Scripture tells us that if we abide in Christ and His words abide in us, we can ask whatever we wish and it will be done for us. (John 15:7) This is also said in Psalm 37:4 -Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you the desire of your heart. That’s a pretty great promise!
When I first encountered this scripture it seemed like – woo hoo! I can ask for ANYTHING I WANT. But as I have spent more time abiding in the Lord, I have realized that my heart’s desire is Him. Him alone. Everything else pales in comparison.
The more I abide in Him… the more I fall in love with Him, Jesus sweeps into my heart and amazes me with His Love. He has given me what I truly want.
