If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.
This is one of the most powerful truths in the Bible. Think about what Jesus said here. To abide means to remain one with. We abide in Jesus when we become born again and follow after Him. If we do not deny Christ we remain one with Him. But His Word must also abide in us, or remain one with us. Another way to say this is the Word of Christ must prevail over us. God’s Word is a prevailing force in the earth for His Word created everything, therefore everything is subject to His Word.
When His Word prevails over us then what we speak is the Word of God, which will come to pass. For His Word to abide in us we must have our minds renewed to the Word of God. This is more than just head knowledge of the Word. It must prevail over our thought life so that we think like God’s Word, but a mind is not fully renewed until it has transformed how we live. His Word must also prevail over our actions as well.
When God’s Word is prevailing over our thoughts and we now see ourselves in Christ as a new creation, and that Word prevails over our actions as well, then His Word will prevail through us for there is nothing more powerful than the Word of God. Heaven and earth will pass away, but His Word will never pass away. Remain one with Jesus and let His Word prevail over you, becoming one with that Word, and you shall ask what you desire and it shall be done through the prevailing Word of God.
