Isaiah 55: The Trees of the Field Shall Clap Their Hands

by Kathleen Huebener in Inspiration

What does that scripture mean, “Trees of the field shall clap their hands”? Envision a time of great joy and celebration. You are standing in a bountiful field of grain surrounded with fruit trees heavy with harvest. You feel so blest that you shout with joy! The trees of the field are just a part of the whole picture. The entire verse is a vibrant blessing and goes like this:


“For ye shall go out with joy,

And be led forth with peace:

The mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing,

And all the trees of the field shall clap their hands. “


A dynamic scene unfolds bursting with joy, peace, and singing! All of nature rejoices with you and great happiness abounds. What a blessing this is!


Certainly it is a blessing worth pursuing. How can a person get this blessing?

To find the answer, we turn to Leviticus 26: 3, where God says: 


“If ye walk in My statutes, and keep My commandments, and do them;

Then I will give you rain in due season,

And the land shall yield her increase,

And the trees of the field shall yield their fruit.”

The Lord gracious and abundant in goodness is the blessing source. All we have to do is follow His game plan. Sounds like a good deal to me. How about to you?
