Blessed is the man that walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, or stands in the way of sinners, or sits in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in His law does he meditate day and night. He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth fruit in his season; his leaf shall not wither; and whatever he does shall prosper.
For a tree to thrive it must be firmly rooted… when it is planted by the river, it has the opportunity to grow and flourish. We are to be planted by river of living water. As we do, we will draw our strength from Him and we shall prosper. This does not mean that you will be wealthy or have anything you want materially… it is referring to our spiritual life. We will still face difficult times and hardships, but when we have the Spirit of God refreshing our soul, our spirits shall prosper beyond measure.
