This is what the LORD says to you: ‘Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours, but God's.’

- When we are facing challenges and insecurity, we can get discouraged.
- Discouragement robs us of our joy and of our peace.
- Today, the Lord wants to say to you: ‘Do not be discouraged!’
- The Lord will fight for you, because He loves and cares for you.

Prayer: Lord, thank You for the strength, joy and peace You bring into my life. I will not allow a spirit of discouragement to torment me, because You have told me not to fear or be discouraged. Amen.

Fruitful Throughout Our Lives

September 27, 2019

FRUITFULNESS AND BEING PRUNED

It is clear that the vine also gets pruned. Fruitful vines need to be pruned to stay fruitful. It seems that as we go along we pick up baggage. Perhaps pride or a sense of self-fulfillment. This needs to be constantly removed so that whatever growth or fruit there is, is the result of what God has done and not because of anything that we have done.

John 15:1-2 I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener.  He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful.

Pruning is an easy thing and it happens to the fruitful. But there is a purpose – so that we will be even more fruitful! That is God’s plan for you and me.

FRUITFUL THROUGHOUT OUR LIVES

We can be fruitful throughout our lives. Society tells us that we have a fruitful period, usually when we are young, and then we need to retire. It is not like this with God. If we are connected to God then we can be fruitful at every stage of life or in every circumstance of life.

Psalm 92:12-15 But the godly shall flourish like palm trees and grow tall as the cedars of Lebanon. For they are transplanted into the Lord’s own garden and are under his personal care. Even in old age they will still produce fruit and be vital and green. This honors the Lord and exhibits his faithful care. He is my shelter. There is nothing but goodness in him!

Being fruitful honours God. Being fruitful is important to God.
