Jeremiah 17:7 Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, whose trust is the LORD.
A short verse, but packed with meaning. Reminding us of Psalm 1, this verse comes in two parts. There is a blessing not only for the man who trusts in Lord, but the man whose trust (read also: faith, faithfulness) is the Lord. This is talking about not just exercising faith but having and being faith. Many of us like to think that we can handle the first, but the second is surely beyond human reach - this has to come from the Lord: His Spirit dwelling in us and making us more than we are in ourselves.
