ABC's of the Word - X

Today, we get to select any verse!

One of my very, very favorite promises of God's is this:

If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given you.

John 15:7 (NIV)

I love the way that the Contemporary English Version says it:

Stay joined to me and let my teachings become part of you. Then you can pray for whatever you want, and your prayer will be answered.

This verse reminds to that my life is to be about walking so closely with Jesus, that His will becomes MY will and therefore when I ask for whatever I wish, it is already in His will...
and so it is answered!

It is not about me and getting what I want.

It is about Him getting what He wants.

When I am walking close with Him,

I want what He wants!
