He cuts off every branch of mine that doesn’t produce fruit, and he prunes the branches that do bear fruit so they will produce even more.
Isn’t it painful when God cuts off one of your branches? We begin to turn on the Pruner and develop anger towards Him. Would it help to know God did it because the branch wouldn’t produce any fruit? Be encouraged to know He will stop you if it’s not fruitful and He prunes to keep you working harder resulting in fruitfulness.
