Do you feel like giving up? Do you hear messages that say you should? I’m finding life is a daily weeding & watering, it’s about perseverance! This, a perfect reminder. Listen up. Hear the voice of truth. Don’t give up! Take this little boy’s lead. In due time we will reap a harvest. (Gal 6:9)
What are your biggest weeds that try to choke the life out of you? Can you name them? Do you know? I can name one that wants to hang around for me. I keep thinking that I have gotten it by the root and then it pops up again. Doubt AKA fear. It’s a tough one tied to the root of second guessing. The more I pick up the watering can of God’s Word, the more I realize that I don’t have to second guess a thing. There is no second guessing my identity in Christ Jesus and there is no need to doubt His leading and His plans for me. He is all about growing us up into a new plant. We must receive His watering and embrace His touch. Let Him get to work in our hearts.
My weeds might look different than yours, but there’s no doubt, the Lord is all about sifting the soil and bringing a harvest. His greatest plans are to remove the doubts we might have about Him that invade and also the ones about ourselves. He is the gardener and He wants to bring forth big time fruit, beautiful fruit!!! There’s an adversary that wants to choke the life out of us, but we must see to it that we call him out on it and yank these weeds by the root. KEEP WEEDING, KEEP WATERING! Abundant life will spring up! XO
Jesus says: “I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener.
He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit,
(He yanks up every weed that doesn’t belong)
while every branch that does bear fruit He prunes so that it will be even more fruitful. (John 15:1-2)
