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.
Those who trust in God and hope in Him will receive spiritual blessing.
- We trust in the word, the love, and the power of God.
- We hope in His promise, His grace, and His glory.
- Blessing allows us to feel the presence of God at our side, look beyond our present afflictions, and persist in our service to God and others.
