Over the last two months God has been speaking to me about abiding in Him. I have been meditating on this and probably not as much as I should have hence why He is still speaking to me about it. The more I abide in Him the more He will abide in me is what His words says.
A couple of weeks ago a man in our church, who often gives a word of prophesy, spoke to me after church one Sunday and this is what he had to say.
“Debby, God gave me this word today but I didn’t felt led to speak it to the church but I’m going to tell you.” He says chuckling a little. I instantly heard in my spirit this is just for you Deb.
So he goes on to say, “You know we are to take every thought captive, right?”
I said, “Yeah.”
“Well, the Lord says, if you are abiding in Me and I am abiding in you then there is no need to take every thought captive because you are constantly and continually thinking upon Me.” Again he starts chuckling and says to me, “Isn’t that so profound and wouldn’t that be so awesome it we all did that, I mean really, that would be, HALLELUJAH all the time!”
I said, “Boy, that would be awesome if only I could get out of my own way!”
It always amazes me that God knows when you need a word of confirmation and the exact person(s) to speak through. This man had no idea that God was speaking this very thing to me. Abide in me and I will abide in you and He was calling me to spend more time with Him! I mean every devotional I went to was all about abiding in Me and others in the church were speaking about how God wants us to abide more and more.
John 15:4 Remain in Me, and I will remain in you…
He wants more of me and He wants more of you!
Let me ask you do you want more of Him?
Are you willing to make more room for Him to abide in you?
