Dealing with the Heat

Dealing with the Heat


In order to deal with the heat I typically head to the beach or the mountains. Where’s your favorite spot?

However, the “Heat” is not just a temperature thing. It can refer to our circumstances, our frustration level, and things beyond our control.

The Word of God gives us this picture of trees near the water where they are not bothered by the heat.

For us to be like that, we need deep roots connected to the life-force that is Jesus. Then we can get through anything.

“But blessed are those who trust in the Lord and have made the Lord their hope and confidence. They are like trees planted along a riverbank, with roots that reach deep into the water. Such trees are not bothered by the heat or worried by long months of drought. Their leaves stay green, and they never stop producing fruit.” (Jeremiah 17:7-8 NLT)
