Listen to this devotion

Always walk with Jesus.

In the Word

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight (Proverbs 3:5–6).

Of the Word

Traveling alone can be scary. No one else to depend on, to help in an emergency, to fend off danger. It’s different when we travel with a trusted companion and friend.

When God called Abraham to travel to the Promised Land, Abraham trusted God to travel with him. Abraham had a friend in God. When God told Moses to lead His people out of the desert and return to the Promised Land, God assured him: “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest” (Exodus 33:14). Moses had a Friend he could trust to go with him for the journey.

Jesus called His disciples to journey with Him, preaching the Good News that God loved sinners and had sent His Son to save them. Jesus called them His friends. Jesus told them: “The greatest love you can have for your friends is to give your life for them (John 15:13 GNT). Jesus did that for all of us.

We were God’s enemies, but he made us his friends through the death of his Son… we rejoice because of what God has done through our Lord Jesus Christ, who has now made us God’s friends (Romans 5:10a, 11b GNT).

Walking with my Lord

Jesus, I trust You with all my heart. Always walk with me, dear Lord. In Your name I pray. Amen.
