"The person who trusts the Lord,
will be blessed." Jeremiah 17:7 GN
At this very moment, do you feel blessed? Do you know what "blessed" means? In Noah's Webster's dictionary, one of the meanings is: (a.) Imparting happiness or bliss; fraught with happiness; blissful; joyful.
"The person who trusts the Lord will be blessed." The verse doesn't say that the person who trusts the Lord will be on easy street. It doesn't say that the person who trusts the Lord will be living by smooth sailing. It doesn't say that the person who trusts the Lord will never know hunger, financial crunch or sadness.
What it does say is that the person who trusts the Lord will be BLESSED--that if YOU trust the Lord, YOU will be BLESSED--And what does "blessed" mean again? Blissful, joyful, fraught with happiness. During good times or bad.
As with all relationships, trust shouldn't be a reflection of only good times. A true trust relationship is built and strengthened by good and troubled times.
Because of our human experiences and relationships--it can be hard for us to trust--to even trust our own heavenly Father. But we can. Of all the relationships we will ever invest in and encounter, our trust in our Father will never go into default. He canNOT be untrue, untrustworthy to you--He just loves you too much!
Can you trust Him? The bigger question is can He trust you? When you trust Him with ALL of you, with ALL your life, with ALL your good & bad--your spirit is so BLESSED. You are fill with a joy--a sparkling joy--that just glows through all of you.
This CHRISTmas season, give yourself the gift of trust--wholehearted trust, that no walls can keep out--with your heavenly Father. He desires this kind of relationship with you--can you give it to Him?
