So earlier this week I was reading in John 15 & something really stuck out to me. I encourage you to go read the chapter if you haven’t. A lot of times we start working on something, whether it’s because God told us to, or just because it’s something we want to accomplish & then due to discouragement, comparing ourselves, or maybe it being difficult we stop. I tend to get discouraged sometimes when it comes to blogging for various reasons, but I know it’s something God has asked me to do it’s also something I love. I read this verse & everything really changed for me.
Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing.
If we are in Jesus & if our motive is right we won’t fail. That dream in your heart, go after it. We have Jesus on our side cheering us on encouraging us that if we remain in Him we will produce much fruit. It doesn’t mean it won’t be hard, or that we won’t get discouraged, or even that’ll it happen quickly, but that eventually, it’ll work out. My Mom always tells me you do your best & God will do the rest. So if you’ve been working on something, dreaming about something don’t be discouraged, if you’re in Him you’ll succeed. Sometimes we don’t see what is being done behind the scenes so even if it’s hard, keep going. Jesus & a cloud of witnesses are there cheering you on wanting you to succeed.
But if you remain in me and my words remain in you, you may ask for anything you want, and it will be granted!
A final word: Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.
