Today’s Promise

Psalm 1:3

He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water, Which yields its fruit in its season And its leaf does not wither; And in whatever he does, he prospers.


 

This verse contains five promises from God. We are looking at a different promise each day.

The person who delights and focuses on the Word of God will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water.

In the Bible, water symbolizes two things. First, water for drinking is a picture of the Holy Spirit. He sustains, refreshes and empowers your life. Second, water for washing is a picture of the Word of God. The Word of God cleanses your heart.

The word “streams” here, means an overflowing abundance.” It’s the picture of a brook flowing from a spring that is crystal clear, pure and everlasting.

When your life is planted by streams of water, you have an abundant supply of spiritual nourishment and cleansing. You will never tap dry the power of the Holy Spirit and the Word in your life.

When you are planted by an unending stream of water, you never worry about a drought. As your roots dig deep into the word of God, you will flourish and grow when those around you are fainting.

The only way a tree could grow in the desert was for water to be nearby. Therefore, as you traveled through the hot wilderness, you looked for trees. When you found a tree, you knew life-giving water would be nearby. God has planted you to show the world where they can find the source of living water.

Let’s look at that verse once again,

He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water, Which yields its fruit in its season And its leaf does not wither; And in whatever he does, he prospers. – Psalm 1:3

Confess this with me.

God has planted me firmly by streams of water.
His spirit is refreshing and empowering me.
His Word is cleansing me.
In times of stress and drought, I have a constant supply from the Father.
I am a beacon, showing the world where the giver of life can be found.

In Jesus Name,
Amen
