Flowing The With Principles Of Nature
Reblogged from Becoming the Oil & the Wine
For there is hope of a tree, if it be cut down, that it will sprout again, and that the tender branch thereof will not cease.
Though the root thereof wax old in the earth, and the stock thereof die in the ground; Yet through the scent of water it will bud, and bring forth boughs like a plant.
But man dieth, and wasteth away: yea, man giveth up the ghost, and where is he? (Job 14:7-10)
As long as the earth last there will be seed time and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter. The day and night will never cease (Genesis 8:22).
The earth is a cycle and it will never cease.
Likwise everything that exists on the earth, including humans, is a cycle.
Time and season also revolves.
As the old proverb states, “what goes around comes around.”
Today, I am not referring to ‘Karma.’ My focus is on the natural cycle of nature.
For example, if you cut down a tree, as long as the root remains in the soil it will sprout again.
Even if the root withered in the ground when it receives water it will spring forth again.
Does the same principle applies to humans?
A man who is flourishing in prosperity if he suddenly lost all his wealth will quickly give up and die.
But, this goes against God’s principle.
The Lord said that when your root is planted by the streams of the living water of the Holy Spirit, when your root is firmly anchored in the foundation of the Lord Jesus Christ then if heat and drought comes you will not wither and die.
Instead, your leaves will remain green and you will continue to bear fruits.
For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit. (Jeremiah 17:8)
If you are knocked down by the trials of life it is only temporary because you will rise again.
The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way. Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the Lord upholdeth him with His hand. (Psalms 37:23-24)
I pray that the Lord will help us to flow with the natural principles that He established for us.
