“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 NLT).

Beloved, there’s the opposite of our feature text which says… “Cursed are those who put their trust in mere humans, who rely on human strength and turn their hearts away from the Lord. They are like stunted shrubs in the desert, with no hope for the future. They will live in the barren wilderness, in an uninhabited salty land (Jeremiah 17:5‭-‬6 NLT)

Another Scripture says… Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but when the desire comes, it is a tree of life (Proverbs 13:12 NKJV). So, perhaps the reason why you are getting your heart is getting sick or frustrated is because you are still placing your hope in man, waiting for man to open doors or to finance the project and the Lord is waiting for you to exhaust all your sources of hope and when you have nowhere else to go then, perhaps you would finally turn to Him and say I have nowhere else to go.

Our feature text says you will not be… bothered by the heat or worried by long months of drought. The NKJV says and will not be anxious in the year of drought… This is because your trust is in the Lord and you know that… “God is not a man, that He should lie, Nor a son of man, that He should repent. Has He said, and will He not do? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good? (Numbers 23:19 NKJV)

The Lord is saying that for what I am about to do in your life, it would only take me. Yes, I might use men but you cannot put your trust in man because as you can already see, they are unstable and would let you down but when you put your trust in the Lord, you would have no reason to worry or be afraid of disappointment.

“These are the words of the Holy One, the True One, He who has the key [to the house] of David, He who opens and no one will [be able to] shut, and He who shuts and no one opens: ‘I know your deeds. See, I have set before you an open door which no one is able to shut, for you have a little power, and have kept My word, and have not renounced or denied My name (REVELATION 3:7‭-‬8 AMP).

However, you must trust me and… be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:6-7 NKJV).

God bless you in Jesus Christ name
