Isaiah 41 God is a planter

As we have read before, God shows a great variety of interests, all meaning for our good! In the following powerful positive encouaging passage we can see that He likes planting trees too. Trees represent life. God gives abundant life through Jesus (John10:10). He is God of the living, said Jesus.
God is omnipotent. Regardless of the geography, topography and the soil, natural water supply and weather conditions, God can supernaturally provides the best conditions for the growth and thriving of all kinds of plants, like the people of God.
Regardless how bad the medical or mental health reports may look,  they are no match against God.
The prophet Isaiah recorded seven kinds of trees here. All healthy thriving trees. God is blessing all aspects of the lives of His people.

Question to ask ourselves: am I too a tree planted by God? Psalm 1 depicts the ideal tree: “He shall be like a tree
    Planted by the rivers of water,
    That brings forth its fruit in its season,
    Whose leaf also shall not wither;
And whatever he does shall prosper.”
This is what God likes His tree to be.
Another key success verse is:
“Fear not, for I am with you. ”
God says He is with His people. He is for us. So who can be against us? 
This is the victorious healed position in Christ Jesus every believer holds fast to. Don’t let the spirit of fear intimidate you. God says, “Fear not.” Jesus says, “Don’t be afraid. ”
The Holy Spirit in us is the Spirit of power, love and sound mind! (2 Timothy 1:7).

Isaiah 41:10-20New King James Version (NKJV)
10 Fear not, for I am with you;
Be not dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you,
Yes, I will help you,
I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’
11 “Behold, all those who were incensed against you
Shall be ashamed and disgraced;
They shall be as nothing,
And those who strive with you shall perish.
12 You shall seek them and not find them—
Those who contended with you.
Those who war against you
Shall be as nothing,
As a nonexistent thing.
13 For I, the Lord your God, will hold your right hand,
Saying to you, ‘Fear not, I will help you.’
14 “Fear not, you worm Jacob,
You men of Israel!
I will help you,” says the Lord
And your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel.
15 “Behold, I will make you into a new threshing sledge with sharp teeth;
You shall thresh the mountains and beat them small,
And make the hills like chaff.
16 You shall winnow them, the wind shall carry them away,
And the whirlwind shall scatter them;
You shall rejoice in the Lord,
And glory in the Holy One of Israel.
17 “The poor and needy seek water, but there is none,
Their tongues fail for thirst.
I, the Lord, will hear them;
I, the God of Israel, will not forsake them.
18 I will open rivers in desolate heights,
And fountains in the midst of the valleys;
I will make the wilderness a pool of water,
And the dry land springs of water.
19 I will plant in the wilderness the cedar and the acacia tree,
The myrtle and the oil tree;
I will set in the desert the cypress tree and the pine
And the box tree together,
20 That they may see and know,
And consider and understand together,
That the hand of the Lord has done this,
And the Holy One of Israel has created it.
