If you remain in me, and my words remain in you, you will ask whatever you desire, and it will be done for you.
Have you ever wondered how a tomato plant can provide so many delicious tomatoes, or why there are so many fragrant roses on one bush? It is because the stems holding the tomatoes or roses are connected to the main branch of the plant which is the offshoot of the plant’s root system. Thus, all the nutrients from the root and sunshine transferred to the actual tomato or roses travel from this main branch to all the offshoots. If they weren’t securely attached, there would be nothing for us to enjoy.
Likewise, you must remain firmly connected to Jesus through prayer and through His words of promise and instruction. In doing so, your life is a reflection of the ‘plant’ from which you stem—God, our maker and master, and Jesus our Savior.
When you remain firmly attached to Him, He will give you anything and will do everything to make you the happiest person in the whole world. He is so generous that His loving grace and blessings will be spilling over from you so you can share them with others. Will you stay connected to Jesus?
Pray: Father, help me to remain in Jesus, and His words of promise and instruction today and always. Help me accomplish my full potential in You. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.
