1. Be connected. I am not talking about being connected with “big” people in the government. I am talking about being connected with God. When you want to be fruitful, be connected to the Source of all fruitfulness. When you do, for sure you will know what fruitfulness is. If you do not abide in Jesus, and His Words abide in you, you will not experience fruitfulness.
John 15:1-8 (AMP)
I AM the True Vine, and My Father is the Vinedresser. 2 Any branch in Me that does not bear fruit [that stops bearing] He cuts away (trims off, takes away); and He cleanses and repeatedly prunes every branch that continues to bear fruit, to make it bear more and richer and more excellent fruit. 3 You are cleansed and pruned already, because of the word which I have given you [the teachings I have discussed with you]. 4 Dwell in Me, and I will dwell in you. [Live in Me, and I will live in you.] Just as no branch can bear fruit of itself without abiding in (being vitally united to) the vine, neither can you bear fruit unless you abide in Me. 5 I am the Vine; you are the branches. Whoever lives in Me and I in him bears much (abundant) fruit. However, apart from Me [cut off from vital union with Me], you can do nothing. 6 If a person does not dwell in Me, he is thrown out like a [broken-off] branch, and withers; such branches are gathered up and thrown into the fire, and they are burned. 7 If you live in Me [abide vitally united to Me] and My words remain in you and continue to live in your hearts, ask whatever you will, and it shall be done for you. 8 When you bear (produce) much fruit, My Father is honorued and glorified, and you show and prove yourselves to be true followers of Mine.
Jesus is all you need, not people, for help. Remain connected constantly, to the main Source of power, Jesus. He is all that matters, above all others. Other relationships that He will bring, He will be the source. Allow the pruning of the Lord when He does it.
2. Positioned. Position yourself at the right place, with the right people, at the right time, doing the right thing.
Psalm 1 (AMP)
BLESSED (HAPPY, fortunate, prosperous, and enviable) is the man who walks and lives not in the counsel of the ungodly [following their advice, their plans and purposes], nor stands [submissive and inactive] in the path where sinners walk, nor sits down [to relax and rest] where the scornful [and the mockers] gather. 2 But his delight and desire are in the law of the Lord, and on His law (the precepts, the instructions, the teachings of God) he habitually meditates (ponders and studies) by day and by night. 3 And he shall be like a tree firmly planted [and tended] by the streams of water, ready to bring forth its fruit in its season; its leaf also shall not fade or wither; and everything he does shall prosper [and come to maturity]. 4 Not so the wicked [those disobedient and living without God are not so]. But they are like the chaff [worthless, dead, without substance] which the wind drives away. 5 Therefore the wicked [those disobedient and living without God] shall not stand [justified] in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous [those who are upright and in right standing with God]. 6 For the Lord knows and is fully acquainted with the way of the righteous, but the way of the ungodly [those living outside God's will] shall perish (end in ruin and come to nought).
Where do you often find yourself positioned?
He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty [Whose power no foe can withstand].
Dwell in the shadow of the Lord, and you will enjoy His protection. God should be our dwelling place.
...and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus,
Where are you dwelling? Is it in the presence of God? Remain in the position God put you in, seated in Jesus in the heavenly places.
3. Keep speaking
It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life.
When you speak what Jesus has said, nothing will challenge that. His Words go beyond the physical, into the spiritual life, and produce life.
So Jesus answered and said to them, “Have faith in God. 23 For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.
Keep on speaking God's Word, and it shall surely come to pass.
Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.
Stop speaking things that are dead, in your life.
You will also declare a thing, and it will be established for you; So light will shine on your ways.
Wake up in the morning, and speak the Word of God. align your life and days with the Word and purpose of God, by speaking His Word.
“The prophet who has a dream, let him tell a dream; And he who has My word, let him speak My word faithfully. What is the chaff to the wheat?” says the Lord. 29 “Is not My word like a fire?” says the Lord, “And like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces?"
Keep speaking God's Word, and all hindrances will pave way for you, as you walk in and enjoy fruitfulness, in Jesus.
