Sunday, January 22, began the new Biblical month of Sh’vat. This month is also known as the “Month of Trees” and we will see that God is calling us to be like a tree.
Last month, we focused on growing up in the Lord. This month, we are being called to grow “down.” Like a tree, Sh’vat highlights the importance of being rooted, grounded and established in the love of God. Psalm 1 is an excellent passage to meditate on this month as we seek to be “like trees firmly planted by streams of water.”
We have a beautiful reminder this month that we can prosper in the midst of winter. In fact, it is God’s desire for us to be prosperous. How? We prosper as we abide in Him. Our roots run deeper as we meditate on God’s Word, delight in the Lord, and remember that He loves us.
