EXCERPT FROM JESUS CALLING: ENJOYING PEACE IN HIS PRESENCE
©2013 Sarah Young
February 9

SEEK MY FACE more and more. You are really just beginning your journey of intimacy with Me. It is not an easy road, but it is a delightful and privileged way: a treasure hunt. I am the Treasure, and the Glory of My Presence glistens and shimmers along the way. Hardships are part of the journey too. I mete them out ever so carefully, in just the right dosage, with a tenderness you can hardly imagine. Do not recoil from afflictions since they are among My most favored gifts. Trust Me and don’t be afraid, for I am your Strength and Song.

When you said, “Seek my face,” my heart said to You, “Your face, LORD, I will seek.” —Psalm 27:8 (NKJV)

But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair. —2 Cor. 4:7-8

Surely God is my salvation; I will trust and not be afraid. The LORD, the LORD, is my strength and my song; he has become my salvation. —Isaiah 12:2
