MATTHEW 7:19_and cast into the fire.
In the parable of the fig tree I see Jesus as the vine dresser. The needs you have in life require fertilizer.
If you feel like your life does not and has not produced fruit—don’t panic. You are not about to be cut down and cast into the fire. Jesus sees your potential because He knows your created purpose. He wants to work in and teach your heart through the Bible. Jesus longs for you to hear His words and know the truth. And knowing the truth will make you … you guessed it … free!
This is freedom from believing the devil’s lies.
Lies that make the tree (your life) wither.
If you believe anything negative about your created life—you’re withering.
If you believe that you were not created with a purpose in life—you’re withering.
If you believe you can never personally know God—you’re withering.
If you believe Jesus does not have the power to give you eternal life—you’re withering.
If you believe your physical afflictions or defects can keep you from achieving God’s purpose—you’re withering.
If you believe your lack of finances can keep you from achieving God’s purpose—you’re withering.
All of these things cause you to come to God with your needs. God meets your needs with the fertilizers of faith and trust.
King Eternal, Please help me see that my needs increase my faith. In the powerful name of Jesus, Amen.
Christ uses my needs to draw me closer – To Him!
