“Remain in Me, and I in you. Just as a branch is unable to produce fruit by itself unless it remains on the vine, so neither can you unless you remain in Me.”
John 15:4 HCSB
Did life throw you a curveball or two (or ten!) last year? What was your response? Did you duck tail and run? Self-medicate? Become bitter or angry?
If you said yes to any of the last three or could list any other unhealthy reactions, it’s time to come up with a game plan for 2020. Stress and challenges and change are all a part of life you and I can plan for and anticipate. When we remain in Christ we build a buffer that absorbs shock and steadies us in the turbulence. It doesn’t mean our world won’t shake, but we will have an anchor to keep us from turning completely over.
How do we “remain” or “abide” in Him?
*Spend tome reading and meditating on His Word EACH DAY. This means you think on what you’ve read throughout the day.
*Pray often and remain in an attitude of prayer, humbled before God, seeking Him and His wisdom.
*Memorize Scripture. You can do this on your own or with a partner. Pick a passage that is particularly meaningful to you at this season.
*Worship with other believers! We were not meant to go it alone.
*Take a step back from the people and activities that pull you away from Him in the way you speak, think or behave.
Today we hit the “reset” button and start fresh. Let’s do this with intention to remain in Him.🚦
