Devotional Tea 24: Our Power is in Him

Scripture: John 15:4-6 (NIV)

Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me. “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. If you do not remain in me, you are like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned.

Faith is to the soul what life is to the body. Prayer is to faith what breath is to the body. How a person can live and not breathe is past my comprehension, and how a person can believe and not pray is past my comprehension too. (J. C. Ryle)
Lord, deliver me from me. Help me know you are the only reason I come, not because of who I am, but because of whose I am. May my confidence ever rest on all you have done for me, not what I have done for you. Help my heart never to lose its way home.

Further Reading: Proverbs 21:31; Psalm 127:1-2; Romans 8:11; Ephesians 2:8

Prayer: Lord, help me never forget the source of my life, my joy, my wealth, my strength, and my all. May I never get to a place or station in life where I begin to think I can do it on my own. My essential sustenance is of and in you, my Lord, and my God.
