“For he will be (nourished) like a tree planted by the waters, that spreads out its roots by the river…….”John 15:5 (AMP)
I awake this morning giving You the glory, honour and praise. I ask You for forgiveness of sins of the mind, thoughts and deeds and lift You up because of who You are. If we refuse to praise You, the mountains, hills and trees will burst forth in praise and worship. Therefore, I will continually lift up my hands.
Today, I acknowledge You as the Gardener, Your Son Jesus Christ as the True Vine and myself as a branch. My survival depends on being attached to the True Vine. He is the source that guides, protects. strengthens, provides truth, abundance and blessings. Please bless me as I attempt to always cleave to Him. Your Word says, they that worship Him must do so in spirit and in truth. May You be pleased as I am nourished by Your Holy Spirit, so will bear fruit because I am considered a healthy branch. Help me as I pull on Your Son as a source of life. As I meditate on Your Word day and night, let it feed me and give me the all I need to face each day, knowing You will go before me. I will bear fruit, as I am called to do, by spreading the Good News. Prune me as often and as frequently as necessary, so I will be effective. I want to be a vessel that is ever-changing, to improve and go from glory to glory. I am aware of the times ahead and need Your presence 24/7 365. Help me as I spread the truth with others, the knowledge of Your blessings and the promises of eternal life. May the truth not fall on deaf ears and the hearer believe and understand. Blessings come in many forms, which include, but are not limited to financial gains. Renew my mind, so I’ll understand the blessings available to me and seek them out. I know that within You I live, move and have my being. I look to Your light, so it will continue to go before me like the dawn. You know the plans You have for me…plans for a future, a hope and an expected end. If I seek You with my whole heart I shall find You. Away from You there is nothing that I can do. As part of the essential assignment I’m on, the High Calling received, may I excel and have a positive outcome for Your Kingdom.
“Blessed (with spiritual security) is the man who believes and trusts in and relies on the LORD and whose hope and confident expectation is the LORD. “For he will be (nourished) like a tree planted by the waters, that spreads out its roots by the river; and will not fear the heat when it comes; But its leaves will be green and moist. And it will not be anxious and concerned in a year of drought nor stop bearing fruit.”Jeremiah 17:7-8 (AMP)
“I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful. You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you. Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.John 15:1-4 (New International Version)
To You who is able to keep me from falling and to present me before His glorious presence without fault and with great joy – to You who is the only God, my Saviour, be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Yeshua The Anointed One, my Lord, before all ages, now and forevermore! Amen. Jude 1:24-25
