Light + Life Devotion for September 10

Today's Passage

Jeremiah 17:5–9

This is what the Lord says:

“Cursed is the one who trusts in man,
   who draws strength from mere flesh
   and whose heart turns away from the Lord.
6 That person will be like a bush in the wastelands;
   they will not see prosperity when it comes.
   They will dwell in the parched places of the desert,
   in a salt land where no one lives.

7 “But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord,
   whose confidence is in him.
8 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.”

9 The heart is deceitful above all things
   and beyond cure.
   Who can understand it?
