“But blessed are those who trust in the Lord and have made the Lord their hope and confidence. They are like trees planted along a riverbank, with roots that reach deep into the water. Such trees are not bothered by the heat or worried by long months of drought. Their leaves stay green, and they never stop producing fruit.” Jeremiah 17:7-8
Not bothered by the heat, not bothered by the drought, beautiful green leaves, sweet healthy fruit.. but how??? STRONG ROOTS
Roots that reach DEEP down, drawing strength from the living water! Do you want to grow in your faith? Do you want to be able to stand strong during storms that rage and threaten destruction? Do you want to be able to stand strong when the sun beats down and you feel the heat in a dry and thirsty land? The answer lies in your roots.
I’m not talking about your past, where you came from.. but where does your strength come from? If it comes from yourself then eventually that river runs dry, but if you are planted by the river then you will have all you need. If you are constantly drawing your strength from the Lord.. you will never thirst again.
