God’s pruning

The Lord’s pruning of the believer’s life is always so thorough that when completed, no room is left for the flesh. Though uncomfortable, His work causes our lives to shine beautifully and bring Him glory and praise. So if you are in a season of divine pruning, ask the Lord for grace to endure to the end. You’ll be pleased with the outcome when the work is done. 

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, that it may bear more fruit.

—John 15:1-2 NKJV
