I am the vine, ye are the branches. John 15.5.

Once a brother expended great effort in seeking for victory. He acknowledged that in spite of his constant asking, God had not given him victory. One day he read Christ’s words in John 15.5: “I am the vine, ye are the branches.” Instantly he received light. He knelt and prayed: “I am the most foolish person in the entire world. The victorious life which I seek is actually something I have already possessed. You are the branch, Jesus said, and not that you shall become a branch.” For many years he asked to be joined to the tree like a branch, not realizing that he was already a branch joined to the tree. Not till then did he receive the revelation of God, and have real faith. Later he said this: “I was defeated, so I sought for victory; but victory never came. But on the day I believed, victory did come.”
