Daily devotional: Trust in the Lord

Scripture
"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."
Jeremiah 17:7-8 ESV

Observation
The world says you are blessed if you trust in yourself. They even say, "God helps those who help themselves." But the Scriptures say that you are blessed if you trust the Lord. No matter what harm comes my way, I do not need to be anxious or fear when I trust the Lord.

Application
Trust in the Lord--make Him the object of my trust. Be confident in Him and look to Him so that when trials and tribulations come, I need not fear or be anxious.

Prayer
Lord, I put my trust in You. I am so grateful, Jesus, that just as You are in the Father and the Father is in You, that I am in You and You are in me. Thank you for saving me and making me a new person. Please keep working on me to transform me into Your likeness, to bring glory to Your name through me. May I be an instrument used for good, to bring people to You. I trust You and seek to know You more and more each day. I love you.
