John 15:1-2 (NASB)
"I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit, He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit, He prunes it so that it may bear more fruit."
There are seasons of pruning for the follower of Jesus.
As pruning helps a tree or a plant it does the same thing in the spiritual realm.
Our Father in heaven is the vinedresser, who loves us deeply.
He cares for us so much that He prunes off areas that can be a hindrance to us when it comes to producing the maximum amount of fruit in our lives.
What has God pruned in your life?
What has been cut off?
Did He make you more fruitful in the long run?
