Often you hear people telling us to “trust and hope in the Lord”. But what does that mean? How do someone do that in a practical sense.
I’m glad that the Bible shows us how in Psalm 1:1-3:
- Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the path of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful;
- but his delight is in the Word of the Lord, and in His word he meditates day and night.
- He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also shall not wither; and whatever he does shall prosper.
Like the Jeremiah, the psalmist paints an identical picture of a fruitful man – like an evergreen tree planted by the waters.
I believe this answers the question on how you prosper by practically putting your trust and hope in the Lord. You delight in and MEDITATE on His Word day and night!
