Stay Tuned In To God

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

I have learned that I can make it through anything, as long as I abide in God.  Like this morning, I was just talking to God thanking him for all he has done for me.  Consulting him about my day, about what I am looking to accomplish and what I am looking for him to do in my life.  As I continue to pray to him, I believe every prayer that goes up to him.  He spoke to me about this scripture.  We have to stay tuned to God and what he is saying to us.  He promises that if we abide in him and his words abide in us we will ask anything of him and we will have what we ask.  Whatever we are believing him for. You know how we stay tuned in to him.  I remember as a teen I used to love love songs.    I had my favorites and I would call the radio request line and tell them the song I wanted to hear.  I would wait patiently and stay tuned in to that station until my song came on.  I never knew exactly when they were going to play it, but I knew that I had to stay tuned into that station to hear that song.  I did not dare tune in to another station because that station had what I wanted to hear.  We have to stay tuned as I like to say but the word of God says that we must abide in him and let his word abide in us. 

The Apostle Paul stayed with Christ.  He was connected to Jesus radio station.  He never tuned in to another station.  Whatever music God was playing he was listening and learning the words. He continued to let God's word shape and mold the very person he was.  He was a successful Apostle because he did what this scripture stated.  Paul was blessed, he went through a lot and had to deal with a lot but he was stronger than his situation because he was tuned in to the right station.  Imagine if he was tuned in to the Devil's station?  What the Church at Pentecost would have been like.  Those that were trying to remain hopeful but did not have enough faith or their own tried to get encouragement from a person listening to a station from the Devil?  Oh what kind of Hell we would be in.  So stay with the father.  Make sure that your actions your deeds are from him, from abiding in him.  You will never go the wrong way if you abide in him, and if you are headed down an unclear road, uncertain one, one that does not look like success or any of your dream are reachable just abide in him.  He will teach you, show you and direct in you into success.
