Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers, but whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on his law day and night. That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither — whatever they do prospers.
– Psalm 1:1-3
There’s something so powerfully inspiring about trees. They enable planet earth to breathe new oxygen, yet for as long as men and women have walked the earth they have provided timber for homes and warmth for every winter since our Genesis beginnings. Trees are a spectacular part of God’s creation.
When our delight is in pursuing God’s law of love and grace, we are like a tree planted firmly by streams of water. Water in the Bible is symbolic of the presence of the Holy Spirit and our desire should be that the fruits of the Spirit are seen in our lives with every new season. That’s what real prosperity is… its not about becoming wealthy and influential and successful in the world’s eyes. It's about knowing who you are in Christ and living every day honouring Him. His laws are profoundly simple; Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul and mind and love people as much as you love yourself. I like that!
