God described His people as a “vineyard” and “His delightful plant” (Isaiah 5:1-10). He wanted them to be fruitful, but their actions were keeping Him from blessing them. He hoped they would turn to Him, so He could bless them abundantly. They had been producing “worthless” grapes, but His desire was that they “produce good grapes.”

God described Himself as the “keeper” of His vineyard, guarding them and providing the water they needed. Even though they had fallen short, He promised that a day was coming when they would “blossom and sprout, and they will fill the whole world with fruit.”

Jesus provided similar imagery when He said, “I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser” (John 15:1-7). He is the source of all blessing and fruitfulness. He eliminates anything that prevents fruitfulness, and prunes every branch that does bear fruit “so that it may bear more fruit.”

The Bible makes it clear that God desires to bless us and make us fruitful in every part of our lives. He sent Jesus that we “may have life, and have it abundantly” (John 10:10). And He is “able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think” (Ephesians 3:20).

Don’t let the devil rob you of this abundance. Don’t be crippled by doubt. Abide in Jesus, and let God’s Word change your life. Declare His promises to be true, and boldly stand on His Word.

Accept His discipline and correction, that you might become more fruitful. And Sow with the Seeds He has given you, knowing that you will Reap what you Sow (Galatians 6:7).
