She Lived by the River

Everything lives by the river.

Jeremiah 17:8 says, For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreads out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat comes, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit. KJV I believe this passage best describes the woman of Proverbs 31:10.

The tree planted by the river is described as having “her roots” and “her leaf.” God in his grace, honored the female tendency to plant, nurture and nest as we create a place where everything we touch can come alive. This is life by the river!

The Chayil Woman of Proverbs 31:10-31 exemplified river life! She was masterful at living well. I believe her success was born out of REVELATION unto RESULTS. Her connection with heaven was authentic.  She was comfortable with her access to the throne room. She walked in the place of her authority and she owned it. She took ACTION through ENCOUNTER.

How did she do it? What made her R.A.R.E.™? And can her success at life be replicated?

  • She Lived by the River is the marriage of three passages of scripture. Proverbs 31:10-31, Jeremiah 17:8 and Psalms 1:3. Proverbs 31:10-31 is a visual manifestation of Jeremiah 17:8 and Psalms 1:3. Chayil is what life by the river looks like.
  • She Lived by the River is about defining character values that shape our ability to create RESULTS.
  • She Lived by the River is about how to hear instructions unto ACTION in the PLACE of ENCOUNTER.
  • She Lived by the River is about becoming the R.A.R.E.™ expression of God in the Earth until everything you touch comes ALIVE!
