Devotional Monday: Abide in Him

John 15:4-5

Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me. I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing."

When I read a testimony on She reads truth, I instantly thought of the verse above because it was talking about abiding in him and as the video Hillary posted mentioned embracing your season of life. This week God has been teaching me just that, to embrace my season of life. To embrace the season that God  has put me in and to trust in his plans because they are far greater than my own. Ephesians 2:10 reminds us of just that, "For we are God's workmanship,created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared advance for us to do", Rest in this truth for a moment. It's so easy to compare our lives to others and wish that we had their life. But the truth is God created us in his image, and with his plans in mind for our lives and not our own. John 15:4-5 reminds us that apart from him we can do nothing, and that when we stop comparing our season of life to others and abide in him that is where we embrace the season that he has us in right now, weather it be singleness, marriage...etc. I encourage you to remember the truth that Ephesians 2:10 and John 15:4-5 reminds us of, and embrace what God has created in advance for each and every one of us, no matter where we are. Never forget that God always meets us right where we are at no matter the situation, circumstance, or season of life. Embrace what God has planned for you, and praise him each day for where you are instead of wishing you were somewhere else.
