"You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, he may give it to you."

John 16:16

One of the most amazing verses to me is John 16:16. In today's verse, it tells us that Jesus chose us and that He also appointed us that we should go and bear much fruit. And, that that fruit should abide, should live. Think about that for a moment today. The fruit we bear as Christians should be living fruit that continues on.

This verse also tells us that because we are bearing fruit, what we ask in Jesus’ name, the Father will give us. If we ask anything according to his will, it will be done for us. We are on assignment from God and He is committed to providing all that is needed to fulfill our assignment in His power. Where God guides, He provides. As we obey His nudges, He commits Himself to meet our needs. How can you practice this abiding dependence and bring these truths into the lives around you?

Disciple's Prayer:

"Father, I come before you by the blood of Jesus and ask that you would prune me daily more and more so that I can grow and bear more and more fruit for your Kingdom in this world all the rest of the days of my life that you give me. Bless the works of my hands and the words of my mouth to please you and draw others to you today."

Prayer for the Unreached of the Day:

"Father, I come before you by the blood of Jesus and ask that you would bring believers to the Southern Muji today so that they may know, grow and bear fruit for your Kingdom. Bless the works of these Southern Muji as they come into your Kingdom with glad tidings and great joy for You alone, Jesus. Help them to worship You as the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Tear down any barriers to the gospel reaching the Southern Muji. In Jesus' name. Amen."
