Years ago, while I was on vacation with Wendy in the breathtaking Canadian Rockies, we spent time soaking in the splendor of our heavenly Father’s creation. As we wandered along the bank of a river, we stumbled upon a majestic tree anchored by the water’s edge. Its trunk was sturdy and strong, and its branches stretched out to form a perfect canopy above it. The tree was constantly nourished by the river and in contrast to the other trees that were further away from the river, its leaves were refreshingly green and luscious. Looking at that tree, I couldn’t help but recall the blessed man described in Jeremiah 17, and I remember saying to myself then, “I am like this tree in Jesus’ name!”
Beloved, when you depend on and place your trust in Jesus instead of yourself, your qualifications, your looks or even your circumstances, you will be like this beautiful and majestic tree! Jesus will cause you to be a picture of robust STRENGTH, VITALITY and good SUCCESS.
So keep looking to Jesus, and you will see His unceasing blessings in your life! Amen!
