Abide With Me

usa-map38

from Jesus Calling, Sarah Young

And he said,
My presence shall go with thee,
and I will give thee rest.
Exodus 33:14

Let me prepare you for the day
that stretches out before you.
I know exactly what this day will contain,
whereas you have only vague ideas about it.
You would like to see a map,
showing all the twists and turns of your journey.
You’d feel more prepared if you could some how
visualize what is on the road ahead.
However, there is a better way
to be prepared for whatever you will encounter t0day:
Spend time with me.

I will not show you what is on the road ahead,
but I will thoroughly equip you for the journey.
My living Presence is your Companion each step of the way,
Stay in continual communication with Me,
whispering My Name
whenever you need to redirect your thoughts.
Thus, you can walk through this day
with your focus on Me.
My abiding Presence is the best road map available.

John 15:4-7
4 Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. 5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. 6 If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. 7 If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.
