If you remain in me and my words remain in you, you may ask for anything you want, and it will be granted! When you produce much fruit, you are my true disciples. This brings great glory to my Father. (John 15:7, NLT)
We tend to think relationship with the Lord is the same as other relationship experiences; we filter everything, including the Lord and His working in our lives, through the whole of life’s experience.
Human relationships, for example, make us confident and support us emotionally and so we envision relationship with the Lord in the same way; but when outcomes disappoint and disappointment is experienced again and again, those negative pattern create a brand new hurdle.
Beyond human experiences or any such limitation, our trust in God is rewarded; He is, again and again a consistent, loving, forgiving provider. His grace flows into our lives making genuine fellowship with Him possible. He sends His Word to confirm unconditional appeals by His Spirit to quicken and make real every promise of His.
Remain in His Word. Meditate there. One minute, or two, or more—the key is there. In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God. God and His Word are one. Access to Him is through His Word. His Word answers. Daily . . . go there!
You do have time.
