He is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither. In all that he does, he prospers. --Psalm 1:3
Over the past week, we’ve been looking at what a true man or woman of God looks like. We’ve seen there are awesome benefits to planting yourself by the life-giving water of Jesus Christ, including stability, vitality, and productivity.
Today we’ll see that a true man or woman of God exhibits consistency and maturity.
“Its leaf does not wither” speaks to consistency. It means you won’t burn out! Your leaves will not dry up… your fruit will not wither… you will be forever green.
There's nothing more pleasant and powerful than a strong, stable, solid man or woman of God…. someone who lives the life they profess.
Then in the verse above we see that all the man or woman of God does prospers or matures. This means there will be maturity in your family life… in your business life… in your social life… in your personal life… and in your witnessing life.
As you look at your life today, does it exhibit the qualities of stability, vitality, productivity, consistency, and maturity? It is my prayer that God will help you continue to grow in each of these important areas of life!
