Abide

TODAY’S VERSE
I cry out to the LORD; I plead for the LORD’s mercy. I pour out my complaints before him and tell him all my troubles. When I am overwhelmed, you alone know the way I should turn.
Psalms 142:1-3 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Have you ever felt overwhelmed? When you do, what do you do? Do you cry out to God? Do you plead for Him to hear you, to have mercy? This is what David did. It is what we should do. David knew centuries before Christ’s famous words, “Abide in me and I in you!” what it was like to abide or remain in God. He would pour out his complaints to God, tell Him all his troubles, he would stay with God even when he was overwhelmed. He would abide with God. And God would show him the way he should turn. God abided with Him. This is what Jesus had to say, “I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.” Today, abide in Him, spend time with God and remain aware of His abiding presence.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, help me to be honest with You, to remain focused on You, to hear from You. I want to abide in You and have You abide in me.
AMEN

About Ronald

I am a Christian who deeply believes in God and the purposes He has put us on earth for. I started in ministry when I was 20 years old. I have been involved in both evangelism and compassion ministires. I deeply believe in our mission to help those in need. I believe however,that the church has missed our calling. We have not been effective in loving others as we would love ourselves. We have not been using our Spiritual Gifts to make a difference in this world. We have not mobilized to be the salt and light in the world. The goal of this web site is to help those interested to use their Spiritual Gifts in order to fulfill the mission Christ has given us to love the world.
