Don’t resist the pruning!

Hello all ye delivered!

The process of pruning has begun here at Global Spheres, and I took some pictures to share with you. I am continuously amazed to see the visual representation of what the body goes through displayed through what is going on in the garden! Pruning is deliverance; He must cut away the dead and old so that the new may flourish and bloom! If someone comes to you and tries to hand you something new and beautiful, but your hands are full because you are still dragging around the old, you will miss your prosperity! So don’t resist the pruning — rejoice and thank God for the new things that He has in your future.

“I am the Real Vine and my Father is the Farmer. He cuts off every branch of me that doesn’t bear grapes. And every branch that is grape-bearing he prunes back so it will bear even more. You are already pruned back by the message I have spoken. “Live in me. Make your home in me just as I do in you. In the same way that a branch can’t bear grapes by itself but only by being joined to the vine, you can’t bear fruit unless you are joined with me. “I am the Vine, you are the branches. When you’re joined with me and I with you, the relation intimate and organic, the harvest is sure to be abundant. Separated, you can’t produce a thing. Anyone who separates from me is deadwood, gathered up and thrown on the bonfire. But if you make yourselves at home with me and my words are at home in you, you can be sure that whatever you ask will be listened to and acted upon. This is how my Father shows who he is—when you produce grapes, when you mature as my disciples. – John 15:2-8 – The Message Bible

“I’m not going to say anything, but simply look on from where I live, Quiet as warmth that comes from the sun, silent as dew during harvest.” And then, just before harvest, after the blossom has turned into a maturing grape, He’ll step in and prune back the new shoots, ruthlessly hack off all the growing branches. He’ll leave them piled on the ground for birds and animals to feed on — Fodder for the summering birds, fodder for the wintering animals. – Isaiah 18:5 – The Message Bible

Thank God for the harvest!! 

Blessings!

    My, my, my| That is what I am experiencing now in my life.

    Seeing the pictures of the pruning, helped me to realize that God has a purpose for it.

    There is a purpose in the pain. We have to have the pain to get the gain.
