“But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in Him. He will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream and does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.” Jeremiah 17: 7-8
God understands our thoughts better than we do. He desires us to put our trust in Him. He holds our time; He provides for our needs; He covers us with His protection.
We must ask the Lord to work through us, by faith and trust. In leading our ministries, our churches, and, most of all, our households, God wants us to be in the here and now.
For the remainder of this year, commit to being rooted like a tree planted by the water. In His blessings, He will give strength and replenishment to help you stay vital and green. Even through the tough times, no matter the season, we are able to bear fruit if we abide in Him.
His love never fails, and neither should our dependence upon Him. He is faithful. In this moment, live in the assurance and dependency of Christ.
