Where Do You Put Your Trust?


Today I’d like to share the Scripture with you from Jeremiah 17:5-8:

Jer 17:5  Thus says the LORD: “Cursed is the man who trusts in man and makes flesh his strength, whose heart turns away from the LORD.
Jer 17:6  He is like a shrub in the desert, and shall not see any good come. He shall dwell in the parched places of the wilderness, in an uninhabited salt land.
Jer 17:7  “Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, whose trust is the LORD.
Jer 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.”

Thirsting for God


Do you want to live a fulfilled life spiritually? A key to that, I believe, is thirsting for God. This is what the Scripture says:

To the choirmaster. A Maskil of the Sons of Korah. As a deer pants for flowing streams, so pants my soul for you, O God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When shall I come and appear before God? (Psalms 42:1-2)

Rejoicing in the Lord


I’d like to share with you today about rejoicing in the Lord. It’s taken from Philippians 4:4:

Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice.

It’s a simple verse, isn’t it? But it contains a profound truth. Let’s learn this truth together.

There are three lessons in this verse.

1. You should rejoice.

How are you doing today? Are you rejoicing? If you aren’t, well, you should! This verse says rejoice. It’s a command and it’s repeated twice! So whether you feel like it or not, rejoice! Be joyful.

2. You should rejoice always.

Not only should you rejoice, but also you should rejoice always. It means that your joy shouldn’t depend on your situation. Your situation might be bad, but you should still have joy in your heart. Your joy is permanent. How is that possible? Let’s look at the next lesson.

3. You should rejoice in the Lord.

This is the key that makes the above possible. You should rejoice in the Lord. Your joy should be based on what the Lord has done for you, not what other people have done to you. It should be based on God’ love, not other people’s attention.

That’s why you can you rejoice always: because it’s based on a strong foundation. It’s based on God’s love for you that’s never changed.


Let’s learn to apply this verse in our lives. Rejoice in the Lord always!

Building a Fellowship with the Holy Spirit


If you want to live a fulfilled life spiritually, there is one thing you need to do: building a fellowship with the Holy Spirit. It’s important. In fact, I believe that it’s essential.

Let’s look at the verse:

The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all. (2 Corinthians 13:14)
