“The righteous will flourish like a palm tree.”
Psalm 92:12, NIV
The reason God said we’d flourish like a palm tree is that God knew we would go through difficult times. What’s interesting about the palm tree is that when it is bent over by the strong winds during a hurricane, research shows that the extreme stretching is strengthening the root system and giving it new opportunities for growth. After the storm, when the palm tree straightens back up, it’s actually stronger than it was before.
That’s what God does for us when go through difficult times. When you come out of the storm that was meant to defeat you, when you straighten back up, you’re not going to be the same. You’re going to be stronger, healthier, wiser, better off, and ready for new growth. God never brings you out the same. He makes the enemy pay for bringing the times of darkness and trouble. Your roots are going to be stronger. You’re not only going to still be standing; you’re going to be standing stronger.
That’s Freedom In Christ
As Galatians 5:1 NKJV tells us to;
Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ has made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.
+In Christ Jesus we are totally free in spirit, soul, mind and body, past, present and future.
+In Christ Jesus we are free from the world and the devil. There is absolutely nothing in this world that should keep us down.
+You may have gotten knock down with sickness, disease, financial hardship or bad relationships but you don’t have to stay down.
+I command you in The Name of Jesus! Get up! and stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ has made us free. For who the the Son set free is free indeed.
+For it is God who supplies all of our needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
Hallelujahs to Jesus!!!
