Jeremiah 17:7, 8  “But 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.” (NLT)

Deeply-rooted believers are not terrified by heat and long-range weather forecasts. Their nourishment and refreshment come from a deep and abundant source. They are fruitful while others complain.

There is a resource that never grows dry. There is refreshment easily reached by turning to God in trust and obedience. 

Where does your hope come from?

In what do you place your confidence?

Psalm 121:2 gives us words to declare our answer to these questions:

“My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth!”

This makes a nice, simple breath prayer. You can keep it handy for when you need it. When you are running out of patience, perspective, or personal resources, God continues overflowing with goodness, grace, and mercy. Pray this affirmation and carry on.

“My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth!”

Heaven Maker and Earth Maker also makes cooler temperatures and rain. Turn to him. Trust him. Tell him and yourself so. Tell others where your strength comes from. Tell them the source of your joy. 

I will remember and declare where my help comes from.

Our Father, you are the reservoir that never runs dry. You are the river that continually flows. You are the rain that so lovingly refreshes the land. You take care of people, pets, livestock, wildlife, crops of the field, and plants of all kind. We can trust you and do what you say because you always seek our highest good. You are our hope and help. We belong to you. Amen.

Daily D – Psalm 119:114

Psalm 119:114 You are my refuge and my shield; your word is my source of hope.

Daily D – Jonah 4:2-3

Jonah 4:2, 3 So he complained to the Lord about it: “Didn’t I say before I left home that you would do this, Lord? That is why I ran away to Tarshish! I knew that you are a merciful and compassionate God, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. You are eager to turn back from destroying people. Just kill me now, Lord! I’d rather be dead than alive if what I predicted will not happen.”

Daily D – Psalm 115:14-15

Psalm 115:14, 15 May the Lord richly bless both you and your children. May you be blessed by the Lord, who made heaven and earth.

Daily D – Joel 2:12-13

Joel 2:12, 13 That is why the Lord says, “Turn to me now, while there is time. Give me your hearts. Come with fasting, weeping, and mourning. Don’t tear your clothing in your grief, but tear your hearts instead.” Return to the Lord your God, for he is merciful and compassionate, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. He is eager to relent and not punish.”

Daily D – Hosea 14:8-9

Hosea 14:8, 9 “O Israel, stay away from idols! I am the one who answers your prayers and cares for you. I am like a tree that is always green; all your fruit comes from me.” Let those who are wise understand these things. Let those with discernment listen carefully. The paths of the Lord are true and right, and righteous people live by walking in them. But in those paths sinners stumble and fall.”
