The Key to Keep Flourish and Be Fruitful (Morning)

TODAY’S RHEMA

Psalms 92:13-15 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, To declare that the LORD is upright; He is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in Him.

After five years of faithful service, Bob usually boasts his achievements. He rarely misses his company sales targets. He’s respected by both his colleagues and his rivals. But without notice, his company, from which he helps expand, sends him to another country. This left a huge question mark: did his employer just demoted him? He thinks about resigning from his position as a way of protesting, but he doesn’t sure. He reverts to his old former self before: a hard-working Bob, starting again from zero. A Bob that the whole firm knows.

Months after, he struggles to maintain his reputation. After a year, his struggles finally takes shape. His post’s sales skyrockets. Even better than his previous posts. After seeing his hard work, his company gives him a generous promotion: vice president of his region, an impossible feat if he stays in his former post especially if he resigns.

His decision to stay and let Him do the job bear sweet fruit. This must apply to us as well, to be deeply rooted, flourishing, and be fruitful in His courtyard. Our situation may contradict our expectations, making us want to quit and uproot ourselves. A healthy and big plant never uproot itself. It stands still for decades, centuries, or millennials deeply rooted in one place. This is why we must root ourselves in His courtyard.
