Flourish Like Grass
You will see, you will rejoice, and you will flourish like grass; then the LORD’s power will be revealed to His servants, but He will show His wrath against His enemies.
Our faith may be foolish to those close to us, especially when our circumstances arestressful or challenging. If people look only at our circumstances to judge our God, they will be easily deceived. How we respond to unfavorable circumstances reflects our faith, and God’s response to our faith is what reveals His glory.
God’s blessing enables us to flourish like grass, which grows so quickly in the spring and summer that it must be cut weekly. Indeed, God’s power brings blessing to the righteous and judgment to the wicked. Eventually, God makes it clear what is pleasing to Him as He brings His people through fiery trials and shows His wrath against His enemies. While none of us may deserve His blessing, we can’t function without it. We must lose ourselves and be found in Christ to fully experience all the wonder God has in store for us.
Hold on to your faith in the midst of struggling times. God’s word will prevail. Regardless of what your circumstances may say at the moment, one touch of God’s favor can flood you with blessings that distinguish you as a child of God and set your enemies in a tailspin. Cling to Christ, trust in His word, and know that God’s power will be revealed wherever His word is trusted and feared. He will show Himself faithful and true, and the Devil will be made a liar once again.
Have a blessed day!
