It’s always good to see God’s truth confirmed in your life… even if it’s painful.
I’ve noticed a definite pattern in my own life…
If I’m feeling unfruitful, uncertain about my direction, and generally disconnected from the world around me, there’s a reason for it.
And that reason is I’ve not been abiding in Christ as I should.
Instead, I’m trying to live too much on my own… leaning on my own understanding.
This, of course, confirms what the Bible says… that in order to live fruitfully, we have to abide in Him (Jn.15).
We can’t do it apart from the life and light He gives.
So if you’re like me and want to live a fruitful life but are inclined to go it alone… don’t.
It didn’t work for Adam, and it won’t work for us.
To rule and cultivate our domains fruitfully, we’ve always got to be walking with the Lord.
