HOW DO I LOVE THEE – PSALM 92 (PT 12 con’d)

I am unable to move past the word “planted” in verse 13.

I considered what it is to be planted in my last post, but  planted is also an action.  I began meditating (as I garden) on planting and God.

My favorite verse, some call it a ‘Life verse’, is :   And the Lord God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed. Gen 2:8.  This is the first mention in the Bible of the term ‘planted’, and it was God’s doing.

Perhaps staying planted is something we must be participants in, as I commented on in the last post, but God Himself is the One Who implements the planting.  This is true that He orchestrates all that brings us to be a part of a local church, where we should remain planted in the Word and in our Christian lifestyle.

Psalm 1 illustrates a prosperous Christian as being planted in the place of blessing. Further, Romans 6:5 says, For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection:  All these “planted“s are initiated by God.

The last mention, also significant, is one that we are called to perpetuate, where the Apostle Paul is speaking of sharing the Gospel:  1 Cor. 3:6 I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase.
