I discovered this last night. I am not sure I ever read this before. If I have, it was not with the same lens as last night.
Thus says the Lord:
“Cursed is the man who trusts in man
and makes flesh his strength,
whose heart turns away from the Lord.
He is like a shrub in the desert,
and shall not see any good come.
He shall dwell in the parched places of the wilderness,
in an uninhabited salt land.
“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 17:5-8 ESV)
So many times we want to trust in ourselves to accomplish the goals before us. But the Lord says trust in him, and you will not have to worry.
Place your trust today in the place that lets you bear fruit!
