BIBLE READING|PSALM 92:12-14
God commanded all creeping, flying and swimming creatures to be fruitful and it was so. It is the desire of God that we are blessed in all areas of our lives. God hates stagnancy with a passion. Jesus Christ, being the True Vine, is ever ready to spring out branches that shall continuously produce more fruits.
John 15:1-5 – “I am the true vine, and My Father is the vine dresser. Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit. You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you. Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me. I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.
God is the only source of complete fruitfulness. At the creation of man, God gave a fivefold blessing: be fruitful, multiply, replenish, subdue and have dominion. This is an all-round declaration of increase for all true children of God. Fruitfulness is not only measured in material possessions but in all other aspects of our lives – soul and spirit – 3 Jn.2. Abiding in the Vine is a critical condition demanded from us all to activate the provisions of fruitfulness.
God has made every provision for us to be fruitful, and therefore we cannot do otherwise.
PRAYER: Lord prune me, and make me fruitful in your vineyard.
