The Pruning Process - Joel Osteen Ministries daily devotional 2 June Friday
"He cuts off every branch in
me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he
prunes so that it will be even more fruitful." (John 15:2, NIV)
The Pruning Process
life, we all go through a pruning process. God will prune our lives so
that we can bear much fruit. To “prune” means something is cut away,
something is removed. In other words, maybe a good friend that you
counted on moved to another city. Maybe a business shut down that you
were connected to, or a relationship went a different direction.
God knows what you need in your life in order to grow and flourish.
Sometimes when things happen that we don’t understand, we have to just
trust that He is working behind the scenes preparing you for increase,
preparing you to go to another level. Don’t put a question mark where
God has placed a period.
you’re going through transition, don’t get bitter. Don’t get down and
think it’s the end. Don’t start thinking that you’re a failure. Have the
attitude, “God, I let this go knowing that it was only a temporary
provision, and what You have in my future will be greater than what I’m
letting go of.” If you will accept the change and stay in faith, God
will open new doors. He will bring new opportunities, new friendships,
and take you to another level of His glory!
A Prayer for Today
thank You for loving me enough to work in my life. Today I release the
things I don’t understand into Your hands. I believe that You are
working behind the scenes on my behalf. I believe that You have good
things in store for my future. I choose to wait on You and trust You now
and forevermore in Jesus’ name. Amen."
