“If you abide in Me and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire and it shall be done.” -John 15:7
His words are no substitute for His holy presence, it is a medium that connects us to Him. His words are alive. His words have spirit and life as John 6:63 says. When His words abide in us, it cleanses our thoughts so that we grow more in His likeness and the spirit has the potential to inspire us and guide us where He wills us to reach.
If and when we begin to adhere steadfast to His words with faith, we become one with Him. He works within us and so when we appeal to Him in prayer it is not only us that address Him but also His spirit that abides in us, works for us.
A true Christian’s desire is never in disharmony with the Will of the Divine.
Oh Lord. let your words sink deep in me so that it manifests in every deed throughout the day. Help us adhere to your words, and cleanse us so that You abide in us. Amen.
