Thus says the LORD:
Cursed is the man who trusts in human beings, who seeks his strength in flesh, whose heart turns away from the LORD. He is like a barren bush in the desert that enjoys no change of season, But stands in a lava waste, a salt and empty earth.
Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, whose hope is the LORD. He is like a tree planted beside the waters that stretches out its roots to the stream: It fears not the heat when it comes, its leaves stay green; In the year of drought it shows no distress, but still bears fruit. Jer_17:5-10
OH the mysteries of the heart!
What is our heart condition, beloved? Is it relying on other human beings to keep it happy, to keep it alive? Or is it solely relying upon God! Other people, and pets, and money, and jobs and food, and games will all pass away and leave us empty and depressed. But God IS, both now and always! When we place our trust in Jesus, the Holy Spirit will fill us to overflowing with all the joy, all the life we will ever need. That’s God’s promise!
