Planted for Purpose
Psalm 1:1-3 Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers, 2 but whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on his law day and night. 3 That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither— whatever they do prospers
Hey! Hi and hello my Friend!!!!!! My spirit is leaping for joy right now concerning us and our purpose. Read that passage again so the word can get in your spirit, and I hope after doing so you’re excited about getting P.R.E.T.T.Y. I want us to be excited about the word, and how it is living, and how it gives us cause to live life more abundantly. Guess what water is representing as it pertains to us walking in purpose? It represents the life-giving source that is Christ. Just like a tree planted near the water, we must be as eager to drink up the things of God. We must want to grow as a believer and grow in the place where God has planted us. In Matthew Henry’s Commentary he says so wonderfully, “Never any good tree grew of itself; it is the planting of the Lord, and therefore He must in it be glorified.” So here we see the recurring theme of doing it all for the glory of God. What a joy that is! Just being around that water would prick your spirit and cause you to flourish by championing you to start walking in His purpose or make you rethink where you are planted in His purpose. A few weeks ago, for Tuesday Talks, I was speaking to my Purpose Group about getting to spaces in which God has placed a desire for you to work. We need to stay encouraged to go, do, and be everything God is calling us to so that He may be glorified and praised. All signs point back to Christ, and we see those signs by the fruit our trees bear when it comes time for the harvesting season. And when the time of harvest has passed and our branches give the appearance of being bare, we can rejoice knowing full well that our roots are planted deep and stretch out to the living water of that magnificent stream. Those deep roots have been nourished by the word of God and the branches have been cultivated by the meditation upon scripture which we have been commanded to do daily. So, sis, friend, pretty girl what is the purpose God has planted in you, and more importantly, what purpose has he planted you for? We know it is to bring Him glory and we know it is to point others back to Him. When we operate our gifts, works, and talents according to His kingdom, then whatsoever we do as it pertains to the things of Christ shall always prosper. Til' next time!
