Thankful Thursday Thought – Are You Like the Tree Planted By the Waters?

20141210085924The Word of God in Psalm 1:3 tells us, “….Whatever he does prospers.” No matter the trials, with God on your side, in due season you will bear fruit. No weapon formed against you shall prosper.

You may have troubles or difficulties along the way. Trials are inevitable. Do not be dismayed. It doesn’t mean we are immune from failure or difficulties. Nor does it guarantee we will be happy.

What the Bible means by prosperity is “when we apply God’s wisdom, the fruit (results or by-products) we bear will be good and will receive God’s approval. We are to soak up God’s Word that it may produce attitudes and actions that will honor God” (1:3). Delight in his presence. Meditate on the Word of God.

God’s Word is our source of nourishment. It feeds the soul. The more you delight in his presence, the more fruitful you are. Spend time with God. Trust Him in every area of your life. Delight in the Lord.

God I thank you for the trees planted by the water. No weapon formed against us shall prosper. When troubled, you are a present help. God, I thank you for your faithfulness. Thank you Jesus!

Are you like the tree planted by the water? If not, get an understanding. Trust God in every encounter. Bear good fruit. Trees planted by the water never fail to bear fruit.

Be blessed! -JD

Psalm 1:3 “Blessed is the man who does not walk in counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers. 2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night. 3 He is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prospers.” (NIV)
