Love, Light and Life

... more than a devotional

If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.

John 15:7 NKJV

The word of God is Jesus Christ. Christ is in every person who has received Him, and has believed in His name. But much more than that, the Word of God desires that everyone who has come to Him will abide in Him, i.e dwell in Him consciously, such that He will also dwell in such a one, filling up their heart vitally.

One effect of the word of God abiding in anyone is that, He transforms them. The Word changes our inner being, by exchanging our yearnings and desires for His own. He changes anyone who abides in Him from the inside, bringing such a person into synchrony with the will and desires of God.

Jesus said, if you abide in me, and I in you, you will ask what you desire and it will be done for you. Why? Because if you will live in this way, that is abiding in Him, and His words in you, then what you desire will be in alignment with what God desires. Thus, the things you'd naturally ask will be in alignment with God's will, and not your human agenda.

This is the secret of receiving answers. The one with the keys of heaven, will bind things on earth as they are already bound in heaven, and loose them on earth as they are already loosed in heaven. This is a person operating with the fullness of the will of God, and this is the Lord's desire for you. 

Affirmation: In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I don't function by my own human thoughts and desires, but by the thoughts and desires of the Word of God. I abide in the Word, and He is what I'm most conscious of. The will of God is my priority. I pray, and act from synchrony with His will in Jesus name. Amen.
