What's your desire?

John 15:7 (NKJV)
"If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will
ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you."

(Amplified Bible)

If you live in Me [abide vitally united to Me] and My words remain
in you and continue to live in your hearts, ask whatever you will,
and it shall be done for you.

What Jesus is saying is: I am the Vine, you are the branches. When you're joined with me and I with you, the relation intimate and organic, the harvest is sure to be abundant. Separated, you can't produce a thing. Anyone who separates from me is deadwood, gathered up and thrown on the bonfire. But if you make yourselves at home with me and my words are at home in you, you can be sure that whatever you ask will be listened to and acted upon. This is how my Father shows who he is—when you produce grapes, when you mature as my disciples.

If I am correct? then the thing that you should
most desire to ask of God is His will for your life?
