Fruit in the Time of Testing

“…feed on His faithfulness…”

My garden as been such a reflection of my life this year.

Just when I want to give up, I step outside and see fruit on the vine that was barren and long past yielding any hope for the future.

Oh my soul, wait. Yes, wait on the Lord for He will surely bring His promises and word to pass.

May this be an encouragement to all who, like me, are waiting on the Lord.

“Trust in the Lord…dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness…Commit your way to the Lord, trust also in Him, and He shall bring it to pass.” Psalm 37:3-6 NKJV

I find it encouraging to see there are 40 verses in Psalm 37. Forty (40) is the number for “testing” in Scripture.

He is their strength in the time of trouble, and the LORD shall help them…and save them because they trust in Him.” Psalm 37:40 NKJV

  1. Had to come back to this again to ponder (on my coffee break) 🙂 I am 100% sure we’ve crossed a new threshold from 5778 into 5779. Expect great things from God — fresh awakening… (BTW…if you visit YouTube, worth connecting to Sabrina Rogers videos(Helping Hands Ministries – Talahassee, FL) xo in King Jesus forever

    1. Will do Susan 😊 Yes, I am finding this new threshold also has a great deal of the “testing and trying” of His saints. Holding fast to the One Who never, no not ever, let’s go.😊💗

  2. Absolute truth in this blog. Real life and spiritual life as well. Often the fruit blossoms when the times have seemED difficult and the rain sparse. Waiting on Him for the Promise is the prayerful response. Thank you.

    1. Thank you Faye for sharing your journey too. Oh, but when we hear the “sound of abundance of rain” it makes the waiting in the dry place so much sweeter. I only wish my flesh would stop doing the impatient dance 🤣
