Jeremiah 17 · Lean on Him · Peace · Trust

lean on Him… Jeremiah 17:7-8…

“Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose trust is the Lord.
He is like a tree planted by water, that sends out its roots by the stream,
and does not fear when heat comes, for its leaves remain green,
and is not anxious in the year of drought, for it does not cease to bear fruit.”
Jeremiah 7:7-8 ESV
The blessing of the one who trusts in the Lord is evident…
like a tree planted near a stream…
an ever-present supply of living water…

“…Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said,
‘Out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.'” —Jesus
John 7:38 ESV
Trusting in the Lord… believing in Him… leaning on Him…
has its benefits…
no fear from heat… or drought…
always fresh… alive… green…
no worry… because He makes the way for fruit to grow…
Are you planted near Him…? trusting in Him…?
Do you sense the blessings…? carefree attitude…? He promises…?
This is the last lean on Him… in this series…
and this is one of my favorite reminders… to trust in Him… 
blessed… like a tree planted by water…
Life abundant…
fruitful for Him…
when everyone else might be wasting a way…
Learn to lean on Him… trust in Him…
because this is life… rest… peace… hope…
