Though my circumstances may not improve - and perhaps have led me to be even more disheartened, I know that as long as I remain close to Him, in His word and constant prayer, I know that I'm walking in His Presence. It is God that harvests the Spirit's fruit within me.
But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these things! Galatians 3:22-23 (NLT)
I cannot harvest this fruit on my own because He alone is the source. I cannot experience His spiritual "nutrition" if I am not near Him to receive it.
How amazing it is that He can produce such sweet fruit in us when our circumstances can at times be so bitter.
John 3:8 | Galatians 5:16-26
