March 3rd – psalm 92:14

Psalm 92:14

In a world that searches endlessly for the fountain of youth, God assures us His blessings aren’t reserved for the young. As long as we continue to walk with the Lord and seek His will, no matter our age we can bear fruit and be effective workers in His kingdom.  Because even if we aren’t physically able to serve the Lord, we can be examples to others by bearing the fruit of, “love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.” (Gal. 5:22). Bodies grow old and frail, but no physical infirmity can stop the Spirit of God from working in and through us. And those who walk in righteousness, God promises will “flourish like the palm tree“, “grow like a cedar in Lebanon“, and the most wonderful of all, be “planted in the house of the Lord.” There we will “flourish in the courts of our God“, and be “full of sap and very green“.
