In 2012, the Lord gave me a vision of three types of trees:
- Those that are planted along the river with roots that reach into the water.
- Those that are planted near the river with roots that reach towards dry land (where the majority of trees are planted).
- Those that are planted above the river with roots that reach into dry land.
“This is what the Lord says:
‘Cursed are those who put their trust in mere humans, who rely on human strength and turn their hearts away from the Lord. They are like stunted shrubs in the desert, with no hope for the future. They will live in the barren wilderness, in an uninhabited salty land.
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.
The human heart is the most deceitful of all things,
and desperately wicked. Who really knows how bad it is? But I, the Lord, search all hearts and examine secret motives. I give all people their due rewards, according to what their actions deserve.’ ”
–Jeremiah 17:5-10 (emphasized)
