Thriving In The House Of God

“But I am like an olive tree, thriving in the house of God. I will always trust in God’s unfailing love. I will praise you forever, O God, for what you have done. I will trust in your good name in the presence of your faithful people.”
Psalms 52:8-9 (NLT)

Not all planting environments are the same. Amount of sunlight, average temperatures, availability of water and soil composition can have a dramatic effect on the growth of a plant. This is why David uses the illustration of an olive tree growing in the house of God. Because of a Godly environment, David is saying the olive tree, which is symbolic of you and I, thrives. This is not just existing but living life to the fullest. What David is really saying is when we live in the presence of God, we do more than just grow spiritually, we thrive. The result of thriving in the presence of God is praise and trusting Him. So, what can you do to create a environment that makes you conscious of the presence of God in your life? What can you do to make your spiritual life thrive? You can start as David did by praising God and always trusting in His unfailing love.

Lord, I come to praise You today for Your unfailing love. I trust Your leadership to guide me and help me grow in Your presence. I desire to be like the olive tree that thrives in your house.
