The Planting of the Lord

When the storms come, it is vital that we know where we are and what we are. Song of Solo mon says we are a garden that is enclosed, a spring that is shut up, and a fountain that is sealed. What a great place to be! The next verse says, "Thy plants are an orchard of pomegranates, with pleasant fruits."

Every seed in a pomegranate reproduces another pomegranate. So, the believer who is hid with Christ in God will bring forth much fruit. Therefore, we must not sow the Word of God in thorns. "Break up your fallow ground, and sow not among thorns" (Jeremiah 4:3).

My life is sealed, my spring is shut up, and my garden is enclosed; it is the Lord's garden, the Lord's spring, and the Lord's fountain. When He died, He paid for every sin, every wrong thing, so there cannot be any charge to God's elect (Romans 8:33). Now there is no condemnation, no separation, and there is only one place for us to grow. We are like "trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD" (Isaiah 61:3).

A tree just grows straight up. There is not a single thing between the tree and God but the air and the sky. As trees of righteousness, we stand upright toward God, and we walk tall to glorify God.
