'IF ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall 
ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. Herein 
is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall
ye be my disciples. (John 15:7,8)

This tremendous promise is made to those who abide in
Him and in His Word. You and your Lord become one in
vision and purpose, His will becomes your will, so that
whatever you ask glorifies the Father. These two verses
depict the walk of Jesus, for Jesus said,
'He only does what He sees the Father doing,'
and, His work on earth is
'to glorify His Father in heaven.'

I have heard sermons on the middle part of these verses
where men preach all kinds of nonsense. 'You can ask
for what you want in faith, and it will be given to you.'
Not so! The promise of Jesus is predicated on
relationship, so the asking is based on something very

So, Reader, are you asking the question, 'How do I do
this?' For the next week or so take a couple of verses;
write them on a 3x5 card. Take it with you.
Read, ponder, listen.
Jot notes on the back. Then take another couple of
verses and do the same thing. By this time you might
need a notebook so you don't lose what the Lord is
showing you!
Let the Living Word become your dwelling place.
