    They heard Yahweh God's voice walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and the man and his wife hid themselves from the presence of Yahweh God among the trees of the garden. Yahweh God called to the man, and said to him, "Where are you?" The man said, "I heard your voice in the garden, and I wa...

Vineyards

  • For the Kingdom of Heaven is like a man who was the master of a household, who went out early in the morning to hire laborers for his vineyard. Matthew 20:1 WEB

    Vineyards that produce some of the best wine, limit the water to the plants in order to make their roots go deeper into the soil. The resulting grapes are small, but intensely flavorful. The crop yields less, but the fruit quality is superior. This is why some areas become known for their wine, their perfect climate and terroir.

    The grape vines that have had to drill deep into the earth for water become heartier and more stable. Their supporting root system runs deep, and they are not easily uprooted by winds. If it does not rain for a while, they are already prepared for it. They remain stable through out the seasons because of their deep roots.

    Vines that have been flooded with all the water they could want, sit right on top of the ground with a shallow root system. A few days without water and they will begin to dry up. A light wind or tug can uproot the plant entirely. The fruit that they produce can be large, but often bland and watery.

    The Lord knows how to tend His vineyard, and quality is more important to Him than quantity. He provides what we need to bring forth the best fruit in our lives. That means that He is not going to flood us with all that we desire, as that would make us produce shallow roots and we would wither at the first sign of adversity.

    It is not always easy. Sometimes we feel like we do not have enough, but there is a purpose behind it. You may feel that you are in a spiritual draught today and think that God has forgotten you, but He has not. He knows what is needed to produce the correct fruit and you already have it in your life. Stop worrying about what you don't have and begin to align your priorities, with His.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father You know my needs before I ask them. I trust You to provide for me and cause me to prosper in what You give me to do. Help me bring forth spiritual fruit in my life, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.
