Flourishing Like A Green Olive Tree

by Hazel Straub

When we seek God and dwell in him, his living water nourishes us. In his presence, our perspective changes to an eternal viewpoint. We become like a tenacious olive tree that enjoys long life, produces olives, oil for lamplight, eating and anointing oil. The olive tree is an evergreen. The roots of the olive tree can thrive in hot arid conditions, needing minimal water, and some still produce after 2,000 years. The olive branch, is the symbol for peace. (Noah sent out a dove from the ark after the flood and the dove returned with an olive branch in its beak. Like the olive tree we will flourish as we seek God and bask in his presence.

But I am like a green olive tree in the house of God; I trust in and confidently rely on the loving-kindness and the mercy of God forever and ever. (Psalm 52:8 AMPC)
