JESUS SAID, “Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. I am the vine,ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.”(John 15:4-5). When I don’t take time to pray and I am in a hurry and not in the Spirit, I make mistakes, things don’t
work out so easy. Like the Poem;
I got up early one morning,
And rushed right into the day;
I had so much to accomplish,
I didn’t have time to pray.
Problems just tumbled about me,
And heavier came each task.
“Why doesn’t God help me?” I wondered.
He answered, “You didn’t ask.”
I tried to come into God’s presence;
I used all my keys at the lock.
God gently and lovingly chided,
“Why, child, you didn’t knock.”
I wanted to see joy and beauty,
But the day toiled on gray and bleak.
I wondered why God didn’t show me.
He said, “You didn’t seek.”
I woke up early this morning,
And paused before entering the day.
I had so much to accomplish
That I had to take time to pray.
The Lord wants us to acknowledge him and put our trust in him. “Trust in the
Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.”(Proverbs 3:5-6). Jesus said; “And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint;”(Luke 18:1). “Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.”(Psalms 46:10). We need to listen to the Lord and get still and quite our own spirit down. “He that hath no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down, and without walls.”(Proverbs 25:28). The Lord is always helping me out of the jams I get myself into and turning out things for good, but maybe it could have been easier if I had come to him first.”Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.” (Matthew 11:28-29). And for your sake be thankful and give him credit for every good thing that happens, and that you accomplish.
For with out him we can do nothing!
Say this prayer to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I believe you died on the cross for my sins ,and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.
