Morning Thought: Every plant has a certain environment in which it thrives. Some like hot climates, others cold. One species likes the shade, another the sun. You also have an environment that will cause you to flourish. Simply put, it’s in God’s presence. There’s no better place for those who are born of the Spirit. Seek to live in his presence today. “The righteous will flourish like a palm tree, they will grow like a cedar of Lebanon; planted in the house of the Lord, they will flourish in the courts of our God. They will still bear fruit in old age, they will stay fresh and green, proclaiming, ‘The Lord is upright; he is my Rock, and there is no wickedness in him’” (Psalm 92:12-15, NIV).
