“Remain in Me, and I [will remain] in you. Just as no branch can bear fruit by itself without remaining in the vine, neither can you [bear fruit, producing evidence of your faith] unless you remain in Me.”

John 15:4

So often we try to work things out in the natural, relying on ourselves. Christ is asking us to step out and begin seeing as He sees. There is so much going on around us that we don’t know. We need to see as Christ does and believe. Allow Christ to go before you and prepare the way. Give Him time to work on our behalf. Don’t step outside of the path that He has led us to, but walk with Him step by step. There is no need to get ourselves worked up with worry masked as concern. Remain in Christ and know His Peace.

Take a step back and see the bigger picture that He has laid out before us, knowing that it is a good plan, one that He has been preparing for us for a long time. Don’t fear the path that is before us, but embrace it knowing that this is EXACTLY what was planned for us from the beginning. We are every experience that we have walked through, both good and bad. These experiences have shaped and molded us into who we are today.

Remain in Christ and He will remain in us, leading and guiding us into the purpose that only we can fulfill.
