“Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, and whose hope is the Lord.” - Jeremiah 17:7 NKJV
If we read Isaiah 43:13; 1 John 3:20 and Jeremiah 23:23–24, we see that God is omnipotent which means He is all-powerful; omniscient which means He is all-knowing; and omnipresent which means He is everywhere (or all-present). Being all-powerful, all-knowing and all-present, means our Father has an incredible perspective when it comes to anything about our lives.
When I read the above verse with this in mind, it changes the way I view it, especially when we look at the intended use of the word ‘blessed’ in the original language. It isn’t referring to someone who has been blessed, this verse actually reads, “The man who trusts in the Lord and whose hope is in the Lord is a man who is continually being blessed.” How awesome is that?
I don’t know about you, but I want to live a blessed life continually, and since God is all-present, all-knowing and all-powerful, and He wants to love on me and see me blessed simply because I’m His child, what better thing can I do with my life than trust Him and place my hope in Him? No one else even comes close to being like Him anyway.
“I declare that I am being blessed because my trust is in the Lord, not in what I see. I will not fear because my confidence is in Him…”
