Do you want to live a life that is unshakable—one so filled with blessing that no circumstance can steal from you? Psalm 15 has the secret to your success!
With winds reaching up to 180 mph, a hurricane is a powerful and destructive storm system—its brute force has the potential to destroy nearly everything in its path. With lashing winds, flying waves and torrents of rain, it has the ability to tear down even the strongest structures. It seems nothing can withstand its torrential force. Except one thing—the palm tree.
If you’ve ever watched footage of a hurricane, you’ll notice all kinds of destruction and chaos. Even the mighty oak tree is uprooted and torn apart with hurricane force. Yet, palm trees stand their ground—they are not moved. Sure, they will bend with the storm, but they don’t break, and they are rarely uprooted. Quite often, a palm tree is the last thing standing after a great storm—a symbol of resistance in the face of overwhelming adversity.
Even before Jesus came to earth, the palm branch was a symbol of triumph and victory. So it is no surprise that God uses the palm tree to paint of picture of how we, as believers, are to live. Psalm 92:12 says, “The [uncompromisingly] righteous shall flourish like the palm tree.” They will “[be long-lived, stately, upright, useful, and fruitful]” (AMPC). They will live in victory—and they won’t be moved.
How do we become spiritual palm trees?
Psalm 15 offers a plan to becoming like a palm tree—one who can “daily dwell in the life of the Holy Spirit” (verse 1, TPT) and will “never be moved” (verse 5, ESV). It is the path to a flourishing, blessed and unshakable life.
