STAY BY THE RIVER by Patrick Lumbroso |
Psa 1:3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
Oh what a picture! What a picture of the child of God’s perfect harmony of with His creator, the roots of his soul fully nurtured in the Spirit of his maker. Near his God he finds divine serenity, love of purpose, lush abundance, perpetual fruitfulness, true happiness, Eden’s life returned in his heart. This is the reward of “not walking in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standing in the way of sinners, nor sitting in the seat of the scornful”; here is the perfect harmony created in the heart of the child of God having “his delight is in the law of the LORD.”
People of the world run to and fro the distance of the planet in order to find peace. Like the woman that had the issue of blood, they spend all their substance on physicians, doctors and psychologist, hoping for the peace of mind and spirit that can be obtained simply by touching the hem of His garment; do they only know that this treasure they are looking for is within the pages of their Bible? Do they know that if they daily, grab a hold of Jesus’ garment, peace will encompass and even pursue them?
When someone comes to us sharing their hearts and their problems, let us be faithful to bring them to the ‘river’. There is no other therapy, no other solution, and no other medicine. All the wisdom in the world will fail them, if we don’t bring them to the ‘river’.
Rom 10:14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?
