“I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.”
John 15:5 KJV
I watched a family Christmas Program about a handicapped little boy. When the little boy won the race he was in, his mother said “Good job, honey”. I believe when you and I do things that make our Heavenly Father happy, He says to us “Good job” and even when we fail to do things; He says “I still love you”.
I believe there are times when we fail to do things because we don’t ask Jesus to help us. Jesus has told us that without Him, we can do nothing. When will we learn to stop trying to do things and ask Jesus to help us? Jesus loves us and He will help us if we will only ask Him to help us.
What a tender loving and compassionate Heavenly Father we have because He really does care about us. Father, I pray for all who are discouraged, please comfort and encourage them. I pray for every pastor who is preaching the good news of Jesus. Please encourage them. In Jesus’ Name, I pray. Amen.
