“AND THE LORD SAYS: . . . “

Cursed is the one who trusts in man, who draws strength from mere flesh and whose heart turns away from the LORD.”

Jeremiah 17:5 NIV

 

Read:  Jeremiah 17:5-8

 

Jeremiah is a book of truths; very simple truths.  We can find comfort in these simple truths, it does not take a lot of brainpower to understand all GOD is giving us.

 

“Cursed is the man…”   These are simple and straightforward and not confusing.  Yet, look at those around you.   Are they drawing strength from GOD or are they dependent upon themselves or the instruction and influences of others.  We have a new society being fed the influences and instructions of government over the loving commands of GOD.

 

Those who do trusts in GOD above all else can find comfort in a complementary verse.   Jeremiah 17, verse  7 tells us: “But blessed is the one who trusts in the LORD, whose confidence is in HIM.”

 

Is your confidence in the LORD, yourself or another?   There is only one right answer.  If you are trusting in yourself or another, your time is ticking away.  Until you trust GOD, in time, you will feel HIS cursings, with pain and suffering in your heart.  Trust in GOD only and be Blessed.

 

Today’s prayer:  “I call now on the TRINITY OF GOD, to protect me from the sins of man.   Today, I will trust in YOU, LORD.  My confidence is in YOU alone.  Instead of being cursed, I will curse the evils of this world.  Amen.”
