I can be like a bush in the wastelands dwelling in a parched place of the desert. Dry. Empty. Hot.
God tells me through Jeremiah that it’s my choice. I will be like a parched bush if I put my trust in people.
If I choose to sink my roots deep into my relationship with God,
if I choose to trust in the LORD and keep my confidence in him,
I will thrive. I will grow. I will have no fear.
No contest – right?
I love when God encourages me through words like these. It feels like he is patting me on the back, saying “You’re on the right path.” This is the the journey I want to be on. It’s taking me where I want to go – sinking my roots deep into the Stream of Living Water.
I’m grateful you are on this journey with me.
We love you, Abba Father.
