Christians like Trees. Rooted in trust and faith
Blessed is the man
who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked
or stand in the way of sinners
or sit in the seat of mockers.
and on his law he meditates day and night.
which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither.
Whatever he does prospers.
Jer 17:6 He will be like a bush in the wastelands;he will not see prosperity when it comes.He will dwell in the parched placeso of the desert,in a saltp land where no one lives.
Jer 17:7 “But blessedq is the man who trustsr in the Lord,whose confidence is in him.
Jer 17:8 He will be like a tree planted by the waterthat sends out its roots by the stream.sIt does not fear when heat comes;its leaves are always green.It has no worries in a year of droughttand never fails to bear fruit.”
How many people do you know who are prosperous, but do not see prosperity, either through over-spending, through bad luck, or through fear, or miserliness?
But the one who trusts his dreams to God does not fear in a year of drought, its leaves are always green, he always bears fruit.
Trusting in God, of course, implies leaving our dearest dreams in his hands. He may say yes, bless and fructify them. Or, he may have other dreams for us.
