while also trying to share with others, forgive me when I stumble, thank You for being ever faithful that I may count on You to the end of time with Your grace and forgiveness in Jesus name, amen.

Do not be discouraged by the difficulty of keeping your focus on Me. I know that your heart’s desire is to be aware of My Presence continually. This is a lofty goal; you aim toward it but never fully achieve it in this life. Don’t let feelings of failure weigh you down. Instead, try to see yourself as I see you. First of all, I am delighted by your deep desire to walk closely with Me through your life. I am pleased each time you initiate communication with Me. In addition, I notice the progress you have made since you first resolved to live in My Presence.

When you realize that your mind has wandered away from Me, don’t be alarmed or surprised. You live in a world that has been rigged to distract you. Each time you plow your way through the massive distractions to communicate with Me, you achieve a victory. Rejoice in these tiny triumphs, and they will increasingly light up your days.

Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. Who is he that condemns? Christ Jesus, who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us.                    —Romans 8:33–34

Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has gone through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet was without sin. Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.  —Hebrews 4:14–16

Dear God, thank You for being my intermediary for me and all who believe paying the price for our sins as a perfect sacrafice as our Lord and Savior help us to Love one another as you have loved us that we may go forth teaching preaching and baptizing in the name of the Father the Son, and the Holy Spirir as you have commanded that we may be part of your church and one with you as your body working not to earn salvation as Your grace has already taken care of that but rather to be Your light here on earth, in Jesus name, amen.

Learn to listen to Me even while you are listening to other people. As they open their souls to your scrutiny, you are on holy ground. You need the help of My Spirit to respond appropriately. Ask Him to think through you, live through you, love through you. My own Being is alive within you in the Person of the Holy Spirit. If you respond to others’ needs through your unaided thought processes, you offer them dry crumbs. When the Spirit empowers your listening and speaking, My streams of living water flow through you to other people. Be a channel of My Love, Joy, and Peace by listening to Me as you listen to others.

“Do not come any closer,” God said. “Take off your sandals, for the place where you are standing is holy ground.” —Exodus 3:5

Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own.                  —1 Corinthians 6:19

Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him.” By this he meant the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were later to receive. Up to that time the Spirit had not been given, since Jesus had not yet been glorified.        —John 7:38–39

Dear God, thank You for sharing Your Word with me that I may continue to get to know You as I live in this world, help me to shine according to Your will, though I am far from perfect, by listening to the Holy Spirit, and trying to follow where You lead I will be made whole and help shine Your light for myself and others as I channel Your love, peace and joy meant for each of us, in Jesus name, amen.

I am with you. I am with you. I am with you. Heaven’s bells continually peal with that promise of My Presence. Some people never hear those bells because their minds are earthbound and their hearts are closed to Me. Others hear the bells only once or twice in their lifetimes, in rare moments of seeking Me above all else. My desire is that My “sheep” hear My voice continually, for I am the ever-present Shepherd.

Quietness is the classroom where you learn to hear My voice. Beginners need a quiet place in order to still their minds. As you advance in this discipline, you gradually learn to carry the stillness with you wherever you go.When you step back into the mainstream of life, strain to hear those glorious bells: I am with you. I am with you. I am with you.

Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. —Jeremiah 29:12–13

“I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me… My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them out of my hand.”                       —John 10:14, 27–28

Dear God, thank You for being with me and all believers as You paid the ultimate price for our sins that if we believe and confess our sins, you will make us whole so that we may be set aside by your angels on the right to proceed on to heaven to be with You throughout eternity, in Jesus name, amen.

Linger in My Presence a while. Rein in your impulses to plunge into the day’s activities. Beginning your day alone with Me is essential preparation for success. A great athlete takes time to prepare himself mentally for the feat ahead of him before he moves a muscle. Similarly, your time of being still in My Presence equips you for the day ahead of you. Only I know what will happen to you this day. I have arranged the events you will encounter as you go along your way. If you are not adequately equipped for the journey, you will grow weary and lose heart. Relax with Me while I ready you for action.

For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.                             —Ephesians 2:10

Consider him who endured such opposition from sinful men, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart. —Hebrews 12:3

Dear God, thank You for inviting me to spend time in Your word that I may be ready to accept and deal with this day in a way that I may follow Your will and delight in Your way, in Jesus name, amen.

Do not expect to be treated fairly in this life. People will say and do hurtful things to you, things that you don’t deserve. When someone mistreats you, try to view it as an opportunity to grow in grace. See how quickly you can forgive the one who has wounded you. Don’t be concerned about setting the record straight. Instead of obsessing about other people’s opinions of you, keep your focus on Me. Ultimately, it is My view of you that counts.

As you concentrate on relating to Me, remember that I have clothed you in My righteousness and holiness. I see you attired in these radiant garments, which I bought for you with My blood. This also is not fair; it is pure gift.When others treat you unfairly, remember that My ways with you are much better than fair. My ways are Peace and Love, which I have poured out into your heart by My Spirit.

 Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.  —Colossians 3:13

I delight greatly in the Lord; my soul rejoices in my God. For he has clothed me with garments of salvation and arrayed me in a robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom adorns his head like a priest, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.  —Isaiah 61:10

In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace that he lavished on us with all wisdom and understanding.               —Ephesians 1:7–8

And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us.                       —Romans 5:5

Dear God, thank You for clothing me in radiant garnets paid for by Your holy sacrafice that I might live free within Your grace in peace and love according to Your will for me and all believers, in Jesus name, amen.

