Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, and whose hope is the Lord, for he shall be like a tree planted by the waters, which spreads out its roots by the river, and will not fear when heat comes; but its leaf will be green, and will not be anxious in the year of drought, nor will cease from yielding fruit.
God blesses those who put their trust and hope in Him.
- We trust in the word, love, and power of God.
- We hope in His promise, His grace, and His glory.
- Blessing allows us to experience God’s presence at our side, to look beyond afflictions, and to persist in serving God and others.
