He Prunes

Every branch…that does bear fruit he prunes, that it may bear more fruit. – John 15:2

“he prunes” — God removes things that hinder fruit-bearing. It’s not a punishment. It’s actually a reward. Through the pruning process we’re being given the ability to be even more spiritually fruitful. God cuts away hinderances that drain our spiritual life, like a gardener removes anything from branches that would keep them from bearing maximum fruit.
I wonder how often we’ve mistakenly thought something was being taken away from us when it was actually God freeing us up, and giving us the ability to fulfill our ultimate purpose in being more fruitful toward Him.
