Psalms 1:3 (NKJV)
“He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season…”
Your location determines your fruition. If I practice the keys to blessedness, then I will be located where God can reach me. If I don’t practice the basic principles to blessedness, then my location will be ‘beyond’ the reach of God and no matter whatever else I do in the spiritual life, I will be a parched and dejected life.
Those who practice the simple keys to blessedness are located by the Rivers of God. Their roots go deep into the Waterbed of God. They are in constant contact with the Source of all blessings. They don’t come in and go: they are planted in the Waters of God and they drink to their fill from the Streams of God. The first and primary way to identify the blessed man, therefore, is to search out his location. When you find him, you will discover that he is located in God and drinks deep from God and doesn’t keep moving away from God but is rooted in God. Where are your roots located? Are you drinking deeply?
‘What more can I desire but to be always so rooted. My blessings are not first of all in the physical things of life but in the location of my spirit. Lord, that’s my only cry: never let my roots leave your presence and never let life take me away from your waterbed. For the blessed life is first of all being with you. Everything else is secondary and must be considered secondary in priority’.
