Planted in God’s house


Psalm 92:13:  Those that be planted in the house of the Lord shall flourish in the courts of our God.

Everyone who is planted in the house of God shall flourish in the courts of God.  We cannot expect to flourish in the tabernacle of God unless we are planted there.  Our roots should be firmly established in the house of God.

God loved us so much that He could not bear to see us planted outside the church, meaning being planted in the world and rooted and firmly established in worldly pleasures and passion.  He loved us so much that He uprooted us from where we once were and grafted us in the church.  He planted us in His church so that we will be nourished and cherished by His word.  He began to water and take good care of us by His word again.  He prunes us as needed and helps us grow into the right plant that we were created to be.  He expects us to bear good fruits at the proper season. He waits and adds manure just to ensure that we have the right amount of food that is needed to grow up and be tall like all the other plants, fresh and evergreen.  Those that are in the church and those that are in the world all have equal amount of challenges and pressure in life, but the difference between the two kinds of people are one group is in planted in the house of God with godly nourishment while the other group is planted outside with worldly food and ideologies.  Saints will be encouraged and strengthened by God to withstand and undergo all kinds of tests so that they come out stronger.

If you want to flourish in the courts of God or in the tabernacle of God, it is better for you to get planted in a place of worship and adoration to God where God is the source of all strength and power.
