Picture Scripture - Tree 1.4

By Chris Baxter


Picture: Tree (the pruning)

Scripture: John 15:1-7; Ephesians 4:31-32; Romans 8:11-14; Romans 8:28

Write any phrases from the selected Bible verses that speak to you:

Take a minute to think about a gifted gardener pruning his or her carefully sustained rose bushes. Just like this wisdom-driven physical clipping, God’s all wise spiritual pruning is for our good (although most often, it does not feel good!). When these non-fruit bearing branches are broken off however, the result is both beautiful and beneficial not only to you, but to all those you encounter.

Is there a time in your life that you experienced God’s pruning? Explain.

Can you trust God in the pruning process even if you cannot understand what He is doing? Why or why not?

For as many as are the promises of God, in Him they are yes; therefore also through Him is our Amen to the glory of God through us. 2 Corinthians 1:20

Dear Lord, if you say it, you mean it. If you promise it, you keep it. If you command it, it surely will come to pass. From start to finish, your word never wavers, and your foundation never cracks. Therefore, we will stand on your promises and we will walk without fear. Then as we trust in you more and more, cause us to dance in your truth with all our might. Amen
