GROW WHEN ROOTED IN GOD’S HOUSE

NOVEMBER 26, 2022 / DAY 6#

TODAY’S RHEMA

Psalms 92:13-14 “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,”

Every believer must have the desire to grow and bear fruit. But in reality, many of God’s children struggle or never grow up. Years passed, and there was no significant development in their lives. Their faith goes up and down like a roller coaster game. Under these circumstances, it would be tough for God’s children to experience growth, let alone bear fruit.

Like potato plants grown in the lowlands, tuber growth will not be as maximal if planted in the highlands. We will only grow optimally if we are planted in the right place. The most appropriate place for us to grow and continue to bear fruit in all seasons is when we are planted in the House of God. We will sprout, and even in old age, we will still be productive in producing sweet fruit.

Take a commitment to be rooted in the local church. Not just regular planting, but start to follow the Spiritual Growth Scheme completely and participate in the ministry. Do not think that service is unimportant and troublesome because serving God brings excellent gifts into our lives. There will be a gift of distinction for those of us who worship, are planted, and choose to be children of God who serve the Father and, at the same time, our LORD. We will also have healthy spiritual families and communities who support and strengthen each other so we can grow in grace. (JB)
