Day 1: Becoming Fruitful
We were made to bear fruit and to come into the ‘fullness’ of life that Jesus promised. We were made to have a ‘garden’ teeming with life and full of abundant fruit. Growing fruit requires us to trust the heart of God; that what He says about how we go about life will set us up for success. Becoming fruitful brings a deep sense of confidence and trust in God!
Psalm 1:1-3 (Amp) Blessed (happy, fortunate, prosperous, and enviable) is the man who walks and lives not in the counsel of the ungodly [following their advice, their plans and purposes], nor stands [submissive and inactive] in the path where sinners walk, nor sits down [to relax and rest] where the scornful [and the mockers] gather.2 But his delight and desire are in the law of the Lord, and on His law (the precepts, the instructions, the teachings of God) he habitually meditates (ponders and studies) by day and by night.3 And he shall be like a tree firmly planted [and tended] by the streams of water, ready to bring forth its fruit in its season; its leaf also shall not fade or wither; and everything he does shall prosper [and come to maturity].
