13/21 Days of Prayer & Fasting
Psalm 1:3 (NKJV)
He shall be like a tree
Planted by the rivers of water,
That brings forth its fruit in its season, Whose leaf also shall not wither;
And whatever he does shall prosper.
Every one of us want to have good fruit in our life. We for sure want everything we do to prosper. There is a key part of this verse though that a lot of people miss. It’s that for all of the stuff we want to happen, we must remain planted. This can be an extremely difficult part of our journey. We have a tendency to get frustrated and quit, to get angry and leave, to get offended and uproot ourselves.
Some of us wonder why we aren’t seeing the fruit we want to see in our lives and the truth is, we aren’t seeing the fruit because we haven’t stayed planted long enough.
Maybe you are thinking about quitting, leaving, throwing in the towel. Can I encourage you to stay planted? You will eventually see the fruit you want to see if you just stay planted in the process God has you in.
Jesus, give me strength to stay planted in the process. Help me to stay faithful and consistent in this season you’ve called me to. I know that you are faithful and I will see the fruit if I will just stay planted in your process and continue to do what You’ve asked me to do. Amen.
