God expects you to grow. He expects you to go from faith to faith and from glory to glory. He expects you to mature as Christian going from the milk of the Word to the meat of the Word. Your growth is by faith and faith comes by hearing the Word.
Faith is the channel that allows you to access the power of God. Everything that God has prepared for you has been prepared in the supernatural and it’s through the channel of faith that you bring those things into the natural world. They were made by the power of God, the same power that raised Jesus from the dead. Your growth in God is by the power of God.
John 15 talks about Jesus being the vine and you being a branch connected to the vine. Bearing much fruit is dependent on you abiding, or being continually connected, to the vine. God is the vinedresser or gardener and He is the one that prunes you (cuts away parts of you that are not needed) so that you will bear much fruit. Jesus is the power source that allows for the fruit bearing. The question you have to ask yourself is whether or not you are bearing fruit. Do you realize the products of God working in your life? Do you see how He uses you to impact the lives of others?
God has a wonderful plan for your life and He only thinks good things about you. He wants you empowered to complete the work that He started in you. Join me on Wednesdays at noon EST on heaven1410 iheart radio for the month of March for a lesson on the empowerment of God. I pray that you have a blessed week!
