calls me, and I will obey. Whatever comes against me will not succeed if I stay
focused on His purpose. There will be hard times, but I must keep calm in His
never-changing purpose and unlimited power. If I lose my peace for even a
moment, I must give Him my unrest, and my struggle. I must regain His peace
(Philippians 4:6-7). I can accomplish nothing when I am upset and stressed out.
In giving Him all that I face, I get rid of my selfish needs, and concentrate on
His purpose for me.
I will always believe that I can do what He has
called me to do. He is faithful and will do the work (1 Thessalonians 5:24). But
His work is only accomplished by His spirit working through me. I must surrender
all my desires for His. I must surrender what I consider my inadequacies for His
ability. I must surrender. In my surrender I discover His power.
Focusing on His call, I will concentrate on the daily things which need
be done to work toward His vision. If I lose the focus, I will lose the purpose
for my life. If I rush the work to attain His purpose, I will become discouraged
by the immensity of it all. Daily I lay down my cross, and ask Him to come, and
lead. I will remember each day that He never asks me to do something without
providing the power to accomplish it. And that is enough for my
