Psalms 1:3 3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. (KJV)

There are several things we must look at in this verse to understand it and apply it to ourselves.  The first is what it means by “rivers of water.”  In that area, rivers of water were dry water beds that only occasionally had water rushing down them.  Because of that, the trees had very deep roots.  We also must have very deep roots.  Our roots must be deep in the written word, the Holy Bible, and deep into our 2-way open, conversational relationship with God.  We must also note the leaves on these trees don’t wither.  They remain on the tree year round, regardless of how much water is or isn’t in the dry river bed also known as a “wadi.”  The fruits of the Holy Spirit which God has grown in us must never wither whether in wet season or dry season.  We all go through what we falsely call as “dry times.”  The only thing dry about those times is our lack of understanding of the ever-present Holy Spirit within us.  When we learn to stay plugged into the Bible and to our conversations with God there can be no really dry time.  As long as we’re plugged in, whatever we do shall always prosper because it is not us doing it but God working and speaking through us.  Let’s be sure our roots go down deep so the fruit God chooses to bring through us will be able to come forth in God’s timing.
