Jeremiah 17:8

“He is like a tree planted by water, that sends out its roots by the stream, and does not fear when heat comes, for its leaves remain green, and is not anxious in the year of drought, for it does not cease to bear fruit.”

This must be an Australian tree—“no worries” in a year of drought!

Have you ever seen trees in the desert? They are usually small, gnarled, and look like they are barely hanging on. But watch what happens as you approach a stream of fresh water. As you get near the bank of the stream, the trees are suddenly tall and strong. Often there are flowers and fruit on the trees.

What makes the difference? Their roots go down deep and draw from the water in the stream. In Psalm 1, the stream represents the Word of God. When you realign your life away from those things that are building the world’s value system into your mind, and you fill your life with things that saturate your heart and mind with God’s Word, then one day you will suddenly realize that your spiritual life is healthy and thriving. You are growing!

Even better, the leaves of your tree will remain green even in times of drought. You will remain spiritually healthy even in tough times. God is inviting you to come and meet him as you drink in his Word.
