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 – 2 Kings 23:25

2 Kings 23:25 Before him there was no king like him who turned to the Lord with all his heart and with all his soul and with all his strength according to all the law of Moses, and no one like him arose after him.

Daily D – 2 Kings 20:1-6

2 Kings 20:1-6 In those days Hezekiah became terminally ill. The prophet Isaiah son of Amoz came and said to him, “This is what the Lord says: ‘Set your house in order, for you are about to die; you will not recover.’”

Then Hezekiah turned his face to the wall and prayed to the Lord, “Please, Lord, remember how I have walked before you faithfully and wholeheartedly and have done what pleases you.” And Hezekiah wept bitterly.

Isaiah had not yet gone out of the inner courtyard when the word of the Lord came to him: “Go back and tell Hezekiah, the leader of my people, ‘This is what the Lord God of your ancestor David says: I have heard your prayer; I have seen your tears. Look, I will heal you. On the third day from now you will go up to the Lord’s temple. I will add fifteen years to your life. I will rescue you and this city from the grasp of the king of Assyria. I will defend this city for my sake and for the sake of my servant David.’”

Daily D – 2 Kings 18:5-7

2 Kings 18:5-7 Hezekiah relied on the Lord God of Israel; not one of the kings of Judah was like him, either before him or after him. He remained faithful to the Lord and did not turn from following him but kept the commands the Lord had commanded Moses. The Lord was with him, and wherever he went he prospered. He rebelled against the king of Assyria and did not serve him.

Daily D – 2 Kings 17:12-15

2 Kings 17:12-15 They served idols, although the Lord had told them, “You must not do this.” Still, the Lord warned Israel and Judah through every prophet and every seer, saying, “Turn from your evil ways and keep my commands and statutes according to the whole law I commanded your ancestors and sent to you through my servants the prophets.” But they would not listen. Instead they became obstinate like their ancestors who did not believe the Lord their God. They rejected his statutes and his covenant he had made with their ancestors and the warnings he had given them. They followed worthless idols and became worthless themselves, following the surrounding nations the Lord had commanded them not to imitate.

Daily D – 2 Kings 13:4-6

2 Kings 13:4-6 Then Jehoahaz sought the Lord’s favor, and the Lord heard him, for he saw the oppression the king of Aram inflicted on Israel. Therefore, the Lord gave Israel a deliverer, and they escaped from the power of the Arameans. Then the people of Israel returned to their former way of life, but they didn’t turn away from the sins that the house of Jeroboam had caused Israel to commit. Jehoahaz continued them, and the Asherah pole also remained standing in Samaria.
