Standing firm like a flourishing tree planted by God’s design
This mediation comes as a Lectio Divina (to know more see my blog explaining what this is entitled What is Lectio Divina?
What delight comes to the one who follows God’s ways! He won’t walk in step with the wicked, nor share the sinner’s way, nor be found sitting in the scorner’s seat.
2 His pleasure and passion is remaining true to the Word of “I Am,” meditating day and night in the true revelation of light.
3 He will be standing firm like a flourishing tree planted by God’s design, deeply rooted by the brooks of bliss, bearing fruit in every season of his life. He is never dry, never fainting, ever blessed, ever prosperous.
4 But how different are the wicked. All they are is dust in the wind— driven away to destruction!
5 The wicked will not endure the day of judgment, for God will not defend them. Nothing they do will succeed or endure for long, for they have no part with those who walk in truth.
6 But how different it is for the righteous! The Lord embraces their paths as they move forward while the way of the wicked leads only to doom.
These questions may be helpful:
Where do I feel rooted and flourishing in my life right now?
Where do I feel dry and in need of change?
Am I being invited to make any changes in order to flourish?
What is God offering me through these words?
