Glory. Profound glory.
It is His glory that manifests over our lives as well, redeeming every loss, every pain, every disappointment. It’s easy to lose sight of His character that guarantees beauty from ashes. It is in our hard seasons when the enemy makes his boldest advances to plant lies deep in our spirits against the Most High. No wonder Jesus reminds us: “I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing.” (John 15:5 NASB)
Sometimes it takes being stripped bare to really enter into this truth. Until then, our best efforts still seem to suffice.
Give up. Give in. Surrender. And become more fruitful than you ever imagined possible, in Him.
In awe over His glory.