As you become increasingly aware of My Presence, you find it easier to discern the way you should go. This is one of the practical benefits of living close to Me. Instead of wondering about what is on the road ahead or worrying about what you should do if…or when…, you can concentrate on staying in communication with Me.When you actually arrive at a choice-point, I will show you which direction to go.

Many people are so preoccupied with future plans and decisions that they fail to see choices they need to make today. Without any conscious awareness, they make their habitual responses. People who live this way find a dullness creeping into their lives. They sleepwalk through their days, following well-worn paths of routine.

I, the Creator of the universe, am the most creative Being imaginable. I will not leave you circling in deeply rutted paths. Instead, I will lead you along fresh trails of adventure, revealing to you things you did not know. Stay in communication with Me. Follow My guiding Presence.

I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you and watch over you.       —Psalm 32:8

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.                       —Genesis 1:1

Dear God, thank You for staying in constant communication with me so that I might discern Your will for me and You will show me the direction to take for Your names sake, I feel Your creative influence and direction in my life growing stronger each day as You lead me along new paths of righteousness continually revealing new portions of Your Word that I may continue to learn and benefit from Your loving direction, in Jesus name, amen.

Come to Me when you are hurting, and I will soothe your pain. Come to Me when you are joyful, and I will share your Joy, multiplying it many times over. I am All you need, just when you need it. Your deepest desires find fulfillment in Me alone.

This is the age of self-help. Bookstores abound with books about “taking care of number one,” making oneself the center of all things. The main goal of these methodologies is to become self-sufficient and confident. You, however, have been called to take a “road less traveled”: continual dependence on Me. True confidence comes from knowing you are complete in My Presence. Everything you need has its counterpart in Me.

“I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.”  —John 15:5

Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.      —James 1:4

Dear God, thank You for another day to study and share Your word knowing that You are all I need and and that I am complete in You and with You in me, provides for my every need. By following Your path for me will make me whole rather than trying to control my world I need to remain faithful on your higher path for me rather than following the ways of others and finding myself alone and empty, the door You have opened none can close, and the door You shut, none can open, keep me safe and steadfast by Your side and in Your love, in Jesus name, amen.

I am God with you, for all time and throughout eternity. Don’t let the familiarity of that concept numb its impact on your consciousness. My perpetual Presence with you can be a continual source of Joy, springing up and flowing out in streams of abundant Life. Let your mind reverberate with meanings of My Names: Jesus—the Lord saves, and Emmanuel—God with us. Strive to remain conscious of My Presence even in your busiest moments. Talk with Me about whatever delights you, whatever upsets you, whatever is on your mind. These tiny steps of daily discipline, taken one after the other, will keep you close to Me on the path of Life.

“She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.” … “The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel”—which means, “God with us.”  —Matthew 1:21, 23

“You have made known to me the paths of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence.”  —Acts 2:28

Dear God, thank You for being with me providing me love, peace and joy. Help me stay present in the moments of my life and in constant communication with You as You guide my steps on the path You have chosen for me, that I may be kept safe in Your undying love, in Jesus name, amen.

Lie down in green pastures of Peace. Learn to unwind whenever possible, resting in the Presence of your Shepherd. This electronic age keeps My children “wired” much of the time, too tense to find Me in the midst of their moments. I built into your very being the need for rest. How twisted the world has become when people feel guilty about meeting this basic need! How much time and energy they waste by being always on the go, rather than taking time to seek My direction for their lives.

I have called you to walk with Me down paths of Peace. I want you to blaze a trail for others who desire to live in My peaceful Presence. I have chosen you less for your strengths than for your weaknesses, which amplify your need for Me. Depend on Me more and more, and I will shower Peace on all your paths.

The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not be in want. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he restores my soul. He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. —Psalm 23:1–3

By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work. And God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done.  —Genesis 2:2–3

“To shine on those living in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the path of peace.” —Luke 1:79

Dear God, thank You for me being able to unwind in Your presence and be blessed by You in so many ways, by letting go and simply trying to follow where You lead me I will be blessed rather than getting all caught up in the need to always be on the go, just for the sake of “being on the go” makes no sense, rather than seeking Your direction, so often I am told by others I am here for a purpose as God is not through with me yet, the more I take time to read Your Word and spend time with You each day, I do amplify my need for you, physically, spiritually, having me depend on You more and more each day that in my weakness I may blaze a trail to bring others to You, oh God, in Jesus name, amen.

As you turn your attention to Me, feel the Light of My Presence shining upon you. Open your mind and heart to receive My heavenly smile of approval. Let My gold-tinged Love wash over you and soak into the depths of your being. As you are increasingly filled with My Being, you experience joyous union with Me: I in you, and you in Me. Your Joy-in-Me and My Joy-in-you become intertwined and inseparable. I suffuse your soul with Joy in My Presence; at My right hand there are pleasures forevermore.

“My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one: I in them and you in me. May they be brought to complete unity to let the world know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.”  —John 17:20–23

You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy; at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.  —Psalm 16:11 nkjv

Dear God, thank You for shinning Your light on me that I may be able to see Your higher path for me and joyfully experience Your will for me knowing that while I am not perfect, I am a sinner, because Jesus came down from heaven, lived a perfect life, paid the price on the cross for my sins, and the sins of all believers may be forgiven if they believe in Jesus Christ, the messiah,  who is One with the Father and the Holy Spirit by whom all things were made, if we have faith and ask for forgiveness our sins will be forgiven,  in the end Jesus will come again on the clouds with a sword in his right hand, his sheep will know his voice and he shall know his followers, His angels will separate his followers on the right to be in heaven for eternity with no sin, no sickness, all will be well while the others will be cast into the fire as noone comes to the father but through his son our Lord Jesus, in Jesus name, amen.
