When Jesus told us to abide in Him and in His Word, He used the Greek word meno, which is translated in Strong’s concordance as “continue, dwell, endure, be present, remain, stand, tarry.” We are to spend time with God – continually. When we do, we get in the flow of His plan for our day.

We are not told just to wish for everything to work together; we are told to seek God for a fresh word each day. If we seek Him early in the day, we will have “a word in due season” to share with others (see Proverbs 15:23). We can succeed at what God calls us to do, if we listen for His instructions. He has said, “If you seek Me early and diligently, you will find me” (see Proverbs 8:17).
