Praying God’s Word Day-by-Day – Beth Moore (emphasis mine)
Any sacrifice we make in our quest for freedom will be wholly consumed and blessed by God.
Father, help me to clothe myself with the Lord Jesus Christ and not to think about how to gratify the desires of the sinful nature (Romans 12:1-2). I desperately need Your help to do this, Father! Teach me and help me!
Jesus Calling – Sarah Young
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. . . 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. . .
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.
