Hope For a Tree

Hello, God has given me something in Job 14:7 which says,

““At least there is hope for a tree:(A)
    If it is cut down, it will sprout again,
    and its new shoots(B) will not fail.(C)”

Tree: Job was saying that at least a tree had hope. If a tree was cut down, then it could grow again. But, if man dies then they cannot grow again. The tree can grow very strong and not whither, and when it is cut down it grows back. But man cannot do that. Job was saying he really didn’t have much hope, unlike a tree.

Christians: Christians have been saved from sins. We are no longer under the bondage to sin. But, unbelievers are still under sins. They are still captive. If you are an unbeliever, then come to the only one with a key. If you need a professional doctor, then come to Jesus. He is the best doctor ever. He holds the key to unlock your chains. So, come to Christ, and be loved. Why wouldn’t you want to come to Christ to be saved. He is mighty to save, and He can and will save you. Just ask Him to come into your heart, and He will come. He will come and He will rescue you from your sin. He will save you from hell, and from Satan. He is the one and only God, and the only one that can save you. No man or thing can save you accept Christ. So don’t go to alcohol, or psychotropic drugs. Go to Christ, and He will save you. If you are looking for something to fill your life, and nothing is, then come to Christ. Christ will fill you, save you, cleanse you, and love you. Why wouldn’t you want to come to Him?

What to do: Here is one thing that we are to do as Christians: Stand in Christ. We are weak by our selves We could never stand. But, it Christ, we can do all things (Philippians 4:13). He gives us strength. So, let’s stand firm in Christ, not by ourselves. We could never do it alone. Let’s come to Christ every day for renewal of our minds, for new strength, and for new grace. Let’s come to Him, and He will help us make it through our day. He will give us grace, and He will always be there for us.

God: God is so good, He actually gave His own son for us. Let’s praise Him! Let’s rejoice in Him, and give Him all of our love. Jesus gave His life as a perfect, holy, sinless, atoning, pleasing, sacrifice for us. He died so that we might live! Give thanks with a grateful heart! Let’s worship Him with all of ourselves. Let’s rejoice in Him, and give thanks with all our heart. Praise Him with all of you, and make a joyful noise to Him! He is our God, so let’s worship Him!

Application: How does Job 14:7 apply to us? Job said that a tree could grow back, but a man can’t. Without Christ, we would die spiritually. But, Christ makes us like trees by streams of water (Psalm 1:3). He makes us strong in Him. Even if we die physically then we will be alive in heaven. With Christ, we have hope to stay alive forever in heaven. In heaven we will have no defect. He has made us holy, and strong, so if we die physically we will sprout again in heaven, and we will live forever there with our Lord and Savior Jesus.

Prayer: Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank You for making me strong in You. Thank You for loving me. Please help me to walk and talk with You more. Please help me to rejoice in You. Please help me to grow in You, and more like You. Thank You for giving Your son for me. Thank You for saving me. Thank You for making me Your daughter. Please help me not to be proud. Please help me to be more thankful. Please give me more strength in You. Thank You for blessing me so much. Please help me to love You more. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
