John 15:1-2 reads “…Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.”
There are times in life when the fruit or things we have achieved through hard work and time are suddenly taken away from us. It could be a business you have built, a relationship you treasure, a church you may have built or a position you acquired. Just when you were ready to enjoy the fruit of your labour, you see everything taken away.
You become confused and ask God, “Why?” You could pray and ask God for restoration, but the God you are praying to may be the one who purged or cut off that fruit, and not the devil.
Why? Simple! God wants you to bear more fruit. Sometimes, our very success can be a stumbling block because it can put you in a comfort zone. When your fruit is cut, new doors, opportunities and grace will be opened.
Stop crying and go through them because you will explode to a higher level!
