A Shoot from the Stump


“A shoot will come up from the stump of Jesse; from his roots a Branch will bear fruit”. Isaiah 11:1

Can anything good come out of a stump? No matter how old a stump you are, God can bring forth a shoot to make you a fruit-bearing branch. God promises you a brand new beginning. He wants to make you a new person. In God, you have a chance to start afresh.

You may have done unwise things in life. You may have heeded to a wrong counsel. You may feel circumstances spilling out of your power. But our loving and mighty God wants to bless us with His spirit. He wants to fill us with wisdom and understanding. He wants to direct us in the right counsel and control. God wants to give us the spirit of knowledge.

To unlock this new beginning we need to get into right standing with God. The foundation is wearing the garment of righteousness. Jesus had laid down His life so that He can crown us with His righteousness. If we refuse to wear this crown then we will not be able to have dominion over things that have made slaves out of us. Stand in your righteousness. Be determined to obey and do whatever it is that will keep you in right standing with God. Ask the Lord to reform your foundation for life. And you will see the Lord solidify your foundation so you can walk in fullness of life.

Prayer:
Dear Lord, I receive the crown of righteousness that you have given me. I put on the garment of righteousness. With your help I will walk in the fullness of the wonderful beginning you have for me. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
