God's Word For Today
Read Ezekiel 47:1 through 48:35
Trees represent significant events in Christendom. In the Garden of Eden, Adam and Eve tended the trees, and this was the location of the Fall. A tree held the Savior during humanity’s redemption. In heaven, trees line the edges of a great river that flows from God’s throne.
“Fruit trees of all kinds will grow on both banks of the river. Their leaves will not wither, nor will their fruit fail. Every month they will bear fruit, because the water from the sanctuary flows to them. Their fruit will serve for food and their leaves for healing” (Ezekiel 47:12).
Trees stand as stately reminders of where people first lived, and where Christians will live. Seeing them brings hope to the believer.
If you are struggling with a difficult circumstance, take a walk outside and look at the trees. There are trees in your future that will never lose their leaves and will always bear fruit for you. Let the trees remind you of God’s love and the future He has in store for you.
Challenge for Today: Enjoy the beauty of creation, and praise the Creator.
