In one of my recent posts, a couple of people recommended the book Jesus Calling to me.  I bought it right away and I started it at the day that I got it so I’m on the correct calendar date.  I’ll catch up with the beginning of it next year.  But I just am REALLY loving it and wanted to share with you what it said for April 16th.  These are such easy little devotionals to get me {you} going in the morning.  I read it on my Kindle app on my phone before I even get out of bed and it seems to speak to me every day.

April 16

I am calling you to a life of thankfulness.  I want all your moments to be punctuated with thanksgiving.  The basis for your gratitude is My sovereignty.  I am the Creator and the Controller of the universe.  Heaven and earth are filled with My glorious Presence.

When you criticize or complain, you are acting as if you think you could run the world better than I do.  From your limited human perspective, it may look as if I’m mismanaging things.  But you don’t know what I know or see what I see.  If I pulled back the curtain to allow you to view heavenly realms, you would understand much more.  However, I have designed you to live by faith, not by sight.  I lovingly shield you from knowing the future or seeing into the spirit world.  Acknowledge My sovereignty by giving thanks in all circumstances.

And they were calling to one another:
“Holy, holy, holy is the LORD Almighty;
the whole earth is full of his glory.”

Isaiah 6:3

We live by faith, not by sight.

2 Corinthians 5:7

Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

1 Thessalonians 5:18
