Remain in Him - Joel Osteen Ministries daily devotional 17 April Monday
"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." (John 15:5)
Remain in Him
you ever thought about the relationship between the branch and the
vine? We don’t use these kinds of word pictures very much anymore, but
think about it—if the branch is not attached to the vine, it withers and
dies. The very life of the branch depends on being attached to the
vine. The same thing happens if we try to operate in this life without
Jesus. Without Him, we can do nothing. We are cut from our life source.
But when you remain in Him by daily connecting with Him through prayer,
worship and study of the Word, then your life will be fruitful. You’ll
walk in joy and blessing.
love that this verse says “much fruit,” which means you will have an
abundant harvest in your life. God doesn’t want you to just barely get
by. He wants to overwhelm you with His goodness. Remain in Him today.
Choose to make Him top priority, and you’ll see His hand of blessing
operating in every area of your life!
A Prayer for Today
Father, thank You for being my source of life. Thank You for Your hand
of blessing that is leading and guiding me. I choose to make You the
number one priority in my life. Let my heart hunger only for You today
in Jesus’ name. Amen."
