Blessed IS The Man…

Jeremiah 7:7-8  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.

The blessings we receive in our lives if they are largely based on our circumstances are fleeting at best. If our hopes and aspirations are founded on the things that surround us we are victums of those circumstances. Our happiness will change daily as the ebb and flow of life pushes us toward moments of ectasy or into the valley of despair. We become subject to happenings that result from the actions of those around us or the things we observe that influence our feelings. One day we are up and the next we are down.  Such is life!

What a difference when our trust is in God! Our faith and hope then is not governed by the circumstances that are around us. He, our God, determines what is in our hearts. He fills our hearts with "joy uspeakable and full of joy." His blessings are continual. We see the changes around us but are not controlled by them. We know that our God is greater. Our joy is constant because it is not based on earth but is given by God Himself.  Put your trust in Him!

Keep Looking Up!
