Prophetic Words for Encouragement

January 5 2024


Because of all their hard work, bees are often associated with industriousness and other qualities such as:

  • Dedication, as both the queen and the worker bees, are protective of the colony
  • Fertility and Life, as bees pollinate over 250,000 species of plants
  • Focus, as bees use electronic sensors to determine which flowers to pollinate
  • Generosity, as they allow humans to collect their honey
  • Hard Work, as their entire lives are devoted to the work of pollinating
  • Prosperity, as their hard work pays off in honey, a gold-colored species
  • Teamwork, as each type of bee (queen, worker, drone) has its job in the process of pollinating and honey making

In addition, many connect the appearance of bees to miracles and divinity.

For all the bees’ work, they are undoubtedly synonymous with busyness. Their industrious nature is also the reason behind the origin of the simile “busy as a bee.”

Bees may appear in the Bible as symbols of productivity and prosperity. In some passages, they are seen as a sign of God’s divine providence. Bees are also symbolic of hard work and diligence, with their industrious nature characterized in the scriptures. Bees in the Bible are found in Deuteronomy, Psalms, Isaiah, and Judges

Bees hold a special significance in the Christian religion as they manifest the characteristics of Jesus—strength, perseverance, and wisdom.

Personal note: The Lord directed me to this picture. I then found the above information online.

The Lord is saying: keep pure, be focused, dedicated, persevere, work hard, work together and you will prosper. Ask God for wisdom, wait on him to renew your strength. 

Isaiah 40:31  King James Version

31But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
