LIKE A TREE
Job 14:7-9 ERV “There is always hope for a tree. If it is cut down, it can grow again. It will keep sending out new branches. Its roots might grow old in the ground and its stump die in the dirt, but with water, it will grow again. It will grow branches like a new plant."
As long as you do not uproot a tree, you can cut it or burn it, but it will surely grow again! I don't know what people have done to you, be hopeful, you are not about to die, there'll be a great comeback!
Water makes trees grow. And the Scripture says that we are like trees by the rivers of water! If we are by what makes us grow, then it means that we are unstoppable! Nobody can determine how big we can become! They can try to restrict us but they'll never succeed!
God is our Living Water and as long as we are connected to Him we will never fail! You've got to believe this! Even if you ever fail or have a setback, all you need is fresh water and you'll succeed again! Be positive and hopeful; you're like a tree by the river, bringing forth fruit in due season. Hallelujah!
