Sounds of My Writings: Spiritual Pruning
When Jesus desires to bare more fruit in your life, there are seasons and moments where its best you do not make major decisions. It would be wise to be still and dive into deeper prayer and the Word.
These seasons may feel awkward, as though you're not sure what direction you are taking, or as if something has been lost or removed. Be comforted in knowing that it is the work of the Holy Spirit to remove things from your life that will not favor your growth in Christ.
"Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit, He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit, He prunes it so that it may bear more fruit. "You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you. "Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it abides in the vine, so neither can you unless you abide in Me.
