Psalm 1: 1-3
Blessed is the man
Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly,
Nor stands in the path of sinners,
Nor sits in the seat of the scornful;
But his delight is in the law of the Lord,
And in His law he meditates day and night.
He shall be like a tree
Planted by the rivers of water,
That brings forth its fruit in its season,
Whose leaf also shall not wither;
And whatever he does shall prosper.
These verses are a powerful picture of how God wants your life to look. He wants take your experience onto a level where you aren’t struggling all the time and where life is satisfying and fulfilling.

When you are planted and established in the place that God has for you, it now becomes His responsibility to ensure that whatever river you need flows to you; whatever supply you require, it is finding its way to you: the money, the friends, the job, the opportunities – they will all be where God assigned you to be.
Secondly, you will bring forth fruit in your season. Just because you haven’t been bearing fruit as you should, doesn’t mean that you aren’t about to switch seasons. Your dry days are over. Your days of sowing much and reaping little are over. You must decree it for yourself to see it come to pass, “This is my season of fruitfulness and productivity.” Don’t be discouraged because of the last season. The season is changing.
Thirdly, you will not run out of strength before you fulfill your assignment. Your heart will not shut down and your legs will not give out before you have had a chance to complete what God sent you here to do. Declare it today, “The Lord renews my youth. As my days are, so shall my strength be.”
Lastly, you can expect whatever you put your hand to, to prosper. If you decide to branch out into something new, God will be with you and it will prosper in your hands. Even if you have never had the aptitude for it, you can excel at it, because there is such a thing as a heavenly download. You can do what you have never done before and make it succeed!
Take hold of these covenant promises today and make them yours. Go after God with all your heart and then watch as you reap the benefits.

Today I renew my decision to be wholehearted in my love for you. I want everything that you have for me and I am ready to walk in the paths that you have prepared for me. Thank you, Lord.
