SURVIVING DROUGHT!

The one who trusts in the Lord  will be like a tree planted by the water.  Jeremiah 17:7–8

TODAY'S INSIGHT

OCTOBER 24READ: JEREMIAH 17:5-8

Tumbleweeds are what I picture when I read Jeremiah’s description of a person “whose heart turns away from the Lord” (Jeremiah 17:5). He says that those who draw their strength from “mere flesh” will be like “a bush in the wastelands” and be unable to “see prosperity when it comes” (vv. 5–6). In sharp contrast are those who put their trust in God instead of people. Like trees, their strong, deep roots draw strength from Him, enabling them to remain full of life, even in the midst of drought-like circumstances.  Tumbleweeds and trees both have roots. Tumbleweeds, however, don’t stay connected to their life-source, causing them to dry out and die. Trees, on the other hand, remain connected to their roots, enabling them to flourish and thrive, anchored to that which will sustain them in times of difficulty. When we hold fast to God, drawing strength and encouragement from the wisdom found in the Bible and talking to Him in prayer, we too can experience the life-giving, life-sustaining nourishment He provides.


Reflect & Pray

How has God sustained you in times of drought? What can you do today to drive your roots more deeply into relationship with Him?  Life-giving God, You’re my sustainer. Thank You for giving me what I need to navigate my struggles and hardships.
