O the deep, deep love of Jesus, vast, unmeasured, boundless, free! Rolling as a mighty ocean in its fullness over me. Underneath me, all around me is the current of Thy love, leading onward, leading homeward to Thy glorious rest above! We thank God for another day, for His amazing Grace and deeper Revelation. Today’s message is titled, “Flourishing under God’s Unfailing Love.”
But I am like an olive tree
flourishing in the house of God;
I trust in God’s unfailing love
for ever and ever. (Psalm 52:8 NIV)
In this world, it’s either you flourish or perish. Those who choose to dwell in the house of God will flourish like an olive tree under His Grace and unfailing love but those who choose to trust in the world perish in sin.
Brethren, the only way we can flourish like an olive tree in the House of God is by putting our trust in His unfailing love which brought Grace and salvation unto many. That trust needs to be forever and ever. Trust believes when reason tells us to doubt. Trust means staying when our senses tell us to flee for it’s not possible. Our obedience is not rooted in shifting circumstances, but it is built instead on the rock of God’s unchangeable nature. As David fled from Saul, he hid in caves, fields, and heathen cities, but his trust was always in God’s unfailing love.
Also, an olive tree cannot flourish if it does not trust the sun and soil for photosynthesis to take place. In our case, we need to trust God and His unfailing love for the process of flourishing to take place. This trust in God should be forever and ever which means whether in times of persecution, trials, temptation, happiness and all times in your life. God’s unfailing love is full of His Grace and goodness.
In all times, it is that love we must trust in because it will help us to flourish like the olive tree. No matter what the situation is, keep trusting in God’s unfailing love and at the appointed time, He will flourish you just as He did for many in the Bible. God fulfills every promise He makes to us.
Flourishing is always God’s will for you. Trust Him and be sensitive to the many ways He will speak to your heart, reminding you how much He loves you, speaking tenderly and gently to you, bringing correction when needed, giving encouragement and hope, which truly brings an awareness of His presence in your life. Experience God’s love because you are worth every nail that Jesus bore when He gave up His life for you. He loves you with an amazing love. Flourish, thrive and grow in His love!
God Bless You!
