I Shall Be Like a Tree - Song Insight

written 2002 MP3 RA WMP

This is a song of blessing, to remind me that I am under God's blessing. He is blessing my socks off. God has given me a purpose, and I am accomplishing it. And sometimes I need a reminder of that. Because, at the time when I wrote this song I was experiencing a lot of condemnation from the Devil. He was telling me that I was being a hypocrite, that I was singing and testifying of the Lord, but I was doing it all for my own glory. But I wasn't, the Devil was lying to me. I was testifying of the Lord because God was speaking through me; It was because I was obeying what God was anointing me to do. But I am still asking for more, because that is how God can work through me. His blessing is both for my personal edification, and so I can go out and encourage others.

Now for all you others out there, God is blessing you too. He is showering you with blessings. You have to receive it though. And you have to ask for blessing. It's like the prayer of Jabez...

I Chronicles 4: 10 And Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, Oh that thou wouldest bless me indeed, and enlarge my coast, and that thine hand might be with me, and that thou wouldest keep me from evil, that it may not grieve me! And God granted him that which he requested.

Jabez knew the power of blessing. He asked fervently for God's blessing on everything that he did. And my favorite part... "God granted him that which he requested."

Back a long time ago, God was having Moses lead the Israelites on a trip through the wilderness; Then they noticed that an army of Egyptians was after them. And then they noticed that there was a sea in front of them so they could not escape. But God had a plan up His sleave. God told Moses something to tell the Isrealites, so he did...

Ex 14:13 And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD, which he will shew to you to day: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen to day, ye shall see them again no more for ever.
14 The LORD shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace.

And just then an amazing thing happened, the sea opened up. So the Israelites walked on through. When the Israelites got to the other side the Egyptians came to where the sea bed was. So they though they would cross just like the Israelites. But as soon as all the Egyptians got in the sea bed, the sea closed up and drowned all the Egyptians.

Romans 4:21 And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform.

So, God doesn't back down. He will accomplish it, whatever He is blessing you with.

Proverbs 10:22 The blessing of the LORD, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it.

The Chorus is loosly based on Psalms 1.
