Fresh Hope – 29th August 2016

The palm tree was created to live in very very hot conditions. Conditions that you and me might physically wilt in, yet the palm tree not only survives in that environment, it flourishes.

The large cedar trees can survive in temperatures that are so cold, they would kill me and you, yet the Cedar tree not only survives in such radical temperatures, it flourishes.

I don’t know what season you feel that you’re in today, but God wants you to know that He is giving you everything you need to not only survive this season, but to actually flourish in it.

You may feel that you’re in a great season right now, or a very difficult one. Don’t just see your life as surviving another day, but God wants you to actually enjoy every step of the journey, yes, even if the conditions are not what you want them to be right now.

The Bible says He will never leave us nor forsake us, He will be with us in every and any situation. It also tells us to give thanks in every circumstance.

Take a look at your situation today and ask yourself this “am I barely surviving? Or am I actually flourishing… ?”

What ever you’re experiencing today, know that God is with you. And that He will help you to flourish and grow in your season.
