Abiding in the Vine

  • The Lord is calling you to a deeper walk with Him.

  • You are a child of God.

  • As you seek Him, He will fill you with His peace.

I have always been a man of prayer. Otherwise I would not be who I am or what I am today. I have sought the Lord, and He has opened up doors around the world. Still, I have known for some time that the Lord was calling me to a much deeper walk with Him. I knew He wanted a greater commitment to seek Him with all my being.

That decision has been made. I’m not turning back from it, for it is a sacred decision.

I am sharing my heart with you here because you are my partner and you have stood with me through thick and thin. I thank you with all my heart for your support, especially for your faithful prayers over the years. And I believe with all my being that Christ Jesus is going to visit us in a heavenly manner.

More than ever before, I know that He longs for our love and intimacy, and He deserves our absolute love and surrender. He is the lover of our souls, and He wants to be in the life of each believer.

I am convinced that life without Him is empty and meaningless. Life with our Lord Jesus is full, it is abundant, and it is joyful.

His Intimate Presence, a Holy Fire

At the moment when the Lord’s intimate presence becomes rich in our lives, He begins to bless us beyond measure. In fact, God tells us:

“They that seek the Lord shall not want any good thing” (Psalm 34:10).

When His presence becomes abundant, He brings total abundance into our lives.

I want you, my partner, to know that a holy fire is intensifying my soul’s desire to be with the Son of the living God. My commitment to serve Him is permanent and eternal.

I have said to the Lord many times,

“I do not want to finish wrong. I want to finish better than I started, closer to You than when I started, and much more intimate with You than when I started.”

Today, I can say without reservation that I want Him to be my greatest delight and His Word my greatest treasure. And I know that is your prayer, too, for when you love Him like that, you want to serve Him with all your being. You want to yield your heart and soul to Him daily, consistently.

Just as I have committed to seek and serve Him, I know that your love for Him is also growing more intense, deep, and eternal.
