Happy New Year!! It is my prayer that this be a great and prosperous year for you. I when I was praying about this new year the thought came to me that everything will be green in 2017. For you as an individual, for your marriage, family, business and career.
Green represents growing and blooming where one is planted. It is representative of a Christian life that produces good fruit and finds rest in Christ. Christian growth and fruitfulness is achieved by living for Christ, being directed by His will and finding peace in Him.
Green symbolizes growth, life, new beginning, rest, freshness, healing, health, prosperity, and restoration.
The LORD called your name, Green Olive Tree, Lovely and of Good Fruit. With the noise of a great tumult He has kindled fire on it, And its branches are broken.
For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters, Which spreads out its roots by the river, And will not fear when heat comes; But its leaf will be green, And will not be anxious in the year of drought, Nor will cease from yielding fruit.
But I am like a green olive tree in the house of God: I trust in the mercy of God forever and ever.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
How to Become Green (More Fruitful and Productive)
I Corinthians 12:18
But now God has set the members, each one of them, in the body just as He please.
The righteous shall flourish like a palm tree, He shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon. Those who are planted in the house of the Lord
Shall flourish in the courts of our God. They shall still bear fruit in old age; They shall be fresh and flourishing,
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.
Luke 8:15 Honest and Good Heart (Ground).
But that on the good ground are they, which in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience.
If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you. By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples.
Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.
