Your made to thrive

“The righteous shall flourish like a palm tree, He shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon…” Ps. 92:12

I like to say that the good news Jesus preached is not true if it doesn't have the power to heal, deliver, bless and prosper you. Jesus came "preaching good news to the poor" (and the rich too). He assured them all “If your Father feeds the birds, how much more will He feed you who are priceless to Him? And if He clothes so gloriously the flowers of the field which live for a few days, how much more will He clothe you, oh you of little faith? Those who seek My kingdom and My righteousness, shall have all these added to them and much more!” You see, the cedar and the palm are majestic, evergreen trees who live very long lives. Yet they live in almost opposite places of the Middle East; the palm thrives in the sunny, hot deserts while the cedars grasp the snowy mountain heights. They are both a picture of the righteous. So whether you live in a slum shack or an upscale mansion, its key to know that this righteousness is not about cleaning yourself up or being moral; its simply about receiving the righteousness of the Son of God as a gift given freely for you. This is good news because it means as a righteous man or woman, God has blessed you so that you shall thrive greatly, no matter how low your position in life is now. So seek His righteousness and receive it everyday. I tell you, He loves to see you, His child, taking this gift and then rising far above what you could ever imagine and become a blessing to many!!
