Psalm 80

English: grapes or vine

In Psalm 80, the nation of Israel is represented as an unhealthy vine; separated from the nutrients of God because of the infectious spiritual condition of sin. God intervened to provide a healing process as the Light shined and the vine grew so today its branches give shade to comfort us. Now the vine has grown to represent the church, the root of the vine is Christ, and the branches are believers.

God’s people were separated from God but by accepting the gift of abundant life through His Son, the healing can begin. To maintain spiritual health, His Word provides food for the mind and creates light for understanding.

My hope is that you will be moved by this video and that it inspires you as you spend this day with God: Healing Begins – Tenth Avenue North.

My prayer today is to continue to thank God for the gift of His son, take in His Word as spiritual food, and continue to shine the light so more branches grow to provide comfort for us all.
