John 15 clearly states, Jesus is the true vine. That is to say, He is the single connection to relationship with the heavenly Father’s love and purposes for our lives. How painful it is when, because of some abuse, we were separated from the love of an earthly father. Yet, I love that thought, Jesus calls you and me to a connection with the heavenly Father—one in which all my insecurities and affections are made whole, because of the Father’s love for me. The truth is, in Christ Jesus, the Father has pursued us to demonstrate how great is that love. This connection demands the relationship we often lacked from others. It calls me to inclusion with His cross by insisting that I follow Him as His disciple and friend. My connection to this ‘true vine’ will bring me to an understanding that He chose me long before I knew Him, and He ordains my life to live in a way so as to bear lasting fruit. It further makes me know He will answer every prayer I pray toward producing fruit and fulfilling His fatherly expectation for my life. If what I am saying makes no sense, it is because you lack the connection to Christ that produces the Spirit of knowledge and truth. It is our desire that you make the connection to receive Jesus as your Lord and Savior. The word says, “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name.” If you need prayer, contact us and we will help you find the lasting connection that brings to life.

God desires that you overcome today. David gives us the proper focus in Psalm 27:4 when he says, ‘One thing I have asked of the Lord and that I will seek..’ He underscores the high priority of God’s presence staying focused on the place where His glory dwells with us. I believe today God is saying on the basis of His word, you and I need to arrive at that place of decision–a place where we take a stand with the Lord and seek His presence. He says, ‘follow these steps on your way to seeing greater confidence living an overcoming life’. He says, ‘Fear no man; make no room for evil; and ask what you would that I could do for you. I will do mighty things even greater that what you could ask me for.’ Stand today in the fearless abode of a loving Father who desires to publish abroad a miraculous testimony through your life that rescues, heals, and delivers.
