Many Strands Challenge ~ Seeking God’s Wisdom for 2014 ~ Day 71

Seeking God's Wisdom - Day 71

Today’s Assignment ~ Make sure that you have your prayer journal with you as you complete each day’s reading.  You are going to want to keep track of the verses that are resonating with you, as you read.

1. If you have not already done so, answer the questions in this blog-post;

https://heisourstrongtower.wordpress.com/2013/09/22/many-strands-challenge-seeking-gods-wisdom-for-2014/

If you have answered them…review your answers prior to reading today’s assignment.

 

2. Say a prayer asking God to reveal Himself to you through His word.

 

3. Read John 12 – 15 and as you read, highlight verses that are speaking to your heart and reflect on these questions…

• What is the main point of this portion?

• What does God – Father, Son or Holy Spirit – reveal of himself?

• What insight am I given about myself and into my life situation? Is there an example of a warning to heed? A promise to claim?

• What does Christ require of me now, in thought, word or action?

A reflection on today’s reading…

“Remain in me, and I will remain in you. For a branch cannot produce fruit if it is severed from the vine, and you cannot be fruitful unless you remain in me.” John 15:4 (NLT) 

The JOY of My HEART: May 17, 2013

More Consistency

“Abide in Me, and I in you.”

John 15:4, NKJV

“The branch is totally, absolutely, completely dependent upon the Vine, not only for fruit, but for life. Whether because of pride or fear or some other reason, we as branches seem to struggle with being totally dependent on the Vine.

In what areas of your life are you acting independently of the Vine? I can usually determine these areas by just checking my prayer life. The items I have not prayed about-the people and problems, the relationships and responsibilities, the activities and attitudes, the schedules and stress, the entertainment and exercise, the pleasures and pastimes, the decisions and dreams, the desires and diets, anything and everything—are those areas of my life where I am not dependent upon Him. If my heart’s cry is for more of His fruitfulness, then one of the goals of my life needs to be more consistency in my dependency. Would you make this your goal, too?”

Blessings,

Anne Graham Lotz

 

I am the temple of the Lord and He does abide in me; but it only works when I remain in Him…it says so right in John 15:4.

Prayer has to be my default to achieve a right relationship with God.  I can’t remain in Him without prayer.  I am a sucker for a catch phrase; some of you might have noticed that about me.  God knows everything about me and He knows that a cute little turn of some words just makes things click for me and I am going to be stealing these words from Anne to use as I move forward…more words for my refrigerator…Yes, I think so!

“…then one of the goals of my life needs to be “more consistency in my dependency.”

You and I can do all things by remaining in Him!  This has to be out goal in all areas of this life…more consistency in our dependency on God!

Oaks Of Righteousness

Isaiah 61:1-3 "The spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has annointed me; He has sent me to bring good news to the oppressed, to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and release to the prisoners; to proclaim the year of the Lords's favor, and the day of vengeance of our God; and to comfort all who mourn; to provide for those who mourn in Zion -- to give them a garland instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the mantle of praise instead of a faint spirit. They will be called Oaks of Righteousness, the planting of the Lord, to display His glory.
