Psalm 1:3 “He is like a tree planted by streams of water,”
[Planted, put down in one spot and kept there—it seems this is the result of a cooperation between you, Lord, and the person.
My part in being planted is to avoid the three sins of verse one, and then to delight in and meditate on your Word. Then you plant me in the right spot. And not by just one stream, but streams of water to put my roots down into, to draw sustenance from them and to grow strong.
This is your good desire for us, Lord, that our roots go down into your Word, which brings deepening dependance, maximum maturing, and spiritual strengthening.
There is no end to the insights, understanding, wisdom and guidance you give us from your Word as we meditate on it. Your desires are good!]
“which yields its fruit in season”
[For the person who meditates on God’s Word day and night, when it’s time to bear fruit, you, Lord, will bring it forth. And it will be the right fruit, whether it be a specific aspect of
the fruit of the Spirit
or the fruit of praise,
or the fruit of good works,
or the fruit of those who come to Christ.
Praise you, Lord, that you make us fruitful as we abide in you, for without you we can do nothing.]
