Todays readings… 2 Samuel 13, Jeremiah 17, Matthew 28
What a meaningful, indeed spiritually powerful message came to Jeremiah – that we read today in his 17th chapter. May we all be able to take it to heart – in such a way that his words become guiding principles in our lives.
Sadly , as in the time of Jeremiah, today very few do this; but the Eternal Lord and His Son are looking for individuals who daily “trust in the Lord” and who absorb from His word the guiding principles that ‘rule’ their lives.
We read today (from v.7) “Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, whose trust is the LORD. He is like a tree planted by water, that sends out its roots by the stream, and does not fear when heat comes, for its leaves remain green, and is not anxious in the year of drought, for it does not cease to bear fruit.”
May we not cease to bear fruit in the “drought” of genuine spirituality that surrounds us – because our “trust is the Lord”. This is an extra dimension to trusting in Him. May we be inspired to do this because we meditatively read his word every day, being particularly inspired by verses such as Psalm 34 v.8 & 9 “Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good! Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him! Oh, fear the LORD, you his saints, for those who fear him have no lack!” That is, they have “no lack” of the things that matter, the things that lay the foundation for eternity.
A final thought today comes from the last book in the Bible! Yes, in the 15th chapter of Revelation we read of the time when “the song of the Lamb” is sung. It will be the time of ultimate blessing for the one “who trusts in the LORD” and has been “like a tree planted by water” – the “water of life.” And what is the ‘song of the Lamb’? “Great and amazing are your deeds, O Lord God the Almighty! Just and true are your ways, O King of the nations! … All nations will come and worship you, for your righteous acts have been revealed.”
Surely, this will be the ultimate experience of the man that trusts in the LORD”
