The True Vine
“I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit. You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you. Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me.
“I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing. If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned. If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you. By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples.
When we acknowledge the Lord as the one who helps us accomplish everything, He gets the glory and honor. Apart from the Lord we can do nothing. We must stay connected to the vine! Then we can bear much fruit in our lives. People will know Christ by the fruit we bear.
The eternal God is your refuge,
And underneath are the everlasting arms;
He will thrust out the enemy from before you,
And will say, ‘Destroy!’
Then Israel shall dwell in safety,
The fountain of Jacob alone,
In a land of grain and new wine;
His heavens shall also drop dew.
Happy are you, O Israel!
Who is like you, a people saved by the Lord,
The shield of your help
And the sword of your majesty!
Your enemies shall submit to you,
And you shall tread down their high places.”
God is our refuge! Our power comes from the Lord. He will destroy the enemy! We are saved by the Lord! Receive His power today. Trust in our heavenly Father!
Is this not the word that we told you in Egypt, saying, ‘Let us alone that we may serve the Egyptians’? For it would have been better for us to serve the Egyptians than that we should die in the wilderness.”
And Moses said to the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which He will accomplish for you today. For the Egyptians whom you see today, you shall see again no more forever. The Lord will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace.”
And the Lord said to Moses, “Why do you cry to Me? Tell the children of Israel to go forward. But lift up your rod, and stretch out your hand over the sea and divide it. And the children of Israel shall go on dry ground through the midst of the sea.
It takes courage to stand still and see what the Lord is doing. When we don't see any result immediate or long term we must have courage to "Be" still and continue in prayer and reading the Word, Bible. The Lord is always at work for us and through us if we stand strong in faith. The Egyptians we afraid and wanted to run NOT wait and have courage for the Lord to bring miraculous wonders to them. We must have courage, stand still for the glory of the Lord to appear!
That I may live and keep Your word.
Open my eyes, that I may see
Wondrous things from Your law.
I am a stranger in the earth;
Do not hide Your commandments from me.
My soul breaks with longing
For Your judgments at all times.
You rebuke the proud—the cursed,
Who stray from Your commandments.
Remove from me reproach and contempt,
For I have kept Your testimonies.
Lord I pray these words over every believer that we will keep your Word and you will deal bountifully with us. Abundantly overflowing with your mercy and your grace. Holy Spirit that we will KEEP your Word!
And in that day you will say:
“O Lord, I will praise You;
Though You were angry with me,
Your anger is turned away, and You comfort me.
Behold, God is my salvation,
I will trust and not be afraid;
‘For Yah, the Lord, is my strength and song;
He also has become my salvation.’”
Therefore with joy you will draw water
From the wells of salvation.
I am so thankful even when God is angry with me He is My Salvation! Praise the Lord He comforts me! I WILL trust in Him! Will you trust Him today?
1 Do not fret because of evildoers,
Nor be envious of the workers of iniquity.
2 For they shall soon be cut down like the grass,
And wither as the green herb.
3 Trust in the Lord, and do good;
Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness.
4 Delight yourself also in the Lord,
And He shall give you the desires of your heart.
5 Commit your way to the Lord,
Trust also in Him,
And He shall bring it to pass.
6 He shall bring forth your righteousness as the light,
And your justice as the noonday.
7 Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him;
Do not fret because of him who prospers in his way,
Because of the man who brings wicked schemes to pass.
8 Cease from anger, and forsake wrath;
Do not fret--it only causes harm.
9 For evildoers shall be cut off;
But those who wait on the Lord,
They shall inherit the earth.
10 For yet a little while and the wicked shall be no more;
Indeed, you will look carefully for his place,
But it shall be no more.
11 But the meek shall inherit the earth,
And shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.
I am strengthened by your Word Lord. You not only hold me up but you care so deeply for me. Thank you God! Your word gives me many reminders of how great and awesome you are!
I Am Coming Quickly
He who testifies to these things says, “Surely I am coming quickly.”
Jesus is coming quickly every time we call upon His name. In Case of Emergency call upon the name of JESUS! JESUS! JEUS!
For in the time of trouble
He shall hide me in His pavilion;
In the secret place of His tabernacle
He shall hide me;
He shall set me high upon a rock.
The name of the Lord is a strong tower;
The righteous run to it and are safe.
Be in the will of God. Be in His presence! He will hide you in a safe place! #incaseofemergency #beinthewillofGod
Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’
A New Year dawns and we can walk in "fear" or "faith. 365 times in the Bible the Lord tells us "FEAR NOT"! We must not be afraid of trials or tribulation but have FAITH in God! He is the overcomer and greater is He in me and you than He in the world.
