I can’t believe that I’m already two months into this blog and still haven’t used this Scripture. It speaks to me so strongly that I made it the vision for my own life a few years ago, so don’t be surprised if it pops up here more than once or twice.
Not going to say much about this today, because the Scripture itself presents such a vivid picture, such a contrast of two different ways to live our lives.
The questions today: Who do you trust? Where are you living?
The answers to those questions make all the difference in how much hope is in your life.
This is what the LORD says:
“Cursed are those who put their trust in mere humans,
who rely on human strength
and turn their hearts away from the LORD.
They are like stunted shrubs in the desert,
with no hope for the future.
They will live in the barren wilderness,
in an uninhabited salty land.
“But blessed are those who trust in the LORD
and have made the LORD their hope and confidence.
They are like trees planted along a riverbank,
with roots that reach deep into the water.
Such trees are not bothered by the heat
or worried by long months of drought.
Their leaves stay green,
and they never stop producing fruit.”
Do you want to be unbothered by the heat, not worried by long droughts, always evergreen, always bearing fruit?
Scripture: Jeremiah 17:5-8 (NLT)
