Thought for the Day II

"God gave us His Word to prepare us to meet Him and through the Word of God we come to know God. But once we come to know God He abides is us. John 14:23 says, "Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love Me, He will keep My Words: and My Father will love him, and We will come unto him, and make our abode with Him." Abode is literally, 'place of residence, a staying.' Now, to those who have been born again God's Word reveals to us God, who abides in us. God reveals to us how God is going to live in us and through us.

I don't think you have got this. God speaks to you in His Word, about what He is going to do through you, by His Word. Catch this: What God has spoken in His Word, about what God has purposed for your life, He will do, in you and through you, by His Word. In other words, God has already spoken to you, what God is going to do in you and through you.

What God has purposed you for, God is preparing you for. What God has prepared you for, God will participate in. By abiding in you, God ensures success in what God has prepared you for."
