A Daily Devotion for Monday, November 21


Jeremiah 17:7-8


But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord,

whose confidence is in him.

They 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.”


We can't count on God to make us rich or trouble- free, or even healthy. But, we can trust in him to help us through life. He will not fail us if we ask for help. I believe this is what is being said in these verses from Jeremiah. "It does not fear when heat comes". We know things will happen that challenge us, bring us pain, even break our hearts. But we know fear is useless, and trust in God brings peace.


Almighty God, I don't expect a perfect, painless life. But I do trust you to be with me and to help me. When I especially need your guidance, your peace or your forgiving ear, you do not fail. My goal is to live in that trust 24:7. I am thankful. Amen

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 river bank 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. I want to be that tree! I think I sometimes am, but then I don’t always handle troubles and worries as I should. I do trust in the lord, but I am human and I often rely upon myself too much. But I do want to be that tree. The one with the deep roots, green leaves, and lots of…

This particular verse required me to read the above verses as well.(17:5-6) it is comparing people who depend on their own solutions by straining and struggling through every day, unhappy for reasons they cannot seem to understand ,because they are trying to live according to their own strength instead of trusting in the stre…

I find a message of hope for all who trust in Jesus. He will always remain faithful even if we don’t. Jesus remains strong and His love and grace is always there for me. “Great is His faithfulness”.


Dearest Lord, thank you for your faithfulness. You don’t give up on me even when I stray. Knowing how much…

Jeremiah17:7-8


How firmly and deeply am I rooted in God’s care for me? Are those roots in close contact with the Living Water that sustains me through times of trial? The answers to these questions are a predictor of the fruit I am able to yield. I cannot grow and thrive without God anymore than a tree could grow and thrive in my bathtub. That knowledge produces trust that allows faith over fear.


Prayer - God of abundant blessing, thank You for strengthening and deepening my roots and providing the gift of Living Water to sustain my soul. Amen
