Worship Wednesday: look to the Master

Have you ever read an excerpt from a book, blog, or article and thought, Wow! That was written for me!

That's what happened when I read the August 7th devotion from Jesus Calling by Sarah Young (keep in mind this is written from the perspective of Jesus talking to you):
"Understanding will never bring you Peace. That's why I have instructed you to trust in Me, not in your understanding. Human beings have a voracious appetite for trying to figure things out, in order to gain a sense of mastery over their lives. But the world presents you with an endless series of problems. As soon as you master one set, another pops up to challenge you. The relief you had anticipated is short-lived. Soon your mind is gearing up again: searching for understanding (mastery), instead of seeking Me (your Master)...

...My Peace is not an elusive goal, hidden at the center of some complicated maze. Actually, you are always enveloped in Peace which is inherent in My Presence. As you look to Me, you gain awareness of this precious Peace."

Lord, please help me to lay down my exhausting-prideful-unproductive endeavors to become master over the challenges in my life. I need to seek You first and rest in the promise that you will supply my needs.
