Seventy Days of Blessing - Day Twenty-Two

Dear Saints,

Health, wealth and miracles should naturally happen if our lives are completely woven or intertwined with Jesus. Christ is in us and we are in Him. He promises that we will see and do greater things than what He manifested while He lived among us. But those greater things – those blessings that flow to us and through us - are a manifestation of a life intimately acquainted with the Lord and His (and our) Father. We can do nothing except what we see and hear the Father doing.

My wife and I have visited several vineyards over the last couple of years.  There is one remarkable observation that I have made. The truly fruitful and bountiful branch filled with grapes is barely distinguishable from the vine with which it is connected and intertwined.  The key to the blessing is to be intertwined and woven in an indistinguishable way to Jesus the vine.
"I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing" (John 15:5).
