The Fountain Day 6: Unthwarted Success

I feel the burgeoning bud of success throbbing within the confines of my heart.  I feel marked for “more.”  I feel that everything I truly put my hand to is successful.  Today, Lord I come before You and ask that You would remove any and everything from within me that would eschew success.  Any kind of self-defeat, self-loathing, false humility, poverty spirit, shame, guilt or anything else that would rob me of the success and advancement You have set aside for me, must be gone now in Jesus’ name.  I reach past all family lines and break through all generational curses in my bloodline and I grasp onto the Vine.  The One that I have become grafted into.  I no longer live from an earthly generational line.  I am one with You.

I am the true vine, and my Father is the Gardener.  He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit He prunes so that it will be even more fruitful.  You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you.  Remain in Me, and I will remain in you.  No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine.  Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in Me.  I am the vine; you are the branches.  If a man remains in Me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from Me you can do nothing.  If anyone does not remain in Me, he is like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned.  If you remain in Me and My words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given you.  This is to My Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be My disciples.  John 15:1-8

If I remain in You, then I am assured to have unthwarted success in all I do.  I will bear fruit in any season when I walk closely with You. 

Remove all doubt from within me.  I can do every single thing You ask of me.  I will accomplish ALL You have planned for me.  You are the One Who makes the crooked places straight.  God give me a plumb line into Your heart.  Keep me so centered upon You that I am no longer distracted by the world.   Awaken my spirit to know Your plans for my life.  Expand my mind to receive the height, depth and width of Your desires for my life.  I know sometimes I struggle to follow You because where You are leading me seems far too good to be true.  Yet, other times Your plans are so far out of the box that my mind struggles to see so far off the beaten path.  I surrender to You, my idea of success.  I surrender to You my ideas for the future and ask that You would breathe into my mind, clear out the fog and let me see clearly into Your ideas.  You say, I have the mind of Christ…So let me see.  Let me see what You see.  Give me a glimpse through Your eyes.  I am desperate to move further into Your kingdom.  I am consumed with desire to dive into the deepest place within Your heart that I can.  Don’t leave me wanting, Lord.  Come and pull me under.  Take me to places that I don’t even know exist.  You are so infinite that I know so much of You has yet to be discovered.  Reveal Yourself to me.  I long to know you better and better.  In Jesus’ name, Amen.
