Trusting God in a Season of Drought

Can you imagine what it would be like if it was winter all-year long? On the other hand, what if summer lasted the entire year? Even though I love the summertime, I wouldn’t be able to handle that much heat. God knew what He was doing when He created the Earth and all of the seasons that came with it.

He knew that seasons weren’t meant to last forever. 

Seasons change.

But what about the seasons of life? 

Everyone has experienced a season of drought before. Whether you were unemployed, single, or having financial setbacks, you know what it feels like to sit and wonder when God was going to answer your prayers.


5 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.


God shows us in Jeremiah 17:5-6 that everyone will experience a season of drought. However, that season will be a lot more difficult if you rely on yourself instead of putting your trust in the Lord. It even goes as far as to say, “They will not see prosperity when it comes”.


When was the last time you missed out on God’s blessing because you wanted to be in control?

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.”


When you release control and put your confidence in God, you won’t have any more worries. Like this tree, you won’t fear the heat nor will you stop bearing fruit. God tells us that seasons of drought will come, but we won’t be overtaken by these times if we put our trust in Him. So, will you trust him today?
