Power to be Fruitful

As the people of God assemble today, may they be infused with Holy Spirit power to be fruitful all the year ahead.  May vision and empowerment come to each one.  I pray that the fruit our Lord gives you and your church this year will be like the net the disciples had to call for help to draw in.  May there be such a bounty that the net would be near bursting with the catch. May your net be strong and hold. “So Simon Peter went aboard and hauled the net to land, full of large fish, 153 of them; and [though] there were so many of them, the net was not torn.” (Jn.21:11, Amp)


October is For Moving Forward in Paths

The month of OCTOBER IS FOR MOVING FORWARD IN PATHS that our Lord has ordained for us to be effective and fulfilled in. Those factors which have previously blocked progress are being removed. Distractions are fading and the fruit of a faithful walk is coming into view.  “We pray that you would walk in the ways of true righteousness, pleasing God in every good thing you do. Then you’ll become fruit-bearing branches, yielding to his life, and maturing in the rich experience of knowing God in his fullness!” (Col.1:10, TPT)


Criticism Not Neutral

For years, the leaders of this nation and special interest groups have been filling its atmosphere with criticism and caustic vitriol. Its presence so thick in the atmosphere has increased it and made it contagious. There is an inescapable principle in the Bible. It isn’t God just getting mad at a few well-deserving individuals, it is a God-given law of the universe which tells us that no voiced vitriol is neutral. ”Words kill, words give life; they’re either poison or fruit—you choose.” (Prov.18:21, Msg)

Imperative to be Properly Connected

The fruit of our lives is a witness of the connections we have made. In Jn.15:4, Jesus makes it plain that the only way a branch can produce fruit is to live in the vine, i.e., be properly connected.  ”Abide in Me, and I will abide in you. A branch cannot bear fruit if it is disconnected from the vine, and neither will you if you are not connected to Me.” (Jn.15:4, The Voice)

Accomplished Through Connection

Jesus blessed many lives. He did miracles by the power of the Holy Spirit that redemptively impacted people. Jesus got done what He got done because of His connection with the Father. Jn 5:19  Jesus said to the Jews, “I can guarantee this truth: The Son cannot do anything on his own. He can do only what he sees the Father doing. Indeed, the Son does exactly what the Father does.” (GW) The fruit of our lives is a witness of the connections we have made. In Jn.15:4 Jesus makes it plain that the only way a branch can produce fruit is to live in the vine, i.e., be properly connected. We are praying you discover daily that you are connected to Father God through Jesus for His redemptive purposes in the earth.  (Marty’s Daily Discovery as heard on TEXAS PRAISE RADIO at the bottom of the hour 24hrs/day.) www.txpraise.com

Sprout out on Every Branch

May you sprout out on every branch and may every bloom become valuable fruit.  May you labor under and rejoice and revel in awesome, excruciating FigLimbFruitgrowing pains that bring you to the height of your Lord’s expectations for you.  No more withering, no more stunted growth but God-enabled enlargement, production, extension, multiplication and proliferation be unto you for the glory and the Name’s sake of our LORD JESUS CHRIST and His fame in the earth. May our Lord’s success be manifest through you like a vine that bears fruit. (Jn.15:2, NKJV) ”Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit.” We are praying you discover daily God’s fruitfulness in your life.

Glory Of The Father

walk aloneJesus was a Tree who brought forth fruit (Jn.12:28; 17:1). Jesus was the Kingdom exposed to mankind. In Jesus, the Kingdom was observed; in His lifestyle, His character, His actions (Matt.12:28). The fact that He brought forth fruit is the fact that He was the glory of His Father in the earth. “And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth.” (Jn.1:14, NASB) In his new book, The Orphan Heart, Larry Burden gives an interesting definition of “glory” from the Greek word “doxa”:  “the appearance, form or aspect of a person which catches our attention and commands our recognition”. The Message puts it like this:  “The Word became flesh and blood, and moved into the neighborhood. We saw the glory with our own eyes, the one-of-a-kind glory, like Father, like Son, Generous inside and out, true from start to finish.” (Jn.1:14, Msg) Though the Father was sitting upon a throne in heaven, He could be seen in the earth in Jesus as He interacted with His environment.
