Are You "TRUSTING" in the wrong thing?
My devotion today centered around a familiar scripture, but I caught a new piece that I have never really noticed before. Jeremiah 17:5-8 depicts who is blessed and cursed. The Bible makes it SO simple!
Hughes Translation: "Cursed is the person who trusts in themselves or others, but Blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord." Of course, the passage goes on to explain that "he will be like a tree planted by the water" indicating - no lack, more than enough sustenance, a thriving life, etc.
Here is the thought I had: Could it be that our lack of blessings (if we indeed do lack at all) is directly tied to "Trust" but in the wrong things? The Bible is clear! If we "Trust" in HIM, we will be blessed. If we do not, we are cursed. (verse 5) I know how many times I have tried to force things to happen. Like many of you, I want it my way and want it now. Maybe God is saying "Trust Me more." Repeatedly, we see how clear the scriptures are that in the end, our faith WINS!
Today, Let's exhibit a new level of "Trust" in HIM and not in ourselves, our jobs, our friends, etc. I look forward to hearing the outcome from you.
