DEVOTION: “But blessed are those who trust in the Lord and have made the Lord their hope and confidence.” – Jeremiah 17:7
I was flipping through a few verses tonight and the phrase “their hope and confidence” stuck out to me from this verse.
The hope and confidence part. How many things do we actually put our hope and our trust in. Not many.
We hope and trust that our car will start and get us to our destination.
We hope and trust that the roof over our heads will keep us warm and dry.
We hope and trust that the food will eat will nourish our bodies.
These are all physical needs and desires. What about our hope and trust in God the Father. Then it gets a little different. We rely and lean on the physical things listed above but how often do we hope and lean on the spiritual side of things? How often do we hope and lean on Jesus?
That’s the challenge right? Hoping and leaning on Jesus. I would challenge you tonight. Think about how you hope and lean on Jesus. Is it daily? Weekly? How often do you share the small and the big with Him? The desires, frustrations, all that distracts you. The dreams and the failures.
He wants it all. Take a step in that direction today.
