In following God, we may experience uncertainty, but He promises to be with us and to provide what we need.
To get the most out of this devotion, set aside time to read the Scripture referenced throughout.
Starting something new can be difficult. Whether it’s a job, a relationship, or a big move, new beginnings come with great uncertainty and require mental, physical, and spiritual preparation. Thankfully, believers have everything they need to face the unknown.
Before the crucifixion, Jesus promised the disciples wouldn’t be left alone—the Holy Spirit would come to live within them. In fact, being indwelled by God’s Spirit would be better than having Jesus Himself in the flesh. As He told them, It is to your advantage that I am leaving; for if I do not leave, the Helper will not come to you; but if I go, I will send Him to you (John 16:7).
In addition to having the best possible guide, we’ve also been assured that God will supply our needs and equip us to do His will (Phil. 4:19; 2 Tim. 3:16-17). So we can confidently move forward with new endeavors, knowing that the Lord will continue to lead and help us. And while most of us would prefer to see the entire path ahead, we can rest in the certainty that God will be present at every turn.
