Beloved, how are doing today? Hope you are fine? Praise the Lord! Is a beautiful day today and lines will fall in pleasant places for today in Jesus Name! Beloveth, our Lord is good; all the time! Glory be to Him for another opportunity to be everything He has made us to be! Praise the Lord!

Beloveth, did you recall our discussion yesterday on “Productivity” and “Fruitfulness”? Do you agree with me or you have another line of argument?  While the former is saying “this is ready or matured” the latter is saying “ I am bearing fruit in abundance” if we are to relate it side by side the latter is saying “causing or promoting fertility, producing useful results or benefits.

To a farmer a tree may be matured or looking healthy ready to bud but if the season comes and there is no fruit in it, the farmer will declare it unfruitful as we see in Luke account about the fig tree (Lk 13:6-9). Everybody distaste fruitlessness. It burdens the heart and weary out the victim.

Let us consider the tree in our text today, everywhere you see it or read about it “it is called the tree of the Lord” why was it so?

The Lebanon tree also know as cedar of Lebanon is an elegant trees, they grow slowly but surely. The oldest of it reaches 150 feet high with girth of over 40 feet, are around 1200 years old. The special thing about this tree is that it symbolize resilience, immortality, strength and elevation.

The bible also spoke about the tree “the trees of the Lord are watered abundantly, the cedars of Lebanon that the planted” as we see in out text today (Ps 104:16). Though the leave and wood are antiseptic and expectorant but nothing was said about this.

Beloveth, when God chose you to bless you; men will call you “favour” (Lk 1:30) as in Mary mother of Jesus. Abraham was blessed with generational blessing when he found favour before God (Gen 12:1-3), Noah (Gen 6:8), Joseph (Gen 39:2-6,21;41:39-46; 42:6; 50:19). Beloveth what about David, the shepherd boy, when favour located him, God took him from the bush to palace, He used him to deliver the children of Israel from their tormentor Goliath, our Lord Jesus came through the genealogy of David, what a favour.

Beloved are getting the understanding of God’s favour that the Lord is promising us this month. It’s not only in monetary value but blessings that money cannot buy rather through these blessings money will locate you. You will be a reference point in certain areas or in your area of influence. Praise the Lord.

Like the cedar of Lebanon which is our reference point today, the Lord will plant you and water you and you fulfill your destiny because the hand of the Lord will bring it to past. Praise the Lord!

Come along to discovery more for yourself:

“The cedars of Lebanon which He hath planted.” Psalm 104:16

 

Lebanon’s cedars are emblematic of the Christian, in that they owe their planting entirely to the Lord. This is quite true of every child of God. He is not man-planted, nor self-planted, but God-planted.

The mysterious hand of the divine Spirit dropped the living seed into a heart which He had Himself prepared for its reception. Every true heir of heaven owns the great Husbandman as his planter.

Moreover, the cedars of Lebanon are not dependent upon man for their watering; they stand on the lofty rock, unmoistened by human irrigation; and yet our heavenly Father supplieth them.

Thus it is with the Christian who has learned to live by faith. He is independent of man, even in temporal things; for his continued maintenance he looks to the Lord his God, and to Him alone. The dew of heaven is his portion, and the God of heaven is his fountain.

Again, the cedars of Lebanon are not protected by any mortal power. They owe nothing to man for their preservation from stormy wind and tempest. They are God’s trees, kept and preserved by Him, and by Him alone.

It is precisely the same with the Christian. He is not a hot-house plant, sheltered from temptation; he stands in the most exposed position; he has no shelter, no protection, except this, that the broad wings of the eternal God always cover the cedars which He Himself has planted. Like cedars, believers are full of sap having vitality enough to be ever green, even amid winter’s snows.

Lastly, the flourishing and majestic condition of the cedar is to the praise of God only. The Lord, even the Lord alone hath been everything unto the cedars, and, therefore David very sweetly puts it in one of the psalms, “Praise ye the Lord, fruitful trees and all cedars.”

In the believer there is nothing that can magnify man; he is planted, nourished, and protected by the Lord’s own hand, and to Him let all the glory be ascribed.

Beloveth, are you here with us? You see it all; he who the Lord planted nor storm or devil can remove, does that comfort you?

Hear this, things may not be the way you have wanted it but remember you are planted by the Lord and he will yet water you. Whatever is not happening now is because the time has not yet come; be still and know that He is God. I also want you to know that God is more than able to deliver (Dan 3:17) and to make whole (Lk 8:43-44).

Notice you anything in both Bible accounts? They both know their God and that bolded them to stand in Whom they believed. Another observation is that God reached out in first case while the woman reached out in the second case.

Beloveth which is your case? Ask God to help you to know exactly what to do so that His promise will manifest in your life and situation sooner. Look steadily on Jesus the Author and Finisher of your faith (Ps 27:11, Exo 33:19, 1Pet 2:6). Amen alleluia!!!

Don’t forget you are plated by the Lord and your watering will surely come, so fear not!

Remain blessed in the Lord.
