For as far as Judah had fallen, all hope was not lost. The Lord promised blessing to all whose confidence was in Him.

Scripture: Jeremiah 17:5-8

ESV Text: Jeremiah 17:5-8


KJV Text:

(Alt. audio): Chapter: 17

     5 Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD. 6 For he shall be like the heath in the desert, and shall not see when good cometh; but shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, in a salt land and not inhabited. 7 Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is. 8 For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit.(KJV)


Hymn: TLH 437:
Who Trusts in God, a Strong Abode

Hymnary.org — Organ Audio

1. Who trusts in God a strong abode 
In heaven and earth possesses; 
Who looks in love to Christ above, 
No fear his heart oppresses. 
In Thee alone, dear Lord, we own 
Sweet hope and consolation, 
Our Shield from foes, our Balm for woes, 
Our great and sure Salvation. 

2. Though Satan’s wrath beset our path 
And worldly scorn assail us, 
While Thou art near, we will not fear; 
Thy strength shall never fail us. 
Thy rod and staff shall keep us safe 
And guide our steps forever; 
Nor shades of death nor hell beneath 
Our souls from Thee shall sever. 

3. In all the strife of mortal life 
Our feet shall stand securely; 
Temptation’s hour shall lose its power, 
For Thou shalt guard us surely. 
O God, renew with heavenly dew 
Our body, soul, and spirit 
Until we stand at Thy right hand 
Through Jesus’ saving merit.
