Blessed are those who trust in the Lord; the Lord will be their trust.
They are like a tree planted beside the waters that stretches out its roots to the stream:
It does not fear heat when it comes, its leaves stay green; Jeremiah 17:7-8
Those who trust in the Lord do not fear when trials come, since they are planted in Him and draw their strength from Him. Cursed are the ones who trust in human beings. They are like the tumbleweed in the desert that have no roots. When a strong wind comes, they get tossed around and blown away.
We can always have hope when we put our trust in God, no matter how bad things look.
