Life of a Tree -Torah Life!
These pictures were taken in Seguin. They reminded me of many beautiful Scriptures about trees. Torah is likened to a tree of life in Proverbs 3:18 -" 'She' is a tree of life to those who lay hold on her;" The subject "she" refers to wisdom (see verse 15) and Wisdom can also be translated as Torah. Torah is the teachings, commandments and precepts of YHWH that HE has provided to us to teach us how to walk in HIS ways and to know HIS Will. When you make Torah a part of your life, your life becomes a part of HIM and HIS plans. If you have no Torah, you are part of those that are "lawless" or Torah-less and you have no place in Him.
"Most blessed is the man who believes in, trusts in, and relies on Elohim, and whose hope and confidence Elohim is for he shall be like a tree planted by the waters that spreads out its roots by the river; and it shall not see and fear when heat comes; but its leaf shall be green. It shall not be anxious and full of care in the year of drought, nor shall it cease yielding its fruit." Jeremiah 17:7-8
