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.


 

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

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

The psalmist describes the person who delights in the word of God as a tree that produces fruit.

A healthy tree produces fruit. You can tell the condition of a tree by the fruit it bears. A healthy tree will not only produce quality fruit, but it produces a large quantity of fruit. When you have an active walk with God, there will be spiritual fruit growing in your life.

There are two types of fruit God is growing in your life.

1. The Fruit of the Spirit. As you delight in His Word, God grows the fruit of the Spirit in your life. Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control all grow in your life as a result of your following Him. These spiritual fruits grow as a natural result of your fellowship with Christ. You can’t work on being more patient, or having more joy. However, these fruits grow in your life naturally as you delight in His word.

2. The Fruit of Changed Lives. A fruitful tree produces fruit for multiplication. Every apple contains the power to grow another apple tree. An apple tree will produce enough apples to plant hundreds of trees. As you delight in the Lord, God uses you to draw others to Him, multiply the kingdom of God, and bring others to Christ. Jesus promised to make you His witness and to use you to multiply the kingdom of God.

The Psalmist said the tree produces fruit in its season. This means the tree produces fruit when it should. It doesn’t have to work and strain to produce the fruit; it’s part of the natural process. As you delight in the word of God, you will naturally produce spiritual fruit on God’s timetable.

Look at that promise 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,

I am a fruitful Christian.
God is growing the fruit of the spirit within me.
God is using me to multiply the Kingdom of God.
The fruit of my life is the changed lives of those around me.
I am producing spiritual fruit according to God’s schedule.

In Jesus Name,
Amen

Spiritual fruit is an indicator of your spiritual health. God promises that as you delight in His word, you will be fruitful.

    I believe God is helping me grow the fruit of patience. My husband has a weakness and it’s telling lies , and I naturally can’t stand liars. I have come to realize maybe the reason God put us together is for me to influence his life positively by my fruits. Thank you for this piece.

      God often brings people into our lives to teach us and make us stronger. What a great attitude toward your husband. If you haven’t gone through Praying for Him, I’d recommend you doing so. It will help you pray for your husband in new ways and it’s free – http://www.prayingforhim.com
