John 15:10 – “If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love.”
Prayer helps us to learn to trust the wisdom, power, and love of our Heavenly Father. He knows our precise need and knows ways to meet it much beyond our imagination and planning. We may think that we may need certain things which can lead to happiness. But it may often lead to our ruin. The things that we think and do will ruin us. But if we believe what the Father tells us and surrender ourselves into His strong arms, then it will bring sure joy and deliverance. If there are things that you need to repent and confess, ask His forgiveness today. Jesus Himself said that to abide in His love means that we need to keep His commandments. You will lose nothing if you obey Him out of a loving heart. Obey God and leave all the consequences to Him. Can you obey Him in everything that He says?
