If ye Abide in Me

Updated on February 12, 2012

If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. John 15:7

Do you have the kind of faith that when you ask God for something you know it is done? This is the kind of faith I am striving for. Some people might think that they will ask for a million dollars and it will be done. Well, I don't agree with the polluted prosperity teaching that is still going around, but I do believe that the scriptures are true. If you were to ask for a million dollars just to have it obviously your heart is not in the right spot and you are probably not abiding in Christ.

I am not saying that Christians are never blessed with finances. What I am saying is that when we abide in Christ we can ask what we will and it shall be done unto us. This scripture is full of power! Here are the definitions of the word abide.


Definition of ABIDE (from Merriam-Webster Dictionary)

transitive verb 1: to wait for : await 2 a : to endure without yielding : withstand b : to bear patiently : tolerate <cannot abide such bigots> 3: to accept without objection <will abide your decision> intransitive verb 1: to remain stable or fixed in a state 2: to continue in a place : sojourn — abid·er noun — abide by 1 : to conform to <abide by the rules> 2 : to acquiesce in <will abide by your decision>

Synonyms: 1stay, dwell, hang around, remain, stick around, tarry

Antonyms: bail, bail out, bug out, buzz (off), clear off [chiefly British], clear out, cut out, depart, exit, get off, go, go off, leave, move, pack (up or off), peel off, pike (out or off), pull out, push off, push on, quit, shove (off), take off, vamoose, walk out

Wait on the LORD: be of good courage , and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait , I say, on the LORD. Psalm 27:14

Waiting on the Lord is definitely an example of abiding in Christ. Dear Heavenly Father, I pray that we as Christians can abide in you and you in us. I pray that you will give us the faith and courage we need to be able to remain in you. Keep us from temptation and deliver us from evil. Thank you for your word and all your blessings you provide. In Jesus' Name Amen.

      I agree that we should not ask God for money itself. If we have money problem, we can ask the Lord on how to solve the problem.

      There's a big difference between what seems to be "everyday" Christianity and True Christianity--that of taking up our cross and following, that of abiding. Thanks for distinguishing between the two, Sky!

      Finding your spiritual freedom is the best natural high you will ever feel. When you do something good even if it is some small positive gesture you will feel that natural warmth or high within. You are going in a good direction keep up the good word in your writing!
