Survive: continue to live or exist
THRIVE: grow or develop well or vigorously.
Are you thriving in the word of God or merely surviving? As a sweet friend put it, “not just skimming over the top of our “required daily reading.” To drink it in, to ponder it deeply, to study it, and to OBEY IT, to be a doer of the Word, and not a hearer only.” It is my heart’s desire, prayer, and resolution to THRIVE in the WORD. May we seek The Lord God deeply and develop vigorously. May His Word be our constant source of delight and mediation day and night(Psalm 1)! May we be as that tree planted by the river of water, deeply rooted in the Word of God, trusting and hoping in Him, never anxious in seasons of “drought”, nor effected by the heat that is to come, and NEVER ceasing from yielding good fruit. May we truly THRIVE in the Lord and His Word! ❤️🙏🏼
“Blessed is the man that trusteth in the Lord, and whose hope the Lord is. For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit.” Jer 17:7-8
“But GROW in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To HIm be glory both now and for ever. Amen.“ 2 PETER 3:18
