Abide.

Do you ever find yourself thinking, I’ll be able to spend more time with God after my kids grow up, or when this week is over. Then everything will be alright; I’ll be able to get back to God. Right now, there’s just too much going on.

Ask yourself: When was Jesus ever apart from God? Did Jesus choose His own circumstances? Or did He go where God sent Him?

When do we begin to abide? Live in? Remain?

At first it may take effort, some discipline on our part; making an effort to spend time in His Word, setting our hearts and minds on Him. Soon, it will become so much the way of our life that we will abide in Him unconsciously.

Abide. Period. It’s a good thing.

He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. Ps. 91:1
