FLOURISHING IN THE HOUSE OF THE LORD
Psalm 92 vs
13:¶“Those that be planted in the house of the Lord shall flourish in the courts
of our God.” [KJV] |||||||||||
THE Church is God’s most single agency that seeks to build up and edify an individual wholly- spirit, soul and body. There is no such agency on earth that ensures your total edification aside the Church. *The Church is not man’s idea, but God’s idea to get you informed, inspired and transformed for His glory.* The Church is the respective soil and climate for the believer. That’s why you should stay planted where the word of God is preached, taught and applied. That is your environment for growth.
As the fish can never survive outside the water, so no man can thrive outside God’s presence. Your life can never remain the same when you genuinely attend church and listen to God’s infallible word and apply the instructions. The atmosphere of a club or classroom is not the same as the Church. And each of these atmospheres has something to offer to its occupants. And for the New Creation, God always has a different package of blessings for all those who spend precious time in His house. Our opening text unveils the truth that they shall FLOURISH in the courts of God.
To flourish means to prosper, progress, advance, vigorously grow and thrive. No one encounters fire and does not burn or feel heat. Beloved, you can’t truly be in God’s house always and not flourish. He gives His children the grace to flourish. One area you flourish is in your attitude and lifestyle. Since you have put on Christ, a constant encounter in His presence will infuse godliness in you. The Church teaches the mind and ways of God and whoever receive God’s way and mind will flourish in all his ways. Stay planted in the house of the Lord to continue flourishing. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you always.
Dear Father, thank You for the grace, strength, power and prosperity that Your presence lavish on my life. I flourish by Your ultimate presence. Today, I will be blessed and lifted from one dimension to a greater and higher level of success, glory, grace, righteousness as You satisfy my life with good things in Jesus’ Name. Amen !
Enjoy A Flourishing Sunday !
