Jeremiah 17:7-8 Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is. 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.
We are not to trust ourselves, the government, or other people. We are to trust the Lord God of Heaven.
If in these difficult economic times we could learn this lesson we would enjoy these promises. We will be like a tree planted by the waters that continues to grow and be blessed. Even when bad times come we will continue to grow and produce fruit.
This is what happens in our getting saved. We trust God and not ourselves. This is how we are to live our spiritual lives. We trust God and not ourselves. This is how we are to live even in the midst of crises because we will thrive even in bad times.
