Fruitfulness matters, but the only road there is through consistent faithfulness. – J.D. Greear
Have you ever experienced a season of life where you felt Unable to accomplish the responsibility you’ve been given? Sure, from time to time, we all have. God has reminded me of how desperate I am for His abiding presence in my life.
You and I must daily surrender to Him in order to accomplish any task, forcing us to face my own limits, inadequacies and fears as a husband, wife, father, or mother.
This critical importance of full surrender and utter dependency on Him is for my good and is an illustration of John 15. Any fruitfulness in my life is completely hinged on an utter dependency in my relationship with Jesus Christ.
Fruitfulness comes from faithfully giving up getting up and going through the day, abiding with Him, and it is measured in 60 second moments every day!
I will bow down toward Your Holy Temple and will praise Your Name for Your unfailing love and Your faithfulness, for You have so exalted Your solemn decree that it surpasses Your fame. ~ Psalm 138:2
“God has a purpose for your pain, a reason for your struggles and a reward for your faithfulness. Don’t give up!” ~Unknown
“It’s Good to Proclaim Your Unfalling Love in the morning, Your Faithfulness in the Evening.” Psalm 92:2
- Our praises of God should be intelligent, declaring his varied attributes.
