Luke 15:4 “Remain in Me, and I in you.” Remain, stay, abide, survive, (to) last. These words reflect the power in the concept of this verse. When I am connected to my Jesus, He is connected to me. While I am waiting on Him, He is waiting with me.
A beautiful, old hymn says this very well: Abide with me, fast falls the eventide; The darkness deepens; Lord, with me abide. When other helpers fail, and comforts flee, Help of the helpless, O abide with me. I need Thy presence every passing hour; What but Thy grace can foil the tempter’s power? Who like Thyself my guide and stay can be? Through cloud and sunshine, O abide with me.
Stay with God…through dishes, dust, and laundry…and watch the Spirit show up. Stay with God…through hurts, losses, cruel words, and sadness of this world…and watch the Spirit show up. Stay with God…when there is not enough time to do it all…and watch the Spirit show up. Stay with God… Heavenly, glorious Father, I want to stay with You no matter what. Walk with me and teach me, guide me, forgive me, and make me more like You. Make me aware of the Spirit throughout this day. Keep me totally focused on You, my God and my King. I lift this prayer in Jesus name…Make it so!
