This is from yesterday’s Jesus Calling– a great little devotional book:
“Trust me, and don’t be afraid. I want you to view trials as exercises designed to develop your trust-muscles. You live in the midst of fierce spiritual battles, and fear is one of Satan’s favorite weapons. When you start to feel afraid, affirm your trust in Me. Speak out loud, if circumstances permit. Resist the devil in My name, and he will slink away from you. Refresh yourself in My holy presence. Speak or sing praises to Me, and My face will shine radiantly upon you.
Remember that there is no condemnation for those who belong to Me. You have been judged NOT GUILTY for all eternity. Trust me, and don’t be afraid, for I am your Strength, Song, and Salvation.”
So here’s your assignment: Try praying Psalm 23 out loud once a day this week.
When you can, try singing praises to God out loud- in your car, in your house, wherever. Notice what that feels like.
