I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples. - John 15:5,8
Spiritually speaking I cannot do anything that truly bears spiritual fruit without you and your word. But many times I try to run on my own wisdom, strength and opinions. I can tell that when I am in your word daily learning and growing how I am ready to face each situation with spiritual insight. I just seem to "get it" from the beginning. I don't struggle so much in confusion and can more easily do the right thing even when it's hard. Help me to remember to feed on your word this week so I am healthy and fruitful every moment.
