Trusting God = Deep Rootedness

28 Jul

God’s Message:

“Cursed is the strong one
who depends on mere humans,
Who thinks he can make it on muscle alone
and sets God aside as dead weight.
He’s like a tumbleweed on the prairie,
out of touch with the good earth.
He lives rootless and aimless
in a land where nothing grows.

“But blessed is the man who trusts me, God,
the woman who sticks with God.
They’re like trees replanted in Eden,
putting down roots near the rivers—
Never a worry through the hottest of summers,
never dropping a leaf,
Serene and calm through droughts,
bearing fresh fruit every season.  Jeremiah 17:5-8  The Message

Mike recently preached on this passage and I can’t stop thinking about it.  There are two sources and two results depending upon the source we choose.  Adam and Eve had no needs because of their oneness with the Creator–until they chose the wrong source.  Making a quality choice about source (moment by moment) is the key to living fearlessly.
