While doing research on the Texas Longhorn I learned that they have a high drought-stress tolerance. Immediately after reading that I thought of Jeremiah 17:7-8…
“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.”
I have always loved that verse for the truth it communicates. At its core, trusting God means standing resolved in His character of love and faithfulness to see us through…no matter what adversity we face. Trusting Him enables us to endure trials, without fear of the outcome, because much like the Longhorn, we will have a high drought-stress tolerance.
