    I have said these things to you while still living with you. But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things, and will remind you of all that I said to you. Peace I leave with you. My peace I give to you; not as the world gives, I give to you. Don'...

Vines and Branches

  • Remain in me, and I in you. As the branch can't bear fruit by itself, unless it remains in the vine, so neither can you, unless you remain in me. I am the vine. You are the branches. He who remains in me, and I in him, the same bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing. John 15:4'5 WEB.

    The ministry of Jesus, from the first recorded miracle of turning water into wine at the wedding in Cana of Galilee until His resurrection, spanned about three and a half years. During that time, Jesus changed the world that He lived in. He took away the sins of the universe, and if we let Him, He will take away ours today.

    We labor each day for so many things. Some are necessary, some are not. Yet, if we get in tune with Him, we will accomplish much more, and it will be more fulfilling as well.

    Think of Mary sitting at the feet of Jesus while Martha labored in the kitchen. Sometimes we just need to stop and listen. Though too often, we are like Martha. Working hard at making sandwiches no one ordered and then getting tired and frustrated when they don't seem to appreciate it.

    Jesus is the Vine, and we are the branches. Our connection with Him makes our lives bear fruit. I find that when I spend some quiet time with the Lord before I start my day. Pray for a few minutes, read a little scripture, and listen, that my day goes so much better. It reminds me of why I am doing this and that I am not just struggling alone in this life. After a few minutes alone with the Lord, I am much stronger.

    Always include the Lord in Your day. Remember that without Him, you can do nothing of lasting value. Taking just ten minutes to stop, pray, and listen can change your life, those around you, and the world itself.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, please strengthen me today, and cover me with Your presence. Draw my heart to You, Lord, and let me see through Your eyes. Use me, and make my life count for Your kingdom. In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen!

    Note: "This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.' (John 5:14) ~ If you have a prayer need, we are here for you! We and the prayer team are ready to lift you up at our private prayer page: RHM Prayer Network

Yes, I find spending time with The Lord does change my dealings with the day easier. Although I have to say, Victory in Jesus quite often through the day, due to health issues. IT works and gets me through the day.
