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
