Are You Like The Tree Planted By Water?
One of my favorite trees in the forest happens to be a small obscure tree called the ironwood, sometimes called the blue beech. This tree lives out its life very close to streams and in areas where the soil stays moist continually. The ironwood is known for its strength and when you touch its trunk it feels twisted like someone flexing their muscles. This tree is a very real reminder of what the Psalmist is saying in the first Psalm.
Psalm 1:3 says, “He is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prospers.” When we are walking in the righteousness of God we are in an environment that is nurturing to our soul and allows us to put down deep roots that are sustained by God. We will bear fruit in the proper season and are able to reap the rewards of our faith because our God is faithful. Are you like the tree planted by water?
