Resilient faith // 19-09-19

“…blessed are those who trust in the Lord and have made the Lord their hope and confidence. They are like trees planted along a riverbank, with roots that reach deep into the water. Such trees are not bothered by the heat or worried by long months of drought. Their leaves stay green, and they never stop producing fruit.” Jeremiah‬ ‭17:7-8‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Trials come in many different forms: opposition, those things that come against me (heat); or times of lack, when there just doesn’t seem to be an answer or enough resources (drought)! These trials have the potential to burn us up or shrink us down. But these things are not meant to be the defining factors of our lives. Circumstances do not have to dictate fruitfulness! Not when we know God is with us!! Lord, keep me rooted in You today, resilient in faith, with a hope and a confidence that just get stronger no matter what trials come my way. Keep growing fruit in me that lasts. Amen 🙏🏼😊
