Bearing Fruit in Seasons of Drought

“But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him.
They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream.
It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green.
It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.”

Jeremiah 17:7-8

The Lord knows there are going to come moments of struggle and hardship in our lives, which is why He gave us this powerful encouragement through Jeremiah.

He urges us to trust and put our hope in the Lord, to deepen our roots in Him.

Seasons of drought will come. For some maybe they’re already here, perhaps you’ve been going through this season for quite some time now; but God promises us that if we deepen our roots in Him, we will become like that tree that not only can withstand even the harshest drought season, but also we will continue bearing fruit regardless of the drought!

This scripture is such a powerful encouragement for when we have lost hope or have given up.

Turn to the Lord, become that deeply rooted tree, because if He is our source of water and life, even the harshest drought season won’t break us, because we will remain steadfast and unbending in the Lord, as well as bear fruit while enduring.

It’s not about mere survival during hard times, it’s about bearing fruit and continuously being fruitful, leaving behind an impactful legacy, powerful footsteps, fruit that glorifies our God.
