How to Accomplish Your Full Potential

A devotion on John 15:7

If you remain in me, and my words remain in you, you will ask whatever you desire, and it will be done for you.
–John 15:7

Have you ever wondered how a tomato plant can provide so many delicious tomatoes, or why there are so many fragrant roses on one bush?

It is because the stems holding the tomatoes or roses are connected to the main branch of the plant, which is the offshoot of the plant’s root system. All the nutrients gathered from the soil and sunshine transfer to the actual tomato or roses by travelling from this main branch to all the offshoots.

If the stems weren’t securely attached, there would be no fruit or flowers for us to enjoy.

Like flowers and fruit must remain attached to their roots, we must remain firmly connected to Jesus through prayer and through His words of promise and instruction. In doing so, our life is a reflection of the ‘plant’ from which we stem—God, our maker and master, and Jesus our Savior.

When you remain firmly attached to Him, He supplies your every need, doing everything to make you the happiest person in the whole world.

He is so generous that His loving grace and blessings will spill over you so you can share them with others. Determine today to stay connected to Jesus!

Prayer

Dear God, Thank You for supplying all I need. Please help me to remain in Jesus, heeding His words of promise and instruction today and always. Help me accomplish my full potential. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
