Do You Trust GOD?

 

Jeremiah 17:7-8

Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him. He will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought.

What of Today’s Verse…

Trust. Can we trust in God? Is the Lord faithful? While we may wish to have been alive when Jesus walked the earth or Jeremiah spoke fearlessly God’s hard truth, we are especially blessed to be alive today. We stand at the end of an incredible stream of God work and know him to be profoundly faithful to his people. We can launch out into the future with boldness because we know, as Psalm 139 says, God is there!

Let us Pray:

Holy God, I know you are there! In the morning, in the evening, in the long nights, I know I am not alone. Thank you for knowing me and going with me through all my days. Please make your presence known to me this day as I seek to honor you in what I do and say. Through Jesus my Lord I ask this. Amen.

Words of Wisdom

What do you expect?

Life will pay any price you ask of it.

What do you expect to be doing next week? Six months from now? Five years from now? I’m not really talking about goals, or new year’s resolutions. Rather, what do you really expect you’ll be doing?

If you want the best out of life, you must expect the best. Because whatever you expect of yourself, whatever you expect for yourself, is what you will get.

Expectation is not the same as wishing. You can wish for a million dollars, you can even convince yourself that it will somehow fall into your hands. Yet if wishing is all you do, it won’t happen. On the other hand, if you truly expect to be a millionaire, and if that expectation pervades all of your actions on a daily basis, then you’ll find yourself doing whatever it takes, for as long as it takes, to make your expectation a reality.

True expectations influence every area of your life, and that is how they work their magic. You can work hard for 10 hours every day, and if you just expect to barely get by, that’s what will happen. Work those same 10 hours with the expectation of getting wealthy, and suddenly you’ll find all sorts of opportunities and possibilities that you never would have seen before.

What you expect, makes all the difference.
