Trusting in the Word…

  • Jeremiah 17:7 - 8 (NKJV) 7“Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, And whose hope is the Lord. 8For 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.

  • Jeremiah 17:9 - 10 (NKJV) 9“The heart is deceitful above all things, And desperately wicked; Who can know it? 10I, the Lord, search the heart, I test the mind, Even to give every man according to his ways, According to the fruit of his doings.

Ways, practices, disciplines, understanding

Can I get blessed the wrong way?

  • Jeremiah 17:11 (NKJV) 11“As a partridge that broods but does not hatch, So is he who gets riches, but not by right; It will leave him in the midst of his days, And at his end he will be a fool.”

Can i get blessed the right way
Can I get blessed the right way?

  • Psalms 1:1 - 3 (NKJV) 1Blessed is the man Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, Nor stands in the path of sinners, Nor sits in the seat of the scornful; 2But his delight is in the law of the Lord, And in His law he meditates day and night. 3He shall be like a tree Planted by the rivers of water, That brings forth its fruit in its season, Whose leaf also shall not wither; And whatever he does shall prosper.

  • Our hearts unlock all the riches of God as we love and serve Him…

Unlock riches with your heart

  • Revelation 3:18 - 19 (KJV) 18I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.  19As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. 

  • Our meditations and dreams are of Him and His greatness

  • Our speech is according to His Word

  • Our time is spent with Him or doing His will

  • Our hope is in Him and we rest in a place of joy and peace

  • Our leaning is on His understanding and wisdom

  • Our hearts thrive on knowing and loving Him

  • Our plans are not our own, but according to His will
