|Linda and I in Cancun|
This morning I am praying. I have a number of requests in mind. With some of these requests, from others and for myself, I do not have a solution. I do not know what to do. On my own I can think of nothing and do nothing. I have no answer, except stay connected to God and pray.
I am connected today. I am dwelling in the house of God, whose temple is my heart. I'm reading John 15:7, where Jesus says "If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you."
I hear God telling me "Why not try this, John?" I am now abiding in him. His words are in me. It is appropriate to ask God for help. So I do. "God, show me what to do to help these people I am praying for. Lead me and empower me. Give me your words of wisdom for others. Help me lead and minister to my church family in these days. Amen."
I am checking this out.
- If I abide in Christ and his words abide in me, then I will know what to ask of God.
- I'm abiding in Christ.
- Therefore my requests that arise in God's presence will be done.
