Jeremiah 17:7-8 (NLT) But blessed are those who trust in the Lord and have made the Lord their hope and confidence. They are like trees planted along a riverbank, with roots that reach deep into the water. Such trees are not bothered by the heat or worried by long months of drought. Their leaves stay green, and they never stop producing fruit.
Do you desire to always produce fruit? Seeing the lost saved, seeing people miraculously healed, seeing an abundance of blessings come through as provision for the vision God has called you to…. These fruits shall never stop for those who trust in Jesus and place their hope in Him alone.
When the pressure is turned up, you will not be bothered. When you experience a dry season you will remain healthy and strong and continue to produce good fruit.
The person who fully trusts in Jesus has been deeply rooted in the Holy Spirit and no matter how strong the winds become, you will not be moved by difficult circumstances. If you are led by your emotions and you tend to worry over everything then you are not deeply rooted in Christ. When plants are first put into the ground they can easily be transferred to a new location because their roots have yet to dig deep in the ground. Wherever God calls you, sink in deep and become rooted where He has placed you. It’s not about being comfortable but it is about your obedience. A simple yes to God can change the course of history for multitudes. Imagine if Billy Graham would have said no to God, how many millions would still be lost? I wonder how many people have said no, and God is looking for someone who is unashamed of The Gospel, to carry the message to all the earth.
What is holding you back from complete surrender today? Evaluate your heart and ask yourself the true motive behind all that you do in a day. Are you producing any fruit? What small adjustments can you make today that will change your future and enhance your relationship with Christ? Selah.
Proverbs 16:2-3 (NLT) People may be pure in their own eyes, but the Lord examines their motives. Commit your actions to the Lord, and your plans will succeed.
Jeremiah 17:9-10 (NLT) “The human heart is the most deceitful of all things, and desperately wicked. Who really knows how bad it is? But I, the Lord, search all hearts and examine secret motives. I give all people their due rewards, according to what their actions deserve.”
Colossians 1:9b-10 (NLT) We ask God to give you complete knowledge of his will and to give you spiritual wisdom and understanding. Then the way you live will always honor and please the Lord, and your lives will produce every kind of good fruit. All the while, you will grow as you learn to know God better and better.
