[The Glory Unveiled]
The righteous will flourish like a palm tree, they will grow like a cedar of Lebanon; ( Psalms 92:12 )
Palm-trees are one of the most wonderful trees in the world. Every part of a palm-tree is fruitful and profitable to some end. For instance, the branches are used for brooms, the fronds are used for fences and buskets. The palm nuts are used for palm nut soup and red oil while the kernel is used for making palm kernel oil. The hard nut around the kernel is used for soap. The residue from the palm nut is used to set fire. Even when you fell a palm tree, you can extract palm wine from it. And when a palm tree decays, we get mushrooms from it. In today’s meditation, the Psalmist says that the righteous will flourish like a palm tree. Having understood the qualities of a palm tree, we will realise that, when we align ourselves with Christ by faith in Him (righteousness), we naturally flourish in every aspect of our lives and ministry. Every aspect of a palm tree contributes something to man. The believer must contribute to the world. No wonder the world travails in wait for the sons of God (Romans 8:22). We must reveal our light to the world so that no man walks in darkness.
Prayer_Bead: Jehovah Jireh, I thank you for Your word of truth and for making me a fruitful palm-tree. I affect my environment with the blessings with which You bless me today and everyday.
