“God blessed them; and God said to them, ‘Be fruitful…’ ”
– Genesis 1:28a –
We are in a season of accelerated increase, and God desires you to be blessed with fruitfulness in every area of your life. In the very beginning of the Bible we see His heart for mankind: “…and God said to them, ‘Be fruitful.’ ” He wants you to enjoy fruitfulness – He created you for this very purpose.
Take a moment and imagine yourself overflowing with fruitfulness in everything you put your hands to. Yes, everything you touch is blessed! Your family life bears fruit, your provision bears fruit and increases; you are fruitful in your workplace and in all your relationships. This is truly God’s will for you!
In John 15:5, Jesus taught His disciples a secret from the Father concerning fruitfulness. He said, “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.”
I once had a lemon tree in our yard that produced lemons that were enormous and plenteous. There were so many lemons on the tree that the branches would sometimes break due to the weight. They were loaded with fruit! The branches in themselves had no ability to produce those glorious lemons. They simply hosted the fruit. If I cut off a branch and put it on my table and commanded with all my might, “Produce lemons,” no matter how hard the branch might attempt to comply, it would not produce even one lemon. Why? Because it was not attached to the tree. On its own it can produce nothing. It must abide in the lemon tree to produce like fruit.
This is a picture of you and me when we are in Christ. Jesus Christ is the life-giving tree. You become a branch in this glorious tree when you invite Him into your heart to be your Savior and Lord. He comes by His Spirit and lives in you when you ask Him with sincere faith, and your life is then in Him. His life-giving Spirit living in you produces fruit. You don’t need to strive or worry. You simply need to believe with joyful expectation that what God promised you, He will fulfill. You are destined in Him to bear fruit – much fruit!
Decree the following over your life-
I decree that:
- I am truly blessed with a fruitful life.
- I am like a tree that’s firmly planted by streams of living water with green healthy leaves producing fruit in due season.
- I am not anxious when there is lack all around me and when times look difficult, because I am a fruitful vine, always producing and bearing good fruit.
- I flourish like the palm tree.
- I continue to grow strong and upright in my life and faith.
- I will still yield fruit in old age and I will be full of abundance, energy, and vitality because the fruit of the righteous is a tree of life.
- I abide in Christ and therefore I manifest the fruit of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.
- The fruit I bear in my life is better than gold and the choicest silver.
- The fruit of Christ’s light in me consists of goodness, righteousness, and truth. I am fully satisfied with good by the fruit of my words and the deeds that my hands return to me.
- I am destined to bear good fruit because of God’s faithful love for me.
