When we feel hopeless,
If we drift into discouragement,
When something drops seemingly out of no where into our
And we’re afflicted in the moment,
Those times when suddenly we’re unable to see the light,
We can hear God’s Spirit speaking through Jeremiah, the prophet,
As he wrote,
“blessed are those who trust in the Lord
Favored are those who’ve made the Lord their hope and confidence.
They are like trees planted along a riverbank,
Their roots reach deep into the water.
Such trees are not bothered by the heat or worried by long months of drought.
Their leaves stay green, and they never stop producing fruit.”
As God’s inspired poet recorded:
“weeping may last for the night, but a shout of joy comes in the morning”
David was a “man after God’s own heart”
To be a person whose after God’s own heart means we keep our eyes on the Lord
To be a person whose after God’s own heart means our heart beats to God’s heart
We want to be like John who laid on Jesus chest to affectionately
To hear His perfect heart beating with love for every person
To be a person whose after God’s own heart means we will do what God tells us to do for Him
