The Righteous Will Flourish

Ps.92:12 The righteous will flourish like a palm tree, they will grow like a cedar of Lebanon; 13 planted in the house of the LORD, they will flourish in the courts of our God. 14 They will still bear fruit in old age, they will stay fresh and green, 15 proclaiming, “The LORD is upright; he is my Rock, and there is no wickedness in him.”

God blesses those who love Him and who walk in His way – the way of righteousness. Just as He has made us the righteousness of Christ, He has also called us to walk righteously. No one who is made righteous and who chooses to continue to live in sin and darkness pleases the Lord. The Lord is full of grace and truth, loving and righteous, merciful and holy at the same time! It’s not “either-or”, it’s “both-and”.
