I have planted you as oaks of righteousness in good and fertile soil. You will take root and grow in a spacious place where living water abounds. You will be nourished through My word and cultivated by My hand. You will grow up alongside others in the remnant, operating in might and strength with the holy fear of the Lord. You will be deeply grounded on a Biblical foundation so that when the earth shakes, you will not topple or fall. You will grow strong and tall, reaching to the heavens with a message of hope and restoration for a hurting world. You will lift your branches to the sun to receive renewed energy and stamina every morning. I will be the one who makes you grow and fills you with the goodness of the land. You don’t need to fear what is happening around you because I will be the one who sustains you in times of lack. Put your trust in Me and I will establish you in a secure place.
To all who mourn in Israel, he will give a crown of beauty for ashes, a joyous blessing instead of mourning, festive praise instead of despair. In their righteousness, they will be like great oaks that the LORD has planted for his own glory.Isaiah 61:3 (NLT)
I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all this through him who gives me strength.Philippians 4:12-13 (NIV)
