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.”
