No Worries!

Posted: February 27, 2016 in Uncategorized

“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.” – Jeremiah 17:7-8

What a picture this is. In the middle of the most dry, arid deserts there are areas of vegetation thriving because of a pool of water or stream that runs through the midst. Just yards away the ground is parched and desolate. It may not rain for months at a time and yet for the plants whose roots draw from the life giving stream, it doesn’t matter because the source of life is always there.

This is the picture Jeremiah was painting for us in these verses. When we place our trust in God we are like the trees whose roots draw life from the stream. He is our source. It doesn’t matter if the rain doesn’t come. It doesn’t matter what our circumstances may say. He is our source causing us to thrive and bear fruit even when everything around us is dry and barren.

My challenge to you today is simply this. Don’t give up. It may seem dry where you are. There may be no hope in sight, but know that the Source of Life is here. Trust in Him and allow His presence to comfort you, and strengthen you, and assure you that your temporary circumstances are just a fleeting breath that will surely change. As Jeremiah says, no worries.
