A YEAR IN PRAYER    "Using God's Word to pray"

Where do you go to seek the truth; is it in vain philosophies, foolish theories, religious traditions, or in the word of God?

Are you a branch connected to Christ, The Truth, and do you bear fruit worthy of the Lord?

Has God, by His grace, granted you repentance so that you may know the truth?

 

DAY # 215

TODAY’S REQUEST:

TRUSTING IN GOD - OUR LORD JESUS SAID:

" IF YOU ABIDE IN MY WORD, YOU WILL BE MY DISCIPLES INDEED.

AND YOU SHALL KNOW THE TRUTH, AND THE TRUTH SHALL MAKE YOU FREE. "

John 8:31 Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, "If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. 32 "And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."
John 18:37 Pilate therefore said to Him, "Are You a king then?" Jesus answered, "You say rightly that I am a king. For this cause I was born, and for this cause I have come into the world, that I should bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice."
2 John 1: 1-4 THE ELDER, To the elect lady and her children, whom I love in truth, and not only I, but also all those who have known the truth, 2 because of the truth which abides in us and will be with us forever: 3 Grace, mercy, and peace will be with you from God the Father and from the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of the Father, in truth and love. 4 I rejoiced greatly that I have found some of your children walking in truth, as we received commandment from the Father.
1 John 2:23 Whoever denies the Son does not have the Father either; he who acknowledges the Son has the Father also. 24 Therefore let that abide in you which you heard from the beginning. If what you heard from the beginning abides in you, you also will abide in the Son and in the Father.
Psalms 130:5 I wait for the LORD, my soul waits, And in His word I do hope.

HOW DO THE SCRIPTURES TELL US TO EXPRESS THIS REQUEST?

ABIDING IN OUR LORD, FOR HE IS THE TRUTH THAT SHALL MAKE US FREE

John 15:4 "Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me.
John 15:6 "If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned. 7 "If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.
John 15:9 "As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My love. 10 "If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love.
2 Timothy 2:23-26 But avoid foolish and ignorant disputes, knowing that they generate strife. 24 And a servant of the Lord must not quarrel but be gentle to all, able to teach, patient, 25 in humility correcting those who are in opposition, if God perhaps will grant them repentance, so that they may know the truth, 26 and that they may come to their senses and escape the snare of the devil, having been taken captive by him to do his will.
