Tree of Righteousness

[Thursday, March 22]

“The Spirit says that nothing can hold you, nothing can keep you bound. Listen to My counsel this day and I shall make you like a planted tree, and the fruit of your righteousness will overtake all that would hold you captive!”

Prophetic Scripture:

And he shall be a like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper (Psalms 1:3).

Sometimes we get overwhelmed by our own shortcomings. Even the most dedicated Christians have times when they feel like their failures outweigh their successes. A key principle for overcoming that sense of failure is found in a sermon by John the Baptist in Matthew 3:8 when he said, “Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance.” He was saying to begin developing character traits that reflect true repentance. Of course, fruit growth doesn’t happen all at once. It grows over time, but what makes it successful is the right environment.

The right environment for us to bear good fruit comes by staying in God’s Word (see Ps. 1:1-2). His Word will cause us to live according to His counsel, which will develop a stable spiritual root system. With that in place, fruit will grow! Ask the Lord to reveal counsel from His Word today and let it create the environment for fruit-bearing in your life. Watch as the multiplied growth of that fruit gradually begins overtaking all the negatives that have held you back before and your successes start outweighing your shortcomings!


Father, I make a fresh commitment to stay close to Your counsel so that fruit will grow in my life. Help me be a fruit-bearing Christian. I thank You that I am able to overcome every bondage that would hold me down! In Jesus’ Name! Amen.
