My Morning Prayer: He Reduces to Increase

My Morning Prayer: He Reduces to Increase
-Roy Lessin, Meeting in the Meadow

Don’t be discouraged today if you sense God’s hand doing its sanctifying work in your life. If He is trimming your wick, it is only to make your light shine brighter; if He is allowing you to be pressed within His caring hands, it is only to release the flow of the sweet wine of His Spirit.
Humble yourself under His mighty hand, and as you do, allow this prayer to be upon your lips: Father, work in me what I cannot work; do in me what I cannot do; be in me what I cannot be; live through me what I cannot live—for I know it is through You, and You alone, that my life will be to the praise of Your glory. Amen.

He prunes the branches that do bear fruit so they will produce even more (John 15:2 NLT).
