Independence…


Ever heard the phrase “everyone under their own vine and under their own fig tree.”? Did you realize it was a reference to independence? Do you realize it is a reference to independence? Did you know this phrase is used 3 times in the bible?

Everyone will sit under their own vine and under their own fig tree, and no one will make them afraid, for the LORD Almighty has spoken.

–from Micah 4:4

and

During Solomon’s lifetime Judah and Israel, from Dan to Beersheba, lived in safety, everyone under their own vine and under their own fig tree.

–from 1 Kings 4:25

and

“‘In that day each of you will invite your neighbor to sit under your vine and fig tree,’ declares the LORD Almighty.”

–from Zechariah 3:10

Did you realize that George Washington also use this phrase nearly 50 times in relations to or the settings of the American revolution and the founding of the United States of America?

So let’s not forget our beginnings! Let’s not stop standing up for what is right! Let’s not stop standing up for those who can’t stand on their own! Let’s step up and step into all that God has planned and purposed for our lives today!
