Agriculture was so important during the times that the Bible was written, and still is today. Failing crops, drought, and famine could cripple entire kingdoms in Biblical times, so comparisons to crops and trees are particularly useful. Trust in God and you will grow; this trust will spread roots that spread deeply, strengthening the trust when water is scarce. Your trust in God will bear fruit that others may have, spreading your trust to others around you. The metaphor made perfect sense at the time it was written and still makes perfect sense today.
What does it mean to seek the LORD, His strength, and His face continually? That is certainly something worth praying about. The LORD is worthy of being sought after day and night. He is good, mighty, true, and beautiful. The best way to seek the LORD is to pray, go to Church, and read the Bible.
LORD, I will seek Your face. You are strong and mighty. I place my trust in You. God, help me to seek You daily. Give me the endurance to finish the course You have set out for me. Remind me of You when I see Your creation like trees, the moon, the sea, and wildlife. Thank You that Your beautiful creation surrounds me and that there is so much to remind me of You. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
