Word of the day:
““But blessed is the one who trusts in the LORD, whose confidence is in him. They 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
Why are we so confident on the Lord? Why are we so eager in serving Him to the best of our resources and capacity? Why do we trust Him so much that it appears we neglect our own?
The verses above assure us of God’s protection and promise of abundance. Of course, we did not serve God for us to abound, we are not investing on God. What we are committing is our trust in Him. Trust that He will always be there and never leave us wherever we are.
Nowadays, the world is facing chaos in every turn of events. Earthquake, tsunami, drought and famine, threat of war, and epidemy to name few. In the midst of frustrations and these series of events, we are confident that God will keep us strong and we will be like trees supplied with necessary nutrients to live.
There’s a big difference on living and surviving.
People are struggling to survive in this cruel world. God has given us an opportunity to live a life to the fullest. Let’s grab it. Let’s trust in God. He’d proven through ages and generations that His love is unfailing.
Isn’t it fair to give our very best to our Maker?
