“Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can you, except you abide in me.  I am the vine, you are the branches: He that abides in me, and I in him, the same brings forth much fruit: for without me you can do nothing.” 
John 15:4-5 

Are you stressed, tired, have a lot going on in your life?  What’s the answer: The Vine!

If you are a believer, you are a branch and Jesus is the Vine.  You're connected, you're one.  What does a branch have to do?  Just be a branch and abide (stay where you are.)   The vine does the work.  Our part is to rest and trust the Vine, how wonderful is that!  The supply flows to us from the vine.  The branch will bear fruit simply because it is attached to the vine.  If the branch leaves the vine, the fruit stops, the life stops.

When “things” happen, picture yourself abiding in Jesus (the Vine) and see His strength, help, health, peace, His grace, flow right through Him to you.  When you need help of any kind, He is IN you and your help is supplied!  Whatever it is, the Vine has all of it and it is a never-ending flow directly to you.

So rest and enjoy being the branch.  Let the Vine do the work!  Actually, there is one thing you should work for:  “Let us labor therefore to enter into that rest” (Heb 4:11) 
God really has done it all.  Believe Him, trust Him and pay attention to staying in His rest. 

Thank You Jesus for Your never-ending supply of grace and love for us!!

Enjoy the fruit,
