Happy Monday Saints.

Jeremiah 17:7-8 “BUT BLESSED IS THE ONE WHO TRUSTS IN THE LORD, WHOSE CONFIDENCE IS IN HIM. THEY 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 AND NEVER FAILS TO BEAR FRUIT.”

When a tree is planted in the right place, it will flourish.

When your life is established and grounded in a trusting relationship with God, you have nothing to fear.

By faith, you’ll be able to bear the fruit of the Spirit and remain strong.

You’ll be blessed in the middle of a drought because your roots are deeply embedded in Christ.

Because you are planted by the riverside, even when the riverbed is dry, there is water deep beneath the dry surface that a deeply rooted tree can draw from.

Other trees will struggle in the drought, but the tree that is right by the riverside will stand strong.

In John 6:35, Jesus declared, “I AM THE BREAD OF LIFE. WHOEVER COMES TO ME WILL NEVER GO HUNGRY, AND WHOEVER BELIEVES IN ME WILL NEVER BE THIRSTY.”

Position yourself by the source of living water so that even during a drought, you can stay strong, fruitful and blessed.

Have a great week. God bless and lots’a love,

Warren
