I like to think of the word ‘verdant’ as something that is lush, rich, flourishing, green, fruitful, and thriving. Is that how your heart is in your relationship with the Lord?
Psalm 92:12-15 is how I want my life to be. It says, “The righteous shall flourish like a palm tree, he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon. 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.”
Our trials hone our heart. They remove the superfluous so that we can thrive. I want to say with the writer of Psalm 119:10, “With my whole heart I have sought You; oh, let me not wander from Your commandments.”
Verdant verses uncultivated and barren. What a contrast! As we walk in His promises and apply His truths, we are walking through verdant fields, singing praises to Him who alone is worthy!
Father, I thank You for choosing each one of us. Thank You for Your unconditional love that will never be removed no matter what our situation is.
Thank You for each one who has read this blog. May their lives be a verdant field that bears You much fruit. May You be continually glorified through their lives. I ask this in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
