In His Word - September 2, 2011



This is what the Lord says:
"Cursed is the one who trust in man, who depends on flesh for his strength and whose heart turns away from the Lord.  He will be like a bush in the wastelands; he will not see prosperity when it comes.  He will dwell in the parched places of the desert, in a salt land where no one lives.
"But blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him. He will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit."
The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it?
"I the Lord search the heart and examine the mind, to reward a man according to his conduct, according to what his deeds deserve." (Jeremiah 17:5-10)

  2. I am so thankful that I have the Lord to lean on and to trust in. I pray that I will never turn from Him and pray for the ones that do.

    I am also so very thankful that He searches our heart and examines our minds and knows how much we love Him!

    Thanks for this Rebecca!!

    Have a blessed weekend!

  3. Praise God - that He not only makes Himself available for us, but He wants us to seek Him. I am sometimes amazed, when I feel so full of Him and His Word that I am actually doing what the Creator of the Universe wants me to be doing....it sometimes seems to good to be true that I am free to trust in Him and seek Him....what a gift!!
