‘The LORD your God… He will quiet you with His love.’
- In the midst of all the noise going on around us, we can know His peace. - Distress, fear and anxiety can rob us of our joy and peace. - The Lord wants to step into your situation and silence the storm. - His love can be a living reality and as a result we can know rest in our hearts.
Prayer: Lord, I invite You into my heart and life. I give you right of way, to come and still the storms that rage within my heart. May I be overwhelmed by Your love and not by what is going on around me. Amen.

The Blessing of Being Fruitful
September 20, 2019
FRUITFUL IN ANY CIRCUMSTANCE
But you may say, ‘If you knew my circumstances you would understand why I cannot produce fruit.’ Perhaps you have a boss who is destroying you. Perhaps you have a spouse who is undermining you. Perhaps you have to live in a situation that makes fruitfulness difficult. But God wants us to be fruitful where we are in whatever circumstances we may find ourselves. Joseph was an example of this.
Genesis 41:51-52 Joseph named his second boy Ephraim (meaning “Fruitful”—“For God has made me fruitful in this land of my slavery,” he said).
In prison, in slavery and in bondage, Joseph remained fruitful. You can be fruitful in any situation or circumstance.
THE BLESSING OF BEING FRUITFUL
God blessed mankind with the ability to be fruitful.
Genesis 1:27-28 So God created man in his own image, and God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply.
Within each of us is a blessing from God that will allow us to be fruitful. God instructed humanity to be fruitful, but not before He blessed them so that they could be fruitful. Perhaps we need to receive that blessing again so that we can be fruitful. Prayer: God bless us so that we can fruitful people.
