Psalm 92:12-13 The righteous will flourish like a palm tree, they will grow like a cedar of Lebanon; planted in the house of the Lord, they will flourish in the courts of our God. (NIV)
To Flourish means to grow vigorously, boom, thrive, make a steady progress; be at the high point in one’s career.
The decisions you make will determine whether your life can Flourish or not. A Flourishing life is a Blessed life.
Jeremiah 17:8 says, for he shall be like a tree planted by the waters, which spread out its roots by the rivers.
This text draws a clear contrast between a person who trust in the Lord and one who does not. Through His word God has laid out distinction between the consequences of following Him and following our own way. At the foundation of both is a decision. In Deuteronomy 30:19 this decision is laid out in black and white. Life or death, blessing or cursing…. Therefore choose life so that you and your descendants may live.
Just like tree, if we are to flourish and produce fruit we have to have our roots down in order to receive regular nourishment, you must be establish in a local Church where you can receive guidance, encouragement and thrive in your gifts and talents.
Stay rooted by being connected with others in your local Church and to invest your time and energy there. Putting your roots down deep. Psalm 92:12-13 The righteous will flourish like a palm tree, they will grow like a cedar of Lebanon; planted in the house of the Lord, they will flourish in the courts of our God.
Stay planted don’t uproot yourself during challenges. If you continually uproot and plant a tree, it won’t be long before that tree begins to wither and die.
Choose life and position yourself for Blessing!
