With another birthday just behind me, I am thinking about new responsibilities I have taken on. Questions come to mind - "Will I be able to lead as I need to? Will I have the energy and stamina? Am I trying to do too much?" (A problem I often have!)
I am reading through the Psalms and Psalm 92 was a recent reading. Psalm 92:12-15 holds some significant words for me. The psalmist talks about how "The righteous will flourish." Well, I am not righteous in and of myself, but because Christ lives in me and I serve Him, I am considered one of the righteous. In verse 14 the psalmist says, "They (the righteous) will still bear fruit in old age; they will stay fresh and green, proclaiming, 'The LORD is upright; He is my Rock' . . . . . ."
God is never through with us if He leaves us here on earth. He has work for us to do. I pray I will do His work and while I do His work, will bear much fruit and stay fresh and green like the palm tree and cedar tree mentioned by the psalmist.
