Planted in God's House
Psa 92:13 Those that be planted in the house of the LORD shall flourish in the courts of our God.
Some ground is just better than other ground for growing things. Rich, black, moist soil laden with all the right nutrients is going to be more productive than clay.
For years, middle America was known as the great American desert. It wasn't until brave, tough pioneers were willing to plant themselves on that desert and their seed in that dubious ground that we learned it would be the most productive farmland in the world!
I know that planting oneself in front of the TV or on a barstool or in the gym during church time is unproductive for the soul. This verse tells us that those who are planted in God's house are the ones that shall flourish.
Conversely, planting yourself anywhere else will cause your soul to whither.
Hebrews 10:25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.
Church, that is, a Spirit-filled, Bible-centered house of the Lord, is good ground for a flourishing life.
