Jeremiah 17:7 But blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, whose confidence is in Him. 8 He is like a tree planted by the waters that sends out its roots toward the stream. It does not fear when the heat comes, and its leaves are always green. It does not worry in a year of drought, nor does it cease to produce fruit.

When we place all of our trust and confidence in the Lord, we become like a tree whose roots are in the stream. No matter what happens in our lives or around us, we’ll always prosper.

This is how us trees should be…
The doctor gives us a negative health report. We’re not moved because our confidence is in His word that we are healed (Isaiah 53:5). We have to go to the hospital. Okay, we’re still healed. The doctors say our lives will never be the same. They’re correct. It won’t be the same because we’ll have a testimony to tell how we were healed.

We desire a spouse. God’s word says He’ll give us our heart’s desire as we delight in Him (Psalm 37:4). Even people who don’t like us and dishonoring God are getting married. Makes no difference to us because no good thing will God withhold from us (Psalm 84:11). It’s taking a long time. No matter how long it takes, we believe the truth in God’s word (Mark 11:24).

Although delay, pain, and unfortunate events may occur, as we keep our focus on God and the truth in His word, we can’t be uprooted and we’ll receive whatever we desire.
