Great words from Psalm 92

February 25th, 2012

I was reading Psalm 92 this morning in the New King James Version. It contained some great words and a great promise. Here is the part that really jumped out at me…

“The righteous shall flourish like a palm tree, he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon. Those who are planted in the house of the Lord shall flourish in the courts of our God. They shall still bear fruit in old age; they shall be fresh and flourishing” (vv.12-14).

Palm trees in Biblical times were seen as tall and majestic, while the cedars of Lebanon were regarded as strong and powerful. The example above shows just how big they are.

I really like the imagery of this passage and how it says that if we are planted in the house of the Lord we will be like them. We will be fresh and flourishing and fruitful in our old age.

It is a really great thought for today.

God Bless,
