The soul living without God won‘t know good and prosperity when it is staring him (or her) in the face. They are always looking for something more. Something better. The next good thing. Something to satisfy the hunger and the emptiness.
The one who trusts in the Lord has a soul that is satisfied. They have everything that is needed - even in times of difficulty. There is no fear. No want. No worries. This soul is full. Complete.
“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. He will be like a bush in the wastelands; he will not see prosperity when it comes. He will dwell in the parched places of the desert, in a salt land where no one lives. But blessed is the one who trusts in the LORD, whose confidence is in Him. He will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when the heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit” ~ Jeremiah 17: 5-8
