Trees Of Righteousness
What a beautiful vision God showed me this morning of His precious Garden. The place where He first created mankind and the place He desired for us to live….And as God woke me, He also put a word of encouragement in my mouth for all those who are feeling overwhelmed by the cares of this life. I guess as we look around, many of us could be overwhelmed on any given day of the week. So much bad news, so many threats, so much terror; yes the enemy has been making headline after headline after headline. I was surprised when I got a text from my 12 year old grandson and he said, “Nana, have you ever heard of Isis?” I was startled and a bit surprised. I said, “Yes, son I have.” Then he continued, “Did you know that they are killing Christians?”
Well, needless to say, I had to explain to him about this threat and reassure Him that God was on our side. I explained that he did not have to fear because God watches over us and protects us and that we cannot allow anyone to cause us to live in fear because our God is strong in Zion! It was a big lesson for a little boy. But I believe he got it. No doubt he had heard the headlines from that evening news.
But I am so glad that God has written an Eternal Headline in Glory and we as believers must keep eyes fixed on those Words. “The Devil is Defeated and Jesus is Lord!”
Colossians 2:11-15 (KJV)
11 In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ:
12 Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead.
13 And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses;
14 Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;
15 And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.

Hallelujah!! to the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords! Worthy is the Lamb who takes away the sins of the world. Good News provokes our praise! Good News gives us Joy and Joy gives us strength. Have you ever wonder why the enemy has accelerated so much negativity in the earth? Snow storms have become “blizzards”, Ten children diagnosed with measles becomes an epidemic, and you can be sure that whatever the next breaking news may be, it will always be negative. But God says to us:
“Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness. (Is. 41:10)
He calls us, “Trees of Righteousness, the plantings of the Lord”. A tree planted by the rivers of waters. Living Waters, more than enough to sustain us during times of lack and draught….Tall enough to bless those all around and roots that run deep enough to keep us grounded through all of life’s storms!
When God plants you, the storm may rise, the billows may roar, but you will not be moved. You may bend, but beloved, you will never break. If you have one breath left in your body use it to give God Praise. You may not see your way out, you may feel that all hope is gone…but lift your voice and praise God to the highest, because He promised Victory for your life! And that promise of Victory is not just for you, but for your children and your children’s children, Glory to God!!
There is so much more that God wants to cultivate out of your life. You have so much more to give….This season may appear to be a season of decrease and lost, but it’s actually God pruning and cutting, making way for the new and the next. Your roots are finding new depth, going deeper and deeper into the thing that sustains your life; and you are about to experience your greatest area of increase..More glorious than you have ever known.
When you get a praise on your lips, joy comes into your heart…When joy comes into your heart, strength comes into your life! Don’t share the bad news….Satan wants us to talk about all the horror in the world. SHARE the Good News of Our Risen Savior! He loves us with an everlasting love and because He loves us, we have Victory through His Blood!! Hallelujah!!!
