TITLE: FROM THE HEART OF GOD
VERSE: [Jesus said,] “If you remain in me and my words remain in you, you may ask for anything you want, and it will be granted!” JOHN 15:7
“In Me and My words in you. You struggle to understand this, but it isn’t complicated. I graft My life into yours and yours into Mine; we become one. And I plant My words in you for them to grow up and bear fruit. This is why you are able to relate to Me and pray in complete faith.
“Maybe it will help if you understand what this does not mean. When I give you an instruction, I want you to consume it, not weigh it as an option. When I give you a promise, I want you to cling to it regardless of what you see or what anyone else says about it. When I give you encouragement, I expect you not to dismiss it as ‘fluff’ or underestimate its power but to be nourished by it as life-giving truth. To have My words ‘abiding’ or ‘remaining’ in you means not only to nod your head in agreement but to let them shape your identity. I speak My Father’s spiritual DNA into your spirit with My voice. On that basis, I give you this promise of answered prayer.
“Hold on to My words. They are more than encouragement, instruction, and promise. They are your life. They shape you. They plant seeds in your heart that will grow up and produce a harvest. They are promises that come true only when you can hold on to them without letting go, even when wind and waves try to shake you off of them. I honor the holy stubbornness of those who have so thoroughly embraced My words that they could not possibly give up on them without abandoning a part of themselves. Don’t just hear them. Let them become unquenchably alive within you.”
Jesus, I have longed for the fulfillment of this promise; let the condition become my reality, my experience in every area of my life. Let me find my identity —every impulse, every breath, every heartbeat —in Your words. And may the Father answer my prayers as though they come directly from You.
