Where does your Heart trust today in man or GOD?
The Prophet Jeremiah makes a distinction between those who trust in God and those who do not, he describes two identical plants, one in a desert, and one by a river. For a few days they will look alike, but what happens after a few weeks? The plant in the desert will dry up because its trying to send roots out but everything around it is dry so it dies, but the plant by the river sends it roots out by the stream, because everything around it is moist and wet so it grows. Just as the person who trusts in human beings will end up like shriveled bush, the person who trusts Good will be like that plant that has its roots by the water, they grow in God, they do not doubt when they see drought and when they see drought and they produce fruit.
Jeremiah 17:7-10 7Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is.
8For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit.
9The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?
10I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings.
The Lord is saying only I know the full magnitude and capability of every one’s heart. I’m always searching the heart in order to bring in you into the NEW that belongs to YOU.
