IAM Abiding in Christ

John 15:7 NKJV If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.

Abide: verb: 1: to remain stable or fixed in a state 2: to continue in a place

The word abide makes one assumption: We at some point reset our lives in Jesus. When you made the decision to enter into a relationship with Jesus, your time of abiding in him started. I don’t usually like the comfort zone as a place, but the Jesus zone works as a place of perfect peace.

When we abide in Jesus the person, his words take hold in our lives as well. God delivers to combo deal of the real Jesus, and his powerful words to us. Jesus living inside of us, speaks to us through his words. I want all the voices in my head to originate from Jesus.

When the voices that influence me and words I repeat to others come from insecurity, sin, anger, bitterness and hate, I lose my way. I hurt others and I hurt God. Just when I think the devil has accomplished an evil plan of hurt and lies, I still have a choice.
I can hurdle down the self hatred, depression, sin cycle. Or I can choose to run back to the place where Jesus is. I pray you have the strength to ask forgiveness, and get back into the Jesus zone. Fall on his grace and mercy for strength.

When Jesus says “if you will, then I will” He speaks a powerful promise. When the words are in the color red in my bible, I pay more attention to what’s said. The power to overcome our sins and the world’s attacks rests in God’s word. The action of allowing the living word to take hold in your life defines abiding in Christ.

Then by the grace of God, we abide in Jesus and his words take hold of our lives, the most amazing promise waits for us. Ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.

I have a long list of things to ask for, starting with internal transformation and healing for me. The power to see God’s miracles in our lives comes from the promise of abiding in Jesus. The power of God’s living word in your life, leads to the ability to pray and ask for whatever we desire!

The faith to move mountains comes from knowing God.
The power to see God change the angry hate filled person lives inside of you through Jesus!

Simple Equation: You adide in Jesus. Jesus’ words abide in you
Output: Ask whatever you desire, and it shall be done.

Ask Jesus to make his home inside of you
Ask Jesus to make you stable
Ask Jesus to strengthen you to continue in the place where he dwells

Let’s declare the truth about our identity today!
IAM Abiding in Jesus
IAM the Temple where Jesus dwells
IAM Inhabited by the Word of God.
IAM filled with the power to see any miracle done by the name of Jesus

IAM Created with a Design

EPHESIANS 4:24 NLT Put on your new nature, created to be like God—truly righteous and holy.

God created you with a purpose and a design. God had blueprints for your mind, heart, personality, gifts and passions. The wonderful creator chose himself as the design. Our original purpose and destiny always started with God’s image.

Gods-Blueprint

Let’s make a list of all the amazing things the bible speaks about our God:
I found a list of scriptures and descriptions. The bible gives us 101 characters of God.
Some of my favorites from the list: Love, The Beginning and the End, Infinite, All powerful, Mighty to Save.

The ability and raw building blocks to transform into someone like God lives inside of you. God placed it inside of you from the beginning. You inherited God’s spiritual DNA! The list of 101 attributes of God seems overwhelming at first. I want to encourage you to start with a simple prayer and desire: “God, make me more like you.”

We don’t have to focus on all the things we haven’t experienced life transformation yet. Focus on where you want to go, and our God who get’s us there. Don’t allow the negative thoughts, doubts and lies to take over your thoughts. Do not allow thoughts of condemnation or guilt to take hold in your life. The distance between our current state and our glorified state seems daunting. Jesus bridges that gap for us.

 

The wonderful journey of taking on a new nature awaits you. Jesus lives inside of you. He makes a home in your heart. The Holy Spirit performs spiritual surgery inside of you. Today, ask God to make you better than you are in one small way. The new life you have inside of you allows you to love, care, minister and listen more. You may even surprise yourself with your new found nature.

Amazing journey

Title: Wonderful Maker – Chris Tomlin Cover (Daniel Choo)
Owner: Daniel Choo

You spread out the skies over empty space
Said “let there be light”
Into a dark and formless world Your light
Was born

You spread out Your arms over empty hearts
Said “let there be light”
Into a dark and hopeless world Your Son
Was born

Pre-Chorus:
You made the world and saw that it was good
You sent Your only son for You are good

Chorus:
What a wonderful Maker
What a wonderful Saviour
How majestic Your whispers
And how humble Your love
With a strength like no other
And the heart of a Father
How majestic Your whispers
What a wonderful God

No eye has fully seen, how beautiful the cross
And we have only heard
The faintest whispers of how great You are
