“But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him. They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It 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.”
What a mental picture Jeremiah paints for us. A tree planted by a stream feeding it nourishment continuously. Have you ever known such a place? I have. I used to take long walks on Saturdays during my teen years. The serenity of those walks was unparalleled. The writer states that the person who places his trust in the Lord is blessed … not was blessed or will be blessed, but IS blessed or HIGHLY FAVORED. God favors His children and if you are a true believer in Christ, then YOU are highly favored by God.
What a wonderful thing to hear. Think on it. Don’t just read it and run. Consider who you are to God. Consider who God is. Do you realize what an honor and privilege it is to be not just favored, but HIGHLY favored by the creator of the entire universe? However, this doesn’t just happen, it happens to those who have placed their trust in Him. Though it is not specifically stated, the implication is that we are to give our entire life over to Him and trust Him no matter what comes our way. We are to rely on Him in all situations and circumstances. May the Lord enable us to do just that all the days of our lives.
WALK WITH THE KING TODAY AND BE A BLESSING!!
