Devotion for the Twelfth Day of Christmas

He who has prepared us for this very thing is God, who has given us the Spirit as a guarantee.

So we are always of good courage. We know that while we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord, for we walk by faith, not by sight. Yes, we are of good courage, and we would rather be away from the body and at home with the Lord.

~ 2 Corinthians 5:5-8

Sometimes, I get anxious when I can’t see what’s ahead. I worry about the future and fear what might happen. But God’s word tells us to “walk by faith, not by sight.” God doesn’t always let us see what’s ahead, but He’s always got a perfect plan, and He’s always there with us. When the road gets rough and we can’t see around the next bend, God carries us over the rough spots. He always knows what is around the bend, and He is always in control. We don’t always understand, but we know that He is good and His plan is perfect.

Holy Father, forgive me when I doubt and fear because I can’t see the road ahead of me. Help me to remember that You know the road and the Holy Spirit is traveling it with me. Give me the comfort of remembering that You are always in control, and no matter what else the future holds, it always holds You. In the name of Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior. Amen.
