I feel like I write all my posts about what God is teaching me, and unfortunately, it’s not all butterflies and roses.
God is teaching me recently about who I rely on. Who do I call or text first when something happens?
I’ve always struggled with putting other people before God but this weekend/yesterday has been such a wake up call to who I rely on.
Why don’t I trust God? Why do I talk to my friends more than I talk to him?
I think when I don’t do things God’s way or when I have wrong intentions, it ALWAYS ends in destruction and that’s what I’m learning right now.
I’m learning that God is strengthening me and purifying me and getting me ready for when I’m on my own.
While being purified and pruned hurts and is uncomfortable, I know that in the end it’s going to result in me being the person God created me to be.
It stinks that when we learn something once, we can’t just learn it and then forget it. But I think living a Godly lifestyle is like playing music; you have to keep practicing.
God, I repent for putting things and people before you. Thank you for forgiving me, and for loving me when I stumble away from you. But I rebuke satan and his lies that the pruning you’re doing in my life is all that there is. I know that you wouldn’t prune me if I didn’t matter to you, so thank you for showing me my identity and value through this. So I declare this morning, you love me! You see me! You know me! And you’re not going to leave me here in the pruning process.. you’re going to carry me through to the growth on the other side. Thank you Father!!
John 15:2- “He cuts off 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.”
