Fruitful IN ALL AREAS!
(It’s Your Heritage To Be Productive)
TO THE BIBLE: Isaiah 32:15-16
“Until the Spirit is poured upon us from on high, and the wilderness becomes a fruitful field, and the fruitful field is counted as a forest. Then justice will dwell in the wilderness, and righteousness remain in the fruitful field.”
God’s desire is that you walk worthy of Him and please Him in all things. That means when people meet you or listen to you, they’ll be able to testify of God’s goodness, grace, greatness, and love. No wonder the Lord Jesus said in John 15:5, “I am the vine, you are the branches….”
The glory of a tree is in its branches. So if Jesus says He’s the vine and we’re the branches, He’s saying that we’re His extension, His beauty, and His glory. Thus, everywhere you go, you should show forth His glory, please Him in all things, and be fruitful in every good work. This means when we get involved in anything, it comes out right. It can grow, increase, and prosper because productivity is part of your heritage in Christ. Even if that thing was a wilderness before you came, it becomes a “fruitful field,” and the fruitful field becomes a “forest.” Hallelujah!
Always remember that you’re not ordinary. When you arrive in a place, Christ has arrived! That’s the reason you can be fruitful in every good work. So whenever you’re given an assignment, don’t say, “I don’t understand what to do”; no! Don’t think or talk that way! Rather, see yourself as the right candidate for that assignment, and go ahead to make it a success.
Dear Father, thank you for making me your extension, your beauty and your glory. I will walk worthy of you always, pleasing you in all things, and fruitful in every good work, in the Name of the Lord Jesus. Amen.
