God of Our Whole Life

A wise lady gave me a book recently called, 'Jesus Calling' - it is a collection of reflections for each day of the year taken from specific passages.  A few have really stuck out to me recently.  Here is the one for March 23.

"I am a God of both intricate detail and overflowing abundance.  When you entrust the details of your life to Me, you are surprised by how thoroughly I answer your petitions.  I take pleasure in hearing your prayers, so feel free to bring Me all your requests.  Best of all, your faith is strengthened as you see how precisely I respond to your specific prayers.


Because I am infinite in all My ways, you need not fear that I will run out of resources.  Abundance is at the very heart of who I AM.  Come to Me in joyful expectation of receiving all you need - and sometimes much more!  I delight in showering blessings on My beloved children.  Come to Me with open hands and heart, ready to receive all I have for you."

Psalm 36:7-9, Psalm 132:14, John 6:12-13
