If Ye Abide

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

"If we are to live a true prayer life, with the love and the power and the experience of prayer marking it, there must be no question about the abiding....Be wholly occupied with Jesus. Sink the roots of your being in faith and love and obedience deep down into Him. Come away out of every other place to abide here. Give up everything for the inconceivable privilege of being a branch on earth of the glorified Son of God in heaven. Let Christ be first. Let Christ be all. Do not be occupied with the abiding - be occupied with Christ. He will hold you; He will keep you abiding in Him. He will abide in you." - Murray

Sometimes I keep striving to abide, when I simple must just focus on Christ.  Focus on Him and Who He is.  He will see that I'm abiding.
