Fruitfulness
by   
11/24/2008 / Devotionals


John 15: 1 & 2
I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.

I've found these two verses very thought provoking. A few months ago, I was prompted in the spirit to devote a whole month to His Word and prayer. I needed to revaluate my time and priorities and I could only do this with His help. These words from Johnís gospel often came up, even when I wasn't actually meditating on them.

Pruning is often the hardest thing to deal with in the Christian walk; I know it is for me. It's amazing though how at times it seems like a continual trimming, and sometimes it hurts. When areas of our lives no longer produce fruit, when a daily task no longer seems meaningful or a love for a mere diversion becomes a total time waster, we need to evaluate.

And evaluate I did. With Godís guidance, pruning and direction, my love for writing became prioritised and finally found direction. A renewed love for an old hobby replaced a diversion that now complements my writing. There wasnít anything wrong with my diversion, I just needed to prioritise with Godís guidance.

Father, when you take me through times of pruning away the dead areas of my life, give me the strength to accept your changes. I know your changes in my life are always because you love me and because you have plans for my life that can only be fulfilled when I trust you and allow your pruning to take place. Amen.
