Bearing FRUIT in 2018!

 The word for 2018 that stands out clear in my mind is that..."This is the year to avoid procrastination, moving into those desired callings that we have put on the back-burner.   Moving in the Holy Spirit will usher us into a season of fruition. In other words 2018 will become a year of fruition. as we stand firm and 'do' what God has called us to do." Even taking baby steps to get there determines the outcome of a great destiny! God may have ordained The Way...but we need to see it and walk in it without procrastination...

   To be honest, I really did not know the full meaning of fruition. What I found is three definitions that tie in on what I feel like God is saying to me, and I hope to everyone reading this:

1.  Attainment of anything desired; realization; accomplishment.

2.  Enjoyment, as of something attained or realized.

3.  State of bearing fruit.

     When we go ahead and do those things we are putting on the back-burner, that becomes a accomplishment that can bring deliverance in our minds.  When we attain those dreams that we set out to do in the first place.... I believe that we can achieve those goals once we realize that if allowed, can build up frantic burdens rolled up into one ball of wax. In other-words, underlying and undo stress...what we should have done and did not do! Check yourself, do some soul searching!!

     We need to allow God to take off those blinders to see this is the supernatural year to bear fruit, to not put off those things until tomorrow because what If tomorrow never comes.

     Procrastination is a tricky word. I have even heard myself say that this phrase that ,"I am waiting on God."   Well what if you heard wrong and God is not wanting you to wait. Maybe he is waiting for you to take a leap of faith before He can move on into the scene.

Finally I will say this, fear of the unknown will always bring us into a mind full of cobwebs. Get that junk out of you mind, so that it can be clear to make those quality choices that will allow us to bear fruit that will last for eternity.

Remember sometimes we do not have to take big leaps but small jumps.  It all matters in the grandscheme of God's plan 

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. If you do not remain in me, you are like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned.
John 15:4-6

This is a rewrite from 2017, but I feel it still stands TRUE is so many lives.  Please dont allow living life to distract you from the purpose God has for you at this time of the year; full of new year resolutions... make this year count for something.  We are called to be FRUIT BEARERS. Beware and take heed be sober and vigilant of the enemy that loves to make us barren in GOD. Stay in the word and in the Holy Spirit.
