The Oak and the Vine


 

Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest.

Matthew 11: 28

The oak tree has long been praised for its legendary strength, longevity, and exceptional wood properties. Oak trees adapt well in the natural forests, the suburban yards and even in the inner cities of our nation.

At my wife’s childhood home there was a beautiful oak tree out in her front yard

. On that tree were numerous green vines that made it looking all the more beautiful.

Even though the vines added to the attractiveness of this great oak, they also created a higher wind load on its trunk and branches during storms. During the dry seasons the vines would also compete with the oak for water. Yet, through the years, my wife’s oak tree never seemed to lose any of its strength or grandeur, even when she continually swung on its branches as a little girl.

In a parallel way, we are like the vines on a grand and majestic oak tree, in that we need God to help us survive the storms of this life. The tighter we can wrap ourselves around Him during such storms, the better chance we have to survive.

Of course we can pray that God will remove storms when they come our way, and sometimes He does. But for the most part He doesn’t because He knows we are at our best and most beautiful when we cling to Him, just as the vines did on that great oak.

Can we put too much of a load on Him when we do? Hardly, for like the great oak, God can handle every burden, fear, or anxious thought we have when storms come our way in this life. And when we are so thirsty for answers to the life dilemmas we face, without hesitation God allows us to quench our thirst through the Scriptures He provided just for us.

So, cling to God and drink of His Word, it will make you more beautiful and quench your thirst at the same time.

Psalm 63: 8 My soul clings to You; Your right hand upholds me.

Isaiah 62 3 You will also be a crown of beauty in the hand of the Lord, and a royal diadem in the hand of your God.

John 4:14 Whoever drinks of the water that I will give him shall never thirst; but the water that I will give him will become in him a well of water springing up to eternal life.
