The [uncompromisingly] righteous shall flourish like the palm tree [be long-lived, stately, upright, useful, and fruitful]; they shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon [majestic, stable, durable, and incorruptible]. Planted in the house of the Lord, they shall flourish in the courts of our God. [Growing in grace] they shall still bring forth fruit in old age; they shall be full of sap [of spiritual vitality] and [rich in the] verdure [of trust, love, and contentment]. Psalm 92:12‭-‬14 AMP

As a child of God, it is none of your responsibility to struggle or run after success, achievements, honors and recognition in this world. The LORD our God who had saved you and called you out of darkness into His own marvelous light has also committed Himself to make you flourish, fruitful and prosperous wherever you go and in whatever you do.

However, to experience and enjoy the benevolent grace of God that will make you great in spite of your physical location, vocation and current realities, you must as a matter of necessity maintain your union with Christ, sustain your personal communion with the Holy Spirit and walk uprightly before God.

Divine blessings are direct products of a righteous and godly living. Do not be fooled or deceived by the soothsayers of our days who assure sinners, the enemies of God the peace and the blessings of God which He gives but only to those who dare to take a stand for Him not minding the cost.

Therefore, as you progress in your pilgrimage in this new month, new week and new day, may the LORD God give you the courage  to walk, regulate and conduct your life in union with and conformity to His image, pattern and standard. May you have the roots of your being firmly and deeply planted, fixed and founded in Jesus Christ alone. Happy and Prosperous New Month!

Your brother,
