Trees


Church Family,

I hope that you are having a great day so far. My Bible reading was cool this morning. I read how God described Pharaoh as being like a tree, but no ordinary tree. This tree was so tall, so big, and so fruitful that the trees from the garden of Eden envied it. Yet, the pride of the tree led to its fall and judgement.

Ezekiel 31:18 “Whom are you thus like in glory and in greatness among the trees of Eden? You shall be brought down with the trees of Eden to the world below. You shall lie among the uncircumcised, with those who are slain by the sword. “This is Pharaoh and all his multitude, declares the Lord GOD.”

God had blessed Pharaoh and all of his people. So much that He and the people grew to be bigger, stronger, and more fruitful than any other in its time. This story hits too close to home. How often do we boast in who we are, what we can do, or what we have, rather than in God? When we lift ourselves above God in this life, God brings us down for eternity. The bible says that every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Jesus is Lord. Many will do this for the first time when they get to heaven, but then it will be too late. They like Pharaoh will spend eternity below, in Hell. Turn to Jesus today. See that God is the one that blesses you. God gave you that strength, knowledge, money, power, etc.

Love, Serve, Go
