Restore the Land ✡ “I Am Like A Thriving Olive Tree In Hashem’s House” – Israel365

But I am like a thriving olive tree in Hashem’s house;
I trust in the faithfulness of Hashem forever and ever.

Today’s Israel Inspiration

In the above verse, King David writes about being a “thriving olive tree in Hashem’s house.” Olive trees are one of the strongest species of trees, with the ability to survive droughts, diseases and fires. Comparing oneself to an olive tree in the house of Hashem connotes feelings of safety, security and being in the presence of Hashem. We are entering the winter season in Israel. The olive tree, which can live for up to 2,000 years, does not shed its leaves in winter or summer,  and is God’s eternal evergreen. God called the people of Israel His olive tree, his eternal people: “Hashem named you verdant olive tree, fair, with choice fruit” (Isaiah 11:16). Tomorrow, Israel365 will be planting groves of olive trees in the Jewish community of Bat Ayin in the Biblical Heartland of Israel. Plant an olive tree and play a part in ushering in the redemption.
