Today's reading: Psalm 92:1-15

The closing verses of Psalm 92 describe beautifully what our lives can and should look like as we live for God. The words put forth by the psalmist are so rich and expressive that I was able to immediately visualize and imagine myself as one of these healthy, flourishing trees. My heart was particularly drawn to the words of verses 13-14.

"They are planted in the house of the LORD; they flourish in the courts of our God. They still bear fruit in old age; they are ever full of sap and green..."

As I considered this illustration and what it represents, some of the words that came to my mind were: healthy, thriving, active, producing and growing. What an encouragement to know that God wants and expects us to actively serve Him all the days of our life.

Take a few minutes to read back through and consider verses 12-15. What do these verses mean for you personally? What does being "planted in the house of the Lord" convey to you? What encouragement did you draw from verse 14 regarding bearing fruit and being "ever full of sap and green"? Tami
