John 15:16 (AMPC)
You have not chosen Me, but I have chosen you and I have appointed you [I have planted you], that you might go and bear fruit and keep on bearing, and that your fruit may be lasting [that it may remain, abide], so that whatever you ask the Father in My Name [as presenting all that I AM], He may give it to you.

Remember this today: You are chosen, you are appointed, you are positioned, and you are called to what?…

Bear fruit.

As you go about bearing fruit, multiplying and producing a harvest wherever you go, He will give you what you ask in His name.

So be a fruit bearer. Be productive for the Lord and leave behind an orchard of juicy, ripe fruit.

God has the best gifts for YOU!

Genesis 3:1-6 (MSG)

“The serpent was clever, more clever than any wild animal God had made. He spoke to the Woman: “Do I understand that God told you not to eat from any tree in the garden?” The Woman said to the serpent, “Not at all. We can eat from the trees in the garden. It’s only about the tree in the middle of the garden that God said, ‘Don’t eat from it; don’t even touch it or you’ll die.'”

The serpent told the Woman, “You won’t die. God knows that the moment you eat from that tree, you’ll see what’s really going on. You’ll be just like God, knowing everything, ranging all the way from good to evil.” When the Woman saw that the tree looked like good eating and realized what she would get out of it—she’d know everything!—she took and ate the fruit and then gave some to her husband, and he ate.”

Why is it that we often want what we can’t have? God has made available to you every other blessing in the garden, every tree you lay eyes on.

But will you throw it all away to have that one thing that God has said “no” to? Is it pornography? gossip? overeating? or that seductive TV show? Or has He simply said “not yet”, but you want it now?

Is it a relationship? marriage? or a lavish car? You know eating of this would be disobedience. “But it looks so good”, we ponder in our heart.

“If I could just get a bit closer and get a good look, a touch, or even a sniff.” And then before we know it we have been lured into partaking of the very thing God warned us not to touch.

‘The Lord will withhold no good thing from those who do what is right.’ Psalm 84:11b NLT

You might think God is withholding something from you but if God withholds no GOOD thing, what you think is a good thing is either not good for you at all or not good for you at this time. God knows it is not good so He is withholding it.

God delights in giving good gifts to His children. We need to stop looking at the one tree we can’t have and start thanking God for all the fruit trees we do have!

After the pruning…(prophetic word: video 5)

Come to the Gardener

John 15:1-4 (NLT)

‘“I am the true grapevine, and my father is the gardener. He cuts off every branch of mine that doesn’t produce fruit, and He prunes the branches that do bear fruit so they will produce even more. You have already been pruned and purified by the message I have given you. Remain in me, and I will remain in you. For a branch cannot produce fruit if it is severed from the vine, and you cannot be fruitful unless you remain in Me”’.

God wants to pluck away at the unfruitful areas of your life. He will prune off those unfruitful relationships, time wasting procedures and areas where He is not the centre.

The essence here is to remain in the Lord. All your nutrients and nourishment will come through the vine, which represents Jesus. As you seek to ‘remain in Him’ you will be transformed more and more into His likeness.

This requires constant communion with Him through prayer, worship, fellowship and meditation in His Word. All of these actions draws you closer to God.

Let’s identify unfruitful areas in our lives and allow Him access to prune and refine us.
