A friend gave me a devotion today that she had copied from one of her books. It was in reference to Isaiah 5:1-7, regarding the Song of the Vineyard. In the passage, the author laments the fact that he has tended to his vineyard, yet it produced sour grapes. He is comparing the vineyard to Israel and his futile attempts to encourage the people to turn back to God. However, God will prune us as people in order that we may produce abundant fruit. The devotion ends with, “Rest in His care today. Trust Him…He’s even more committed to your abundance than you are.” It was thoughtful for her to share the beautiful message and reminder of God’s everlasting grace.
I Found God today in a thoughtful friend.
