I am teaching you to discern the difference between a storm, which you have authority to deal with and my power causing a shaking. I will use both to reveal my goodness in your life but I am in the business of upskilling you to know how to respond when these things happen.
Remember my nature, I am always looking to what will ultimately do you good as I establish my Kingdom. I will stretch and prune and shake, I am a good gardener. I will prune, plant and growth you. Lean into me in all these processes.
“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.John 15:1-2 (NIV)
See, I have this day set you over the nations and over the kingdoms, To root out and to pull down, To destroy and to throw down, To build and to plant.Jeremiah 1:10 (NKJV)
