Son, I made fruit trees to bear fruit. Each tree bears fruit in its own time. For some it only requires one year, for others it may take many years. So it is with my sons and daughters. There is a time for fruit-bearing in every life. The problem is that you cannot determine when that season is to be. Only I do that. When you try to bear fruit for my kingdom before your time, you make a mess. You become frustrated. Remember the words of my Son: “Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me.” Moses began bearing fruit at 80. David and Joshua’s fruit-bearing began at 30. Samuel began bearing fruit as a child. There is no “right age” for you to begin. Your job is to abide in me. My job is to produce fruit through your life. Do not fret if you are not bearing fruit when you think you should be. The fruit must come in my season for it to be the kind of fruit that nourishes others.
He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also shall not wither; and whatever he does shall prosper. Psalms 1:3
Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me. John 15:4
