Abide – Living In God’s Presence is a book for anyone who desires a deeper relationship with God. Pastor Deborah Oakley shares her journey of learning to live in God’s presence based on John 15 where Jesus says He is the True Vine and we are the branches. A branch is completely dependent on the vine. This means we are dependent on Jesus our true Vine. We live and dwell and make our home in His presence. We aren’t visitors, but permanent residents drawing life from Jesus. So when Satan attacks us, or life is difficult, we endure, remain and stand fast as we draw sustenance and strength from the Vine. We continue in worship, prayer, and the Word (which are the three keys to abiding in Christ) and we remain stable during the difficulties of life. This book will teach you how to defeat the little foxes that want to destroy your relationship of abiding in Christ. The little foxes are those hard-to-detect problems that quietly destroy our relationships. Left unchecked, these little foxes and issues inch their way into our lives, so we need to learn how to recognize them and exterminate them from our vineyard. Once we learn to abide we will discover benefits of abiding. These are fruitfulness, pruning, love, freedom, and obedience. When we live in God’s presence we experience these benefits and live a life of victory and abundance. This book will challenge you to overcome every hindrance to knowing God and to live in His presence.
