S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.
Here Jesus gave His disciples a word concerning their faithfulness. He said, “If you stay with me and you keep my words in you, then whatever you ask for will come to pass.”
I must say this is an unusual promise. I’ve seen it work a hundred times, and I’ve seen it not work a hundred times. Wait … let me say it better. The times I didn’t see it work I had put my time limit on it. What I mean is, as I was reading this passage this AM I saw a note on this verse I had marked and it said “such and such needs to happen by 12-31-15.” Well … IT DIDN’T HAPPEN! But guess what, I’m just fine. I weathered the storm at that time and learned to trust God more. As I looked this AM at the ultimatum I gave God three years ago, I’m more convinced now than ever that it will HAPPEN! But I’m more convinced that it will happen “In HIS Time.” When It does happen In HIS Time, my life will be all the richer. My faith will have grown, and I will be more determined than ever that God works all things together for my good! So today, take your time limits off the ask and ask for what YOU need. He’ll answer In HIS Time.
I’m thankful to know that you always keep your promises in YOUR time. Amen
