By this we know that we abide in Him, and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit. 1 John 4:13 New King James Version
abide: to remain stable or fixed in a state, to continue in a place Merriam Webster Dictionary
The only way to remain stable in your relationship with Jehovah is by the power of the Holy Spirit. In order to continue with this relationship is to be obedient to the Holy Spirit. So when He says do this or do not do that it is order to keep our relationship fixed on Jesus. We must continue our walk with Him on a daily basis.
If you stray from the Holy Spirits guidance you set yourself up for control by the devil. Most times that does not occur all at once. It is a slow process that happens many times without the Christian even aware of it.
Prayer: Please Jehovah Shammah (the Lord is present) bless me to always be aware of your guidance and obedient to it so that I am blessed to stay in Your life giving place. I humbly request this in the name of He who always walked in harmony with You Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day
