TREES OF RIGHTEOUSNESS
“And he will be like a tree firmly planted [and fed] by streams of water, which yields its fruit in its season; its leaf does not wither; and in whatever he does, he prospers [and comes to maturity].”
PSALM 1:3 AMP
There are numerous instances in the Bible where we can find the word ‘trees’. From the book of Genesis talking about the trees in the Garden of Eden which are the tree of the knowledge of good and evil and then the tree of life are all recorded on the Bible.
We can learn some lessons from trees and I would love to share some of those lessons with you today.
Isaiah 61:3 (NLT) says
…they will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the LORD for the display of his splendor.
We are trees of Righteousness and we are the plantings of the Lord. However, this name is not given to everyone. There are conditions…
Psalm 1:1-2 makes it clear that those that will be like a tree planted by the rivers of waters are those who DO NOT walk in the counsel of the ungodly.
It is simple. If your company is right, your tree will produce good fruit. A seed planted on a rocky soil will produce NOTHING! Who do you associate with? They have huge influence on your life.
No one likes a tree that doesn’t produce anything. When Jesus saw that the fig tree produced nothing, He cursed it. Jesus also says that a tree that does not produce good fruit will be cut down and thrown into fire.
If you have surrendered yourself to the Lord Jesus, then, you have been planted in God. If you are not, you are taking a huge risk with your life.
The fruit that is expected to be seen in the life of a believer are stated in Galatians 5:22.
I decree into your life that from today, because you are a tree of Righteousness and the planting of the Lord, you will begin to produce fruits according to your nature in Christ in Jesus name.
It’s a blessed day for you!
Pray the prayer written above. Pray it earnestly.
“A tree is known by its fruit; a man by his deeds. A good deed is never lost. He who sows courtesy reaps friendship and he who plants kindness reaps love.
