40 DAYS – Time with God – Day 39
God is Trustworthy
by Noelene Curry
Have faith in God, Jesus answered, Fig trees are a source of food in Israel. It takes three years from the time they are planted to when they bear fruit. The figs are harvested twice a year, in late spring and early autumn. It was early spring, when Jesus walked past the fruit tree. The tree was full of leaves. However, figs only grow as the leaves grow. There was no growth in the leaves, therefore no fruit would be produced that year. If we are not bearing fruit, we are spiritually barren, though we have been given everything to bear fruit. God is trustworthy. Let us not be cursed for not trusting in what is given us, lest we wither, and die. Our God is and will always be trustworthy, let our leaves bear much fruit.
