ALWAYS ABIDE IN HIM, WHO LOVED YOU FROM THE BEGINNING
“Therefore let that abide in you which you heard from the beginning. If what you heard from the beginning abides in you, you also will abide in the Son and in the Father. And this is the promise that He has promised us—eternal life.” 1 John 2:24 NKJV
Oh, Lord I realize that I am guilty of wanting to abide with you only in the circumstances I choose for me, instead of being comfortable to abide with you in Your Choice of circumstances for me.
Jesus was always willing to abide with and in You in the circumstances You chose for Him. That is why there was always an unbroken abiding between The Father and The Son.
When I was saved by the Atonement for my sins by Jesus Christ giving His life on the cross in my place for my sins; I have to begin the act and life style of abiding in You.
There are so many hindrances that seem to get in the way of praying and reading The Word of God.
I have to discipline my mind and my body to be persistent to abide with You through and in the middle of any circumstance that is going on at the moment.
In circumstances where we are uncomfortable when we are not in our comfort zone of our own choosing. I must give these things over to Him, and determine to abide with Him.
As we grow in our faith in Him and learn to trust Him in any circumstance; abiding with and in Him becomes so much a part of us, His nature becomes our nature.
Determine to abide in Jesus wherever we are and we will find that Jesus will always lead and guide us through every situation. Remember the Book of Revelation shows us THAT IN THE END WE WIN, PRAISE THE LORD.
I DO NOT KNOW THE DEFINITE DAY OR HOUR HE IS COMING BACK BUT I DEFINITELY KNOW THAT HE IS COMING BACK FOR THOSE WHO LOVE HIM AND ARE LOOKING FOR HIM,
Love and Blessings Gloria
