But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and in His law he meditates day and night. 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.
When you make the Word of God a priority in your life, you become like a tree planted by a stream of never-ending water.
In the Bible, water symbolizes two things. First, it is a picture of the Holy Spirit, who, like water, refreshes, restores, and empowers life.
Second, water is a symbol of cleansing. The Word of God cleanses your heart.
Streams of Living Water
The word “streams” here is a symbol of overflowing abundance.” It’s the picture of a brook flowing from a spring that is crystal clear, pure, and unending.
You can’t help but think of that day in John 7 when Jesus stood and offered living water to all who would believe in Him. Or when Jesus offered living water to the woman at the well.
The streams of living water provide 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 have 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 can grow in the desert is for water to be nearby. Therefore, as you traveled through the hot wilderness, you look for trees. When you find a tree, you know life-giving water will be nearby. God planted you to show the world where they can find the source of living water.
Let’s look at that promise again,
But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and in His law he meditates day and night. 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 1:2-3
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 refreshing living water.
I overflow with living water to the world around me.
In Jesus Name,
Today, as you plant your life in the Word of God, the Holy Spirit will fill you with His refreshing living water.
