Text : Psalms 128: 1-6

1: How joyful are those who fear the Lord— all who follow his ways!
2: For thou shalt eat the labour of thine hands: happy shalt thou be, and it shall be well with thee.
3: Thy wife shall be as a fruitful vine by the sides of thine house: thy children like olive plants round about thy table.

Every good student of the bible will give attention to every word, phrase and sentence used in a passage. A fruitful vine and Olive tree plants caught my attention here.

A fruitful vine is self explanatory, your woman will be productive, and your children like an olive tree, I search for the lifespan of an olive tree this is what I found: Provided with the appropriate growing conditions, this tree can survive in relative neglect for hundreds of years. While olive trees may live to be as old as 1,500 years, the average lifespan is 500 years.

It means no human can outlive an olive tree. The focus here is the continuity, the togetherness of the couple and the prosperity of their children. Our passage contradict untimely death both for your spouse and your children.

I have found scriptures to be medicine and cure for every unpleasant situation of life. If what you read from the bible is contrary to what you see around your life, then the word of God is right while your situation is false, though that’s the reality on ground, yet the word of God is superior, it is like someone trying to claim what is yours and you have every document to proof it is yours, you will want to challenge the matter in the court of law until you get what is yours.

Where there are situations that are not pleasant around the family,

just a stand on the word of God about what you’re going through, and you can be sure that situation will respond to the word just as every citizen is expected to obey court order of the land.

Your wife will be fruitful, that’s what God said, and your children shall outlive you and you will see your children’s children. The man that fears the Lord will receive this blessings from him. No separation, no divorce, no untimely death, and your children shall be like the olive plants. God is committed to his word, you just keep your part of the covenant. God bless you.

* Bless my home Lord according to your word.
