The Vine and the Branches

I am the true vine, and my Father is the gradener. He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while 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. You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you. Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself. it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me. I am the vine, you are the branchers. If you remain in me I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. if you do not remain in me, you are like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned. If you remain in me and my words remain in you ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples. As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you Now remain in my love. If you keep my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commands and remain in his love. I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete. My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. You are my friends if you do what I command. I no longer call you servants, because servants do not know their master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you. You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit-fruit that will last-and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you. This is my command: Love each other.
John 15:1-17

Treasure within you

Someting inside of you has been locked up. God wants to unlock it. He knows what gifts and abilities and dreams He has put in you. He knows how to touch them and how to bring them out. When you get beyond your low self-esteem and stop comparing yourself to other people, and you begin to accept what God has given you, then you are in a position for Him to bring to birth all He has created you to be. There are things in you that have been overlooked by you, ignored by others, perphaps even ridiculed by some, but God calls those traits His treasure. And He wants to bring it forth! Every woman alive is a treasure chest. Each one holds something God intends for her to use in fulfilling His purpose for her life. And in the process, she will bring Him glory. My sister, find out what treasure God has hidden in you, because the devil is going to fight you for it. He knows the treasure is there and he wants if for his purposes. He wants it bad. So many women today are fighting the devil and don’t even know why. It’s because they haven’t discovered the treasure that lies within them. The devil knows it’s there. God knows it’s there. So the fight is on. Your treasure is powerful in God’s service, and the devil knows it. What he doesn’t know is that your treasure is also a weapon you can use to defeat him in your life. The devil will do anything he can to sabotage your self-esteem. He doesn’t want you developing your assets because he doesn’t want you to give birth to what God has put within you. Being loosed means that your treasure has been released. It means that the gift that has been bound within you has been issued an emancipation proclamation. It means that you are free to blossom and bring forth fruit! When the treasure within you is loosed, you are at liberty to deliver God’s purpose in your life. Now giving birth may require intense effort on your part. You may have to push like a woman in labor. You may have to fill your cheeks with air and push with all your might. So get ready, daughter of the living God, and soon you’ll hold a treasure in your arms.
But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us.

Love is Indispensable

If I speak in human or angelic tongues, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathorm all mysteries and all knowledge, and If I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship, that I may boast. but do not have love. I gain nothing. Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast. it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoice with the truth, It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always persevers Love never fails. But where there are prophecies they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. When I was a child, I talked like a child. I thought like a child. I reasoned like a child. When I became a man I put the ways of childhood behind me. For now we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
1 Corinthians 13:1-13

Only You

You are unique, dear woman. That is what makes you priceless. The Lord will never, ever replace you. Though He has millions more children, each one wonderful. none is exactly like you! Never give up your uniqueness in order to be what you admire in someone else. Glean all you can from everyone, but duplicate none. You are too priceless as an original to be reduced to a cheap copy! Perhaps you do not understand what an amazing jewel of a woman you are. The Lord created you for a purpose that only you can fulfill. Pay attention now! Have you yet realized how intensely God loves you? In spite of your afflictons, He loves you. The Father sweeps you up into His heart. He had held you through the rough places, trusting the strength of His arms to keep you through the pains of life. It has been a long ride, but He is still holding on. Perhaps you have asked the Father for something, and He didn’t do what you thought He should have done. Perhaps you are disappointed that He didn’t show up in the way you thought He would. Before you feel unloved, take a moment and think. Isn’t there evidence in your life that, from time to time, He has brought you through a storm? Don’t you dare act as if the Father doesn’t love you just because He doesn’t already shown and the night rides He has already carried you through. That love constantly affirms your uniqueness. You see, our society has spent so much time criticizing difference that we fail to see God in diversity. He never made two snowflakes alike. He wants us to be different. Different doesn’t mean less than or more than-just different. If God hadn’t made you as He did, you wouldn’t have been able to persevere as you have. There are many people who couldn’t take what you have been through. God wants to use you in a unique way to be a blessing to those around you. Remember, people are blessed when you are sincere-not perfect, just sincere. Don’t let anyone manipulate you into forsaking your own uniqueness. Those people weren’t built for your life’s destiny, and they can’t play your role. Aren’t you glad that God prepared you for life instead of preparing life for you? So, whether life is ready for you or not, you are ready for it! Just tell the world, Get ready, get ready, get ready!
For we are God’s hadiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
Ephesians 2:10
