“Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord and has made the Lord his hope and confidence. He is like a tree planted along a riverbank, with its roots reaching deep into the water—a tree not bothered by the heat nor worried by long months of drought. Its leaves stay green, and it goes right on producing all its luscious fruit.” (Jeremiah 17: 7-8, the Living Bible)
We may not feel like the strong and flourishing tree described here. It may seem that we are saplings, small and vulnerable, not fully rooted, swaying precariously in the winds of fate and fear.
But we can trust God, the One Who planted us and gave us life and purpose, to give us the strength to grow and prosper. As we recognize that we are not alone, not reliant on the whims of men or of time or of randomness, we can experience a true feeling of soundness, safety, and serenity.
God’s control is a constant. There is never a drought of divine Love. Truth never scorches or depletes. God’s goodness is always balanced, progressive, kind. It restores, replenishes, strengthens, and assures.
We can feel true hope and confidence by knowing that our roots are always in God. He is our Source, holding us firmly and faithfully every day, and we are the living expression of His prosperous and beautiful Life.
