The Security of the Tree Trunk…

1 Corinthians 12:4-7 (The Message Bible), God’s various gifts are handed out everywhere…God’s various ministries are carried out everywhere…God’s various expressions of power are in action everywhere…God himself is behind it all. Each person is given something to do that shows who God is: Everyone gets in on it, everyone benefits.’

In Neil Anderson’s December 22nd devotion, he wrote a paragraph that really challenged me, and I believe it will you also. “God has known us from the foundation of the world. He has entrusted us with certain life endowments. He will certainly lead us in a way that makes use of our gifts and talents.

They hang onto the security of the tree trunk, but the fruit is always on the end of the limb.” 

The above paragraph begs us to ask ourselves several questions:

  • Am I hanging onto the security of the tree trunk?

Never forget, “THE FRUIT IS ALWAYS ON THE END OF THE LIMB

Many of us “never realize our potential.  We are unwilling to take the risks that faith requires.”  The Holy Spirit within each of us is pleading daily for us to…

STOP HANGING ONTO THE SECURITY OF THE TREE TRUNK!
