TGIF-If My Words Abide In You…

If you live in Me [abide vitally united to Me] and My words remain in you and continue to live in your hearts, ask whatever you will, and it shall be done for you.                                                                                        –John 15:7(AMPC)

Many folks who read this, especially folks in the early stages of their walk with Jesus, focus on the ask whatever you will promise of this verse. They are focused on their desires like a child wanting a toy and in doing this they miss the condition Jesus set for this promise.

IF.. you abide in him (Jesus) and his word (the bible) abides/dwells/lives In you, is the condition required before the promise is met. When this is done an amazing thing happens.

The longer you abide/live/dwell in Jesus and the more and more of his word you integrate into your heart and mind, the more your desires shift to line up with the will of God, and less and less do you want your own will to be accomplished. You slowly adopt a biblical worldview, seeing life from Gods perspective.

Once that begins to occur, your personal desires matter less and less and your desire for Gods will to be accomplished in your life increases more and more, and, you shift to becoming a ministering, sharing saint and not a spiritual child still drinking milk and not the meat of his word.

May the Lord open the eyes of our hearts, stir up a desire for his word and use us to his glory.

Open the eyes of my heart, Lord
Open the eyes of my heart
I want to see You
I want to see You

To see You high and lifted up
Shining’ in the light of Your glory
Pour out Your power and love
As we sing holy, holy, holy

In Jesus name

 Amen
