Daily Wisdom

Psa 1:3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in the season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.”

Everyone seeks a return on their efforts. But, the phrase “whatsoever he doeth shall prosper” does not guarantee immunity to failure of difficulties. Nor guarantee health, wealth and prosperity. What it does mean is that by applying Godly wisdom, the fruit (results of God’s work through us) we bear will be good for us and those around us. This is determined by what we take in.  “Like a tree planted by the rivers” we absorb/soak up God’s wisdom through His Word that produces actions and attitudes that honor God, and bless others. Plant yourself elsewhere (vs 1) and what is absorb can become an obstacle, not an opportunity for God’s good works.  The eternal good that comes out of our life is directly determined by where, and in what we are planted. Though man is capable of both blessing and cursing, it should not be, such does not occur in works of nature (Jm 3:10-11). Sweet waters heal and bring forth good fruit (Exo 15:25).

Be patient and bloom where you are planted; trees that grow the slowest, bear the best fruit.
