The book of Romans tells us in chapter 8:28, “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose.”

God said you will flourish like a palm tree and grow like the cedar of Lebanon.

We have already discussed importance of the palm tree. The cedar of Lebanon is such a choice tree that it is never touched when trees are to be felled. Cedar trees are distinct amongst other trees, they are huge and very expensive, and they have rich seeds. They are not the kind of trees that are toyed with. Cedars are found in the house of very rich people.

God makes this comparisons using words like these because He is the all-knowing.

David was not aware of this fact when he wrote this in Psalm 92:12 but God, in his all-knowing capacity has the full knowledge and understanding of what He inspired David to write. God is saying to us who follow and serve Him diligently that we cannot fail. We are destined for greatness according to the eternal plan of God for His people. For you to flourish like the palm tree and grow like the cedar of Lebanon, you must be planted in the house of God as written in Psalm 92:13.

You cannot deny God just because of offenses.

Being in the house of God at the required time is a subset of being planted in the house of God. A homeless person will always feel the effect (suffering) come rain or shine because he has nowhere to hide himself. God has ordained His family and has given shelter to each family and a definition to every home.
The reward of being planted in the house of God is found in Psalm 92:13-15, they will flourish in the courts of our God. They will still bear fruit in old age, they will stay fresh and green, proclaiming, “The Lord is upright; He is my Rock, and there is no wickedness in Him.”

He says they will still bear fruits in their old age – fruit of the body, spiritual fruit and financial fruit meaning they will never lack throughout their entire life. God also says they will stay green and remain fresh. Green here proclaims the uprightness of God which is the reason the promises of God will come to pass over our lives.

Prayer: My prayer is that God the Father will distinct and distinguish me among many and let His favour be upon me wherever I go in this world Mighty Jehovah in Jesus’ mighty name.
