Jeremiah 17:7-8

Blessed is the Man Who Trusts in the Lord


Jeremiah 17:7-8 blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD and whose trust is the LORD for he will be like a tree planted by the water that extends its roots by a stream and will not fear when the heat comes but its leaves will be green and it will not be anxious in a year of drought nor cease to yield fruit this says that every man every woman who trusts in God and whose trust is God will be blessed this is such a powerful thing this says that God is for you God’s desire is to pour out life and blessing upon you if you’ll make God your trust it says here that when heat comes you won’t burn that when drought comes your roots will go deep and you’ll find plenty of water that your leaves will always be green what a wonderful analogy what I found is that eveyone of us have a contrast we can walk in when pressure comes to your life when injustice comes to your life you can defend yourself you can act on your own behalf or you can decide to let God be your trust and let your trust be in Him I remember several years ago I purchased a business from a particular man this business had to do with selling products to a group of customers I paid this man, and was paying him on an ongoing basis for these products and He decided to recruit people to purchase another product from a different company from the very group of people He had sold me and yet I was still paying him monthly for the business I’d purchased from him I thought that is unjust that’s unfair he can’t go and take people away from the business he sold me deplete the value and still expect me to pay him I thought I’m not going to pay him anymore I thought of taking legal action against him and the LORD said to me idolatry again you’re trusting in yourself you’re trusting in money would you trust in me would you allow me to be your defender I struggled with that, I thought but God it’s unfair it’s unjust what he’s doing isn’t right and the LORD said are you going to trust him? have you made that man and his actions more important than I am does he govern your destiny instead of Me I thought LORD you’re absolutely right and God said to me forgive him, release him and watch what I will do I did I just released him I forgave him you know what I saw happen? God prospered my business it increased more products were sold volume increased more customers came into my business what I observed happened to the man that I mentioned he didn’t prosper in many areas of his life he lost many friendships lost many relationships in the end even lost his own marriage God gave me a heart of compassion for him to pray for him because I believe it was really due to blindness he didn’t see what was happening how he was destroying relationships I discovered this principle that if I would trust in God not trust in money not trust in another person but let God be my trust God would do far exceedingly abundantly beyond what I could ever imagine or what I could have ever accomplished by taking legal action or being angry or stopping paying this man or whatever all those things that occurred to me were today as you go through your life in your business in your relationships in your family, in every area is God your trust or are you acting on your own behalf or is there a person who’s done something unjust and yet you’re defending yourself you’re acting against them or are you really willing to let the LORD be your trust to trust God to bring about incredible things God will always act according to his word God will always act according to His character and you can trust him 100% of the time I’m believing that today is your breakthrough day in areas where God is showing you you haven’t been trusting Him that’s the point of this message is God would you expose to me today in what area have I not been trusting you LORD I really want you to be 100% of my trust 100% of my trust is in you not in money, not in business not in my actions not in my intelligence not in my lawyer not in some other person God I trust you today to act on my behalf God bless you
