Jesus Calling

My friend had a book titled "Jesus Calling". This was the entry for March 11.

As you take steps of faith, depending on Me, I will show you how much I can do for you. If you live your life too safely, you will never know the thrill of seeing Me work through you. When I gave you My Spirit, I empowered you to live beyond your natural ability and strength. That's why it is so wrong to measure your energy level against the challenges ahead of you. The issue is not your strength, but Mine, which is limitless. By walking close to Me, you can accomplish My purposes in My strength.

Galatians 5:25 - If we are living now by the Holy Spirit, let us follow the Holy Spirit's leading in every part of our lives.

2 Corinthians 5:7 - We walk by faith, not by sight.

I immediately loved this when I read it. I want to live by the Spirit all the time, but it is so hard. I needed the reminder that God can do anything. And He can use me to do it, not on my strength, but on His. Enjoy.
