Abide in Him!

“I am the vine; you are the branches. The one who abides in Me while I abide in him produces much fruit...”

Did you know that God wants you to live in Him? He wants to be your source of life. He wants you to abide in Him and rely on Him for everything. He wants to be your source for strength, provision, hope and joy. Like the air you breathe, He wants you to rely on Him for your very existence.

The Power of Consistency

Daniel 6:1-28

We live in a noncommittal world, where the ability to persevere through difficulty is a rare character trait.

If a job is difficult or boring, it's all too common for people to think, Why not quit and find another one? When a marriage becomes stressful and unhappy, it's easier to give up or start over with a new mate. In fact, many couples live together without a marital commitment.

Sadly, this lack of consistency is evident even among believers. At the first sign of conflict or disagreement, some Christians hop to another church instead of remaining loyal to one local body of believers and working through their difficulties.

And in our personal spiritual walks, many of us struggle to maintain a consistent quiet time with the Lord. Exhaustion or the demands of the day cause us to let that time slide as we pursue the things of this world.

Daniel was a man of steadfast loyalty. Even the awareness that he could be killed didn't interfere with his practice of praying three times a day. Such devotion to the Lord was noted by others.

Jealous satraps and commissioners used Daniel's consistency to trap him, but the king believed it would be the key to his deliverance: "Your God whom you constantly serve will Himself deliver you" (v. 16).

The biblical descriptions of Daniel are impressive: he influenced nations and powerful leaders. But have you considered that the Lord was able to use him greatly because of his unwavering obedience and worship? Just imagine what God can do with you, if you likewise commit yourself to Him.

There is no wisdom nor understanding nor counsel against the LORD.

There is no wisdom nor understanding nor counsel against the LORD.
-- Proverbs 21:30

MWMW, no matter how fresh the start nor how great the plans we have made, if we do not walk with God, the coming year will not be a spiritual success. As we receive this gift of a new year, let''''s commit to serve the Lord. As we make plans for the coming days ahead, let''''s make sure that those plans are made based on the LORD''''s revealed will in Scripture and prayerful consideration of what our God wants us to accomplish.

God of the ages, my Father in heaven, thank you for being very near as we start on a new year. Please help us know your will each day. Bring the people into our lives who will help us love you more, serve you effectively, and bless others in meaningful ways. To you be all the honor and glory in what we do, think, and say in the days ahead. In Jesus'''' name w pray. Amen.
