"If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you" (John 15:7).

That word "abide" is so important. When Jesus told us to obey His commandments and keep His Word, He wasn't just telling us to follow a bunch of religious rules and regulations.

He was telling us to allow His Word - which is a living thing! - to make its home within us. He was telling us to spend time with it, to meditate on it, to fill our minds and our mouths with it and to let it guide our every action.

The Apostle Paul put it this way, "Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly" (Col. 3:16). Most believers don't have any idea what that means. That's one of the reasons they're so short on power.

Oral Roberts once said that when the Word is really abiding in you, when it's alive and producing like it should, you can hear it. You know what it's like when you get a song on your mind and you just keep hearing it over and over inside you? Well, when you start abiding in the Word, you're probably going to hear it in much that same way.

Many times I've been in desperate situations, wondering what I was going to do, when suddenly I'd hear a scripture down on the inside of me. Suddenly I'd know exactly what the answer to my situation was. I'd be delivered by the Word of God that was dwelling in me.

So invite the Holy Spirit to go to work on your behalf. Just keep telling Him, "Whatever You bring to my remembrance from the Word is exactly what I'm going to act on. I'm going to be obedient to every command of Jesus that You bring to mind."

Make a quality decision to abide in the Word. You'll soon discover that the Word is abiding in you.
