God’s Blessings on the Head of the Righteous
Bible Nugget 0605 [psalm 92:12-15 NKJV]
12 The righteous shall flourish like a palm tree,
He shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon.
13 Those who are planted in the house of the LORD
Shall flourish in the courts of our God.
14 They shall still bear fruit in old age;
They shall be fresh and flourishing,
15 To declare that the LORD is upright;
He is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in Him.
The desire of God is to glorify his children and distinguish them from the heathen. The heathen do not know God and therefore any prosperity they seem to have is ephemeral. It is short-lived. It is the memory or remembrance of the righteous that is blessed. Not the memory of the wicked. The above psalm powerfully reminds us that we are blessed. Blessed beyond measure. As a tree of the LORD planted by the riverside we continue to flourish even though there is famine and drought all around us. Your are a trees of righteousness. Even if things appear not to be working hang on to God and he will distinguish you. You will spring forth because God will take the Glory when you are blessed. The palm tree planted by the water has an inexhaustible source of water to keep its sap full. And a cedar tree will survive against all odds and adverse weather conditions. God’s blessings are upon your head and he will distinguish you in due time.
To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified.
