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.” Psalms 92:12‭-‬15 NIV

As a child of God, it is none of your responsibility to struggle or run after success, achievements, honours and recognition in this world. The LORD our God who had saved you and called you out of darkness into His marvellous 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 despite your physical location, vocation and current realities, you must as a matter of necessity maintain your union with Christ, and sustain your 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 this 4th month and a new day, may the LORD God give you the courage to walk, regulate your life and conduct in union with and conformity to Him, may you have the roots of your being firmly and deeply planted, fixed and founded in Jesus Christ and His righteousness. Good morning.

Your brother,

Olufemi Babalola
