To thrive... and obey.
Jer 17: 7-8 - [Most] blessed is the man who believes in, trusts in, and relies on the Lord, and whose hope and confidence the Lord is. For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters that spreads out its roots by the river; and it shall not see and fear when heat comes; but its leaf shall be green. It shall not be anxious and full of care in the year of drought, nor shall it cease yielding fruit.*
Psalm1: 1-3 Happy [Blessed]are those who don’t listen to [walk in the counsel of] the wicked, who don’t go where sinners go[stand in the way of sinners]who don’t do what evil people do[sit in the seat of mockers]They love [delight in] the Lord’s teachings [laws; instructions]and they think about [meditate on] those teachings [laws; instructions] day and night. They are like a tree planted by a river[streams of water;full of life, strong, vibrant]The tree produces fruit in season, and its leaves don’t die [wither]Everything they do will succeed.*
Job 36: 11 - “If they listen and obey God, they will be blessed with prosperity throughout their lives. All their years will be pleasant. (NLT)
