Psalm 92:12-14, Psalm 1:3 The righteous shall flourish like the
palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon. Those that be planted in the
house of the LORD shall flourish in the courts of our God. They shall still bring
forth fruit in old age; they shall be fat and flourishing. *And he shall be like a
tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season;
his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
Today, we shall focus on how God has blessed us with the great fruitfulness and productivity of the palm tree. As we saw in our study yesterday, although graced with longevity, the palm tree is also very fruitful throughout its lifespan. It does not stop bearing fruit as it ages and maintains productivity throughout. Do you know that this is God’s will for your life?
In Psalm 103:5, David declared that God satisfies our mouths with good things and renews our youth like that of an eagle’s. Both on the inside and on the outside, your hope, vision, zeal and strength will be divinely renewed and refreshed. Like Caleb, even at age 85, we will still be as strong as we were at age 45, Josh.14:10-11.
The palm tree is also a very resourceful tree. There are so many products that can be derived from it. Almost every part of the tree maintains utility. That is how God has similarly programmed your life to be. Everywhere you find yourself, you will be creative and resourceful. You have limitless potential for doing good works. You are a light and solution everywhere you find yourself. The palm tree also stands out and dominates, regardless of where it is planted. It is hard to see other trees around the palm tree. In the same way, you will also stand out wherever you find yourself. Your creativity and fruitfulness will cause you to stand out and maintain great influence wherever you find yourself.
I am blessed and fruitful, even in my old age. God satisfies my mouth with
good things and my youth is renewed like the eagle’s. I am bountifully
resourceful and creative wherever I find myself. I provide solutions, I stand
out and I have great influence.
