John 15:1-8 (NKJV)
The True Vine
15 “I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. 2 Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away;[a] and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit. 3 You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you. 4 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.
5 “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. 6 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. 7 If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will[b] ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you. 8 By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples.
Father we thank You for the desires that You have placed in our hearts. Forgive us for limiting Your blessing by putting You in the box of our own imaginations. We want Your best. We want to produce more fruit. Lead us to the path that will collide with our purpose according to Your will. Help us see the bigger picture. We intentionally wait for Your instructions and move forward by faith. Keep us in Your perfect will as we put our trust in You. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen!
