A tenth of the people will be allowed to stay in the land, but it will be destroyed again. They will be like an oak tree. When the tree is chopped down, a stump is left. This stump will be a very special seed that will grow again. Isaiah 6:13 (ERV)
Coppicing is one well known traditional woodland management. When trees are cut down to near ground level, they are given a few years to grow so that a new cycle of harvest may occur. This method brings benefits and revenues to nature, as well as the company.
At times you may feel like the tree stumps when all of your efforts and past successes are cutaway from you. There is no recognition and confirmation to cheer you on. You may feel downhearted and left alone to face a coming cycle. Don't give up but press on. Be glad and take pride in yourself because you are the few chosen one by the Lord.
God chose you so to grow again and bring forth a new fruitful cycle. He believes you can do the job even though the cutting off may seem painful. Hey, your growth in this coming season is bringing considerable benefits to people around you, also the Kingdom of God. Keep up the excellent work and rejoice always.
You may feel downhearted and left alone to face a coming cycle. Don't give up but press on. Be glad and take pride in yourself because you are the few chosen one by the Lord.
A Prayer for Today:
Dear Lord Jesus,
The Father has given You all power to govern both the spiritual and physical domains. Within Your absolute power, all things would grow and continue in life You had given them. Today I stand and sing praise to Your name because everything I have received is growing again! They will thrive and prosper under Your domain. Praise God!!!
