Resting in His Presence

A devotional from Jesus Calling: Enjoying Peace in His Presence, by Sarah Young.
"Rest in My radiant Presence. The world around you seems to spin faster and faster, till everything is a blur. Yet there is a cushion of calm at the center of your life, where you live in union with Me. Return to this soothing Center as often as you can, for this is where you are energized: filled with My Love, Joy, and Peace.
The world is a needy place; do not go there for sustenance. Instead, come to Me. Learn to depend on Me alone, and your weakness will become saturated with My Power. When you find your completeness in Me, you can help other people without using them to meet your own needs. Live in the Light of My Presence, and your light will shine brightly into the lives of others." 
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, 
faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.
Galatians 5:22-23

No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, 
God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.
I John 4:12

I definitely needed to hear that today. Thank you, Lord, for helping me to slow down and live in Your Presence.


  1. I think I needed to hear this too. I was thinking about some things along these lines this morning. It is always good to remember to slow down and to remember what is really important and who is always there to help us! Thanks for sharing this message!

  2. The world is a needy place; do not go there for sustenance. Instead, come to Me.

    Thanks so much for this reminder.

    Beautiful blog!
