3 Trades and a Consequence

Part 1: God offers value for worthlessness, re-construction for de-construction, life for death....Beauty for Ashes.

Part 2: God offers recovery from the most traumatic moments, even moments of mourning and grief. He anoints us out of those periods into joy and even celebration as only He can.

Part 3: God offers a way out of longer-term sadness, anxiety, worry or depression. Praise transforms us, even in despair.

Today: What are the ramifications of the power of God at work in our lives through these trades? Oaks of Righteousness
The tree is an important metaphor throughout Scripture:

Jeremiah 17:8
"They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream."

tree = courage, fruitfulness, absence of worry

Psalm 1:3
"That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither—whatever they do prospers."

tree = fruitfulness, life, prosperity in God

Other examples: Romans 11:17-21, Psalm 52:8-9
God restoring us...
God planting us...
God growing us....
God strengthening us...
God sustaining us....
God connecting us....
