Blessed by the Lord

July 31

“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.” (Jer. 7:7,8).

Believers in Christ are blessed with:
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.
2) Fruitfulness. God in you will cause you to bear fruit and live a productive life.
3) Stability. Life around you might be unstable, but planted in Christ Jesus you are stable. You cannot be uprooted by circumstances or by the wicked intentions of others.
4) Peace. In midst of famine or war, 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.
