Lord, Jesus, You are the True Vine and I am a needy branch. You are my sustainer, my provider. My source of power and strength. You enable me to flourish and grow. Apart from You, I recognize that I can do nothing of any eternal value (John 15:5). I’m so grateful that by Your grace and through the indwelling of Your Spirit, I am a new creation, purposed to bear abundant, good fruit. Remind me daily that You are my source of Living Water. Pour your sustaining power into every nook and cranny of my being. Refresh me with Your presence. Guide me with Your wisdom. Teach me your ways, Lord God, so I may know You and be fruitful in every good work.
