Trust & Prosper

Updated: Jul 22, 2022

Jeremiah 17:7, 8 Blessed is the man that trusts in the Lord, and whose hope is the Lord. For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit.

Hey! Hi and hello P.R.E.T.T.Y crew. Jeremiah tells us what will happen to the person that puts their trust in man and turns from the Lord. In the earlier verses of this passage, he gives us an inside look at how sin impedes on the provision God has promised His people. He also points out that only through genuine repentance and trust in the Lord will God restore his promises and provision for His people. Right now, the world’s focus is on self. The people’s trust is in the flesh, in the folly of man. We must be careful and have our mind made up to trust God. I'm finding Christians out there moving so singularly that they are finding themselves all alone and not seeing prosperity of mind, body, and soul. Many are looking to themselves and are trusting solely in their own ability. And most all of us watch the news and social updates wondering which politician will save us from the woes of this world. Guess what? They too are man, and the scripture says not to put your trust in mere flesh. Careful when you think about you and everything you need. Only God can be to us what we truly need and want. Everywhere I look on social media someone is either encouraging us to manifest this and manifest that. The world is saying you can have whatever you want, you just have to think it and believe it. It is made clear from the scripture that our sinful nature led to this terrible mindset. So much so, that our sin is written on a tablet with an iron pen that has a diamond tip. Cursed is this man… says Jeremiah, for he shall be like a heath in the desert. That is, dried up, acidic soil, low fertility, and terrible drainage. A lowly shrub that grows no more than two meters off the ground. The blessings of God are on the one who trusts in the Lord and whose confidence is in Him. The blessings of God are on the one who repents of their sin, turns from wickedness, and embraces the life God is calling them to live. The contrast to the heath above is to be as a tree planted by the stream. That is, strong roots, fertile soil, an endless stream of living water so magnificent not even a drought can kill His provision. Sis, we are the church. We are the very bride of Christ. The groom takes better care of His bride than anyone or anything ever could. Provision and prosperity are on the other side of trust in God. Have a pretty week!!
