Fill up with the Peace of God.

I am the Lord of Peace. I give you Peace at all times and in every way.

There is a deep, gaping hole within you that can be filled only by My peaceful Presence.

People who don’t know Me try to fill that emptiness in many different ways, or they simply pretend it isn’t there. Even My children often fail to recognize the full extent of their need: at all times and in every situation. But recognizing your neediness is only half the battle. The other half is to believe I can — and will — supply all you need.

Shortly before My death, I promised Peace to My disciples and to all who would become My followers. I made it clear that this is a gift: something I provide freely and lovingly. So your responsibility is to receive this glorious gift, acknowledging to Me not only your need but also your desire. Then wait expectantly in My Presence, ready to receive My Peace in full measure. If you like, you can express your openness by saying,
“Jesus, I receive Your Peace.”

Wait expectantly in My Presence

Now may the Lord of peace Himself give you peace at all times and in every way. The Lord be with all of you. — 2 Thessalonians 3:16

My God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. — Philippians 4:19

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. — John 14:27

“Of course you’ll encounter trouble. But behold a God of power who can take any evil and turn it into a door of hope.” — Catherine Marshall

Do not let your heart envy sinners, but always be zealous for the fear of the Lord. There is surely a future hope for you, and your hope will not be cut off. — Proverbs 23:17-18

After many years of writing her own words in her prayer journal, missionary Sarah Young decided to be more attentive to the Savior’s voice and begin listening for what He was saying. So with pen in hand, she embarked on a journey that forever changed her—and many others around the world.

In these powerful pages are the words and Scriptures Jesus lovingly laid on her heart. Words of reassurance, comfort, and hope. Words that have made her increasingly aware of His presence and allowed her to enjoy His peace.

Jesus is calling out to you in the same way. Maybe you share the author’s need for a great sense of “God with you”. Or perhaps Jesus seems distant without you knowing why. Or maybe you have wandered farther from Him that you ever imagined you would. Here is a year’s worth of daily readings from Young’s journals to bring you closer to Christ and move your time with Him from monologue to a dialogue.

Each day is written as if Jesus Himself were speaking to you. Because He is. Do you hear Him calling?
