13 Preface This book is more than a devotional it s an invitation to hear from God. You may find yourself in the same place I did over ten years ago. I knew God, but I didn t know how to talk to Him, and I certainly didn t know how to hear Him. As I pursued loftier heights of faith, I stumbled upon Sarah Young s classic, Jesus Calling. I marveled that she was able to hear God speak to her in the way that she did. I thought her gift must be so unique that I couldn t possibly hear from God in that same way. It wasn t until recently that I found out that she herself was inspired by writers who heard from God in the very same manner two women in the 1930s, who wrote a book called God Calling. So, in an effort to hear God in the way that these women did, I began rising before dawn, meditating upon Scripture, and sitting in silence to hear God s voice. And something happened within my spirit that completely transformed my faith. I listened, and God spoke to my heart in ways I didn t think possible. The things I wrote du ring my devotion times are what you ll find within this book. The year is divided up into 52 topics that are listed in a handy index at the back of the book. Here s the thing: God wants to speak to YOU. Although God can use others to speak to you, He also wants to speak directly to you and have you hear Him. He wants an intimate relationship with you so that you might stand firm in your faith. I challenge you to begin, just as I did, setting aside time to meditate on Scripture, asking God what He wants to say to you, and trusting what He has promised: Call to Me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know. JEREMIAH 33:3 (n i v )

14 Anxiety

15 January 1 Heart Knowledge You say you know the truth, but the worry within you says something entirely different. Your restless soul begs for stillness, a peace that gives you the confident hope you need to carry on. But the troubles of life trump your faith and you find yourself growing too weary to believe what you know to be true. Listen to Me. I ve never forsaken you, and I m not about to now. Within My grasp is every detail of your life past, present, and future. You know this just be still for a moment and listen closely to My still, small voice. Until your last breath, until that moment when you enter into My presence, I AM with you at all times and in all ways. Trust in who I AM, and nothing else. Your faith can t carry you unless you remain fixed on Me. I m the God who created all things and keeps the universe in motion. Your universe, the problems within you and without, are not bigger than I AM. What exactly do you think is too big for Me? What miracle is it that I can t perform? Whatever it is, just be still, and know deep within that I AM God. Be still, and know that I am God. PSALM 46:10 (n l t )

16 Trust Me in Everything January 2 You tend to trust Me to work the small miracles in your life, but remain unsure of My abilities to perform the bigger ones. I am not a lesser God according to your circumstances or the current state of your faith. My power and presence in your life is unchanging, so depend upon Me as if your life depends on it because it does. My will for your life may allow for troubles, but I will always give you grace in proportion to them. Trusting in Me means living with the unknowns, facing fear with faith, and believing in what you know is true. When you re consumed with anxiety, drowning in despair, and unable to walk in the faith you profess, fall to your knees in prayer and I will be there. I ll meet you where you are. In your weakness, I will be your strength. Thank Me for all I ve done and all I have yet to do. In everything, the good and the bad, the laughter and the tears, the strength and the fear, don t allow your heart to be moved. Stand firm in your faith and trust Me completely in everything. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. PHILIPPIANS 4:6 (e s v )
