Jere. 17:5-8 “Depend on God”
Change is possible. First we need to dream big, because God is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we can ask or think. Second, we need to depend on God. Jesus said without me, you can do nothing (Jn. 15:5). This is what Jeremiah quoted God as saying.
Thus says the Lord: “Cursed is the man who trusts in man and makes flesh his strength, whose heart departs from the Lord. For he shall be like a shrub in the desert, and shall not see when good comes, but shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, in a salt land which is not inhabited. Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, and whose hope is the Lord. For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters, which spreads out its roots by the river, and will not fear when heat comes; but its leaf will be green, and will not be anxious in the year of drought, nor will cease from yielding fruit.”
We have a choice. We can trust in the Lord, or we can trust in ourselves. Without him we can do nothing, but we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us (Phil. 4:13). I hope and pray that you will be able to dream big and depend on God to do some great things in the next 20 days.
We are half way through 40 days to Easter. I hope that meditating on God’s Word is making a difference in your life. I believe that each of us can be transformed by the renewing of our minds. Have a great day.
