My child, here is the goal I have set for you, to bear much fruit and glorify Me. I will cause this to happen when you lay everything down at the foot of the cross and follow Me with your whole heart. Abide in Me and I will abide in you. You cannot bear fruit in your own strength. In fact, apart from Me you can do nothing. So cease striving to make things happen on your own. Know that I am God. I alone will do through you what I have purposed from the beginning. Don’t think like the world thinks. Surrender equals success. I love you with an everlasting love. Abide in Me.
