This is a beautiful picture of how God can grow a healthy branch from an old root causing it to bear fruit. Imagine if we all worshipped God and He could bear the same fruit in our lives and how that would impact our community and our nation.
“Out of the stump of David’s family will grow a shoot— yes, a new Branch bearing fruit from the old root. And the Spirit of the Lord will rest on him— the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord. He will delight in obeying the Lord. He will not judge by appearance nor make a decision based on hearsay.
He will wear righteousness like a belt and truth like an undergarment.
Nothing will hurt or destroy in all my holy mountain, for as the waters fill the sea, so the earth will be filled with people who know the Lord.” -Isaiah 11:1-3, 5, 9 NLT
