David Jeremiah 26th December 2022 Devotional MESSAGE
Severe drought in many parts of the U.S. is directly impacting crop production. A recent survey by the American Farm Bureau Federation found that 37 percent of American farmers have killed existing crops because they won’t become mature due to dry conditions, while other farmers have chosen not to plant as many crops. The lack of rain has led to a decrease in our land’s fruitfulness.
Our spiritual life can become plagued by drought as well. When our time in God’s Word and in prayer diminishes, our life produces less fruit. But we don’t need to wait for it to rain before we see an increase in fruit. When our life seems spiritually dry, we should return to the basics. Douse our mind in God’s Word. Refresh our soul with time in prayerful solitude. Water our heart through fellowship with other believers. As we do this, we will once again bear spiritual fruit. Our words, actions, and character will reflect Christ and point others to Him. Walk worthy of the Lord, bearing spiritual fruit for Him.
Growth [is] the only evidence of life.
John Henry Newman

Dear God, I come to You in the Name of Jesus. I admit that I am not right with You, and I want to be right with You. I ask You to forgive me of all my sins. The Bible says if I confess with my mouth that “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in my heart that God raised Him from the dead, I will be saved (Rom. 10:9). I believe with my heart and I confess with my mouth that Jesus is the Lord and Savior of my life. Thank You for saving me! In Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen.
