When God Prunes You

In agriculture, pruning is a necessary process. To “prune” means something is cut away, something is removed. In life, we all go through a pruning process. Scripture says, “the Lord takes away”¦.” God will prune our lives so that we can bear much fruit. In other words, maybe a good friend that you counted on moved away,  maybe you got laid off your job, maybe your business shut down, or a relationship ended.

God knows what you need in your life in order to grow and flourish. Sometimes when things happen that we don’t understand, we have to just trust the process. He is preparing you for increase, preparing you to go to another level. Don’t put a question mark where God has placed a full stop. Move forward and don’t look back. 

Today, you may be going through the pruning process, don’t get bitter. Don’t get down and think it’s the end. Don’t start thinking that you’re a failure. Have the attitude, “God is pruning me, and as hard as it is, I’m going to let it go, knowing that it was only a temporary provision, and what He has in my future will be greater and more powerful than what I’m letting go of.” If you will accept the change and stay in faith, God will open new doors. He will bring new opportunities, new friendships, and take you to another level for His glory!

“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.”

(John 15:2, NIV)?

Pray With Me
Yahweh, thank You for loving me enough to work in my life. Father, I release the things I don’t understand into Your hands. Please Lord, give me strength to get through this pruning process. I believe that You are working in my life, and I trust Your unfailing judgement. God, I believe that You have good things in store for my future. I choose to wait on You today and forevermore, in Jesus’ Name! Amen.

When God introduced himself to me, he pruned me for 2.5 years until my baptism and several months after. It was extremely difficult but looking back it is a joy to see my Walk to God.
