I would like to share today’s words of Jesus by Sarah Young:

January 12

LET ME PREPARE YOU for the day that stretches out before you. I know exactly what this day wlll 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 somehow visualize what is on the road ahead. However, there is a better way to be prepared for whatever you will encounter today: Spend quality 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.

   The Lord replied, “My Presence will go with you,
   and I will give you rest.” ー Exodus 33:14

   ”Remain in me, and I will remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by
   itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you
   remain in me. I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains
   in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can
   do nothing. If anyone does not remain in me, he is like a branch that
   is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into
   the fire and burned. If you remain in me and my words remain in you,
   ask whatever you wish, and it will be given you.” ー John 15:4-7
