Those Little Foxes

I see little foxes gnawing on the roots of our grapevines. 
I believe many people are grappling right now with the insignificant (or not) distractions of the world.  Familiarity drives us to battle from a wordly place rather than from our kingdom personage. We take our eyes off of God, we lose our concentration, and we become frustrated or disjointed.  We breathe in the pollution of the air surrounding us and expect it to co-mingle with the breath of life.  But we must feed the breath; like the deer that panteth by the water.  The Lord wants us to live life in His abundance & to do that we must cling to our true home & it’s environment.
I perceived a vineyard with one great vine standing firm and strong, & watched the river of life flowing up and down within the trunk, but the branches were sagging, gnarled, thirsty and weary of pushing out too far from their source of nourishment.  I saw a hand come down.  It squeezed one limb until the water rushed through like a just-released dam.  Immediately it became green, budded and the leaves stood at attention, opening and facing upward.  It burst open & the life-giving water splashed on other limbs which also began to ‘come alive’ immediately bearing fruit.
Jeremiah 17:7-8
The Voice (VOICE)
7 But blessed is the one who trusts in Me alone;
the Eternal will be his confidence.
8 He is like a tree planted by water,
sending out its roots beside the stream.
It does not fear the heat or even drought.
Its leaves stay green and its fruit is dependable, no matter what it faces.

In times of the little foxes, those who trust in human beings will be impoverished and weak so they will have no strength to draw on; but those who trust in the Lord’s abundant strength have not only enough for their own needs but even for the needs of others.
