“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.”
These verses paint a beautiful picture of what complete trust in Christ can look like. Why do we seem to pull back our reliance on God and rely on our own strength so often. When trails hit us full force, we’re face down and on our knees, but when things are humming along we tend to pull back. Complete reliance can allow us to weather those hard times as we do the good. Don’t let go of Christ’s robe!
