“If you abide in me and my words abide in you, ask whatever you will, and it shall be done unto you” – John 15:7
In this verse the promise and its conditions are inseparable. The verse suggests that if we want God to answer all our prayers, we must first abide in him.
To abide in him means walking in obedience in accordance with his word and the leading of his Spirit. It is only when we keep his commands, we fully abide in his love, if we love him, we will obey him.
Beloved brother & sister, I’m sure you have a list of prayer requests that you want God to answer, but may I urge you to first search your heart with full honesty and seek to abide in our Savior.
And as you continue to abide in him, believe that he is working on your request and in due time will answer them and fill your heart with overflowing joy.
May God give you the grace to seek him, love him and abide in him, and may he fulfil all the desires of your heart for the Glory of His Name!
