True Green

"He shall be like a tree planted by rivers of water,
that brings forth its fruit in its season,
whose leaf also shall not wither,
and whatever he does shall prosper."
Psalm 1.3

Oh, such wonderful words of promise.

The promise is not for worldly success, financial wealth, a perfect American life, or anything that we necessarily would consider happiness in our finite understanding.

The promise is for fruitfulness and prosperity in God because this man's life is planted in God. This man's leaf shall not wither. Even in times of outward drought and deprivation his roots are tapping living waters.

Oh, Lord, thank you for the reminder to dwell night and day in your word (vs. 1), to build my life upon Your word, to allow your Word to shape my every thought, to walk only in your counsel. Life abundant, verdant and fruitful, is found by the man who abides by such rivers of wisdom and truth. May such abundant portion be mine. Amen.
