Blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord


“But blessed is the man 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, 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.”  Jeremiah 17:7,8.

If you believe and trust in the Lord, then God declares you blessed.  Your blessing includes:

1) Confidence.  You can be sure that God is with you and that He shall supply all your needs in abundance according to His riches in glory.  Where God guides He provides.  Resources will serve your dream and vision in God’s timing.

2) Fruitfulness.  God in you will cause you to bear fruit and your life will be filled with meaning as others are blessed through you.  It is to your Father’s glory that you bear much fruit, showing yourself to be His disciple.

3) Stability.  Life around you might be unstable, but planted in Christ Jesus you are stable and cannot be uprooted by circumstances or by the wicked intentions of others.

4)  Peace.  In the midst of famine or war you know that God is in control of your life, your seasons, and future.  God is for you and therefore nothing or no one can destroy you or your purpose in Him.

Today, don’t worry, just pray.  Trust in the Lord who has already declared you blessed and highly favored.
