"But whose delight is in the law (word) of the LORD, and who meditates on his law (word) 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." Psalms 1:2-3 NIV
Yesterday we looked at how putting our trust and confidence in God was like a tree’s root system being planted beside a stream of water. A good root system brings forth good fruit. Similarly, today our verses again show the linkage between the fruit and the root.
Can you truly trust, and have confidence in someone you don’t know? To know someone, you need to spend time with them, learn what makes them tick, how they will think and react in any situation. This is no different from getting to know God. We get to know God through spending time in His word.
Have you ever wanted to know God’s will for a situation you have been facing? God’s word is His will. His word is full of amazing promises for your life: forgiveness, health, strength, victory, prosperity, protection, peace, hope, help, wisdom, success etc.
Choose to dwell on God’s promises and not the contradictory circumstances that you find yourself in, and whatever you do will prosper.
