INFORMATIVE ARTICLE: Like a Tree “Planted by the Waters”
Are you planted by the waters? Are you trusting Jesus in every area of your life?
Some years ago, our house developed a major water blockage, and I was using a water-hose in a desperate attempt to un-stop the main drain. To say that I, and everything around me, was completely soaked would be an understatement.
As might be expected the phone rang, and with the gushing water-hose in one hand I answered the phone with the other; without even saying “hello” a voice on the other end blurted out, “And he shall be like a tree planted by the water!”
God definitely has a sense of humor! My Mother, who had no idea what I was doing at the time, was quoting what has become one of my favorite Scriptures.
“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 17:7-8 (NIV)
Years later, in the midst of a morning devotion, I sensed the Holy Spirit ask, “Do you trust me in every area of your life?” Again the Scripture in Jer 17:7 came to mind. I knew this Scripture by heart, but this time it had a much deeper message.
Perhaps for the first time, I realized that God was describing a lifestyle that is based on complete trust and confidence in Him. He was asking, “Do you trust Me in every area of your life, for anything you may encounter?”
So I ask, are you trusting in Jesus for all your needs, in every area of your life? There is confidence in knowing that He will be with you in every situation and that He promises never to leave or abandon you. (Heb 13:5)
If you will trust in the Lord, He will be there to help with decisions, temptations, illness, social situations, and whatever you may encounter. You will find renewed trust, hope, and a deeper walk with Him…CONTINUE READING… @ https://www.trusting-in-jesus.com

People Often Ask These Questions:
- How do I fulfil my destiny? Our destiny is bound up in our response to the Gospel. “Are you saved or lost?” That is the question above all questions. The declaration of the Gospel is “Jesus saves.” He saves from wrath, judgment, hell, bondage, the devil, and darkness. He saves us from dying in our sins. …People insure their houses and yet do not insure their eternal future. Yet we know that salvation offers so much more. Who else offers such insurance but Jesus?
- Why does God allow suffering? You could just as well ask the National Secretary of Transportation why he allows accidents on the highways. No doubt he would take exception to your accusation and point to the rules of the road. “Every time a law is broken, an accident and suffering might occur,” he would reply. People suffer chiefly for one reason—they are ignoring God’s rulebook, the Bible, and everything goes wrong. Our Creator knows exactly how He has made us and what will harm us. Consequently, out of a caring, protective heart, He says, “You shall not … ” The “you shall nots” are not edicts designed to spoil our fun, but rather they are the manufacturer’s handling instructions. God wisely knows that our psyche is unable to handle sin. Actually, it is crushed and tormented by misdeeds. It is always wise to read the instruction manual before using a new appliance. People worry about breaking a new DVD player or a new computer, but strangely, they have no worries about destroying their own spirits and souls with the poison of sin.
