A tree’s roots keep it securely anchored in the ground. Even when the wind blows or storms rage, a tree with roots that run deep into the ground is not easily knocked down or uprooted. Today I encourage you to be LIKE A TREE-plant the Word of God deep within your heart and let it anchor you in times of trouble! You might wonder: how do I do that?…Well, you can start by reading God’s word DAILY, meditating on it day and night, and actually DOING what it says to do! You see, it’s not enough to only HEAR the Word in church on Sunday mornings-hearing the Word only plants the seed. However, once a seed has been planted you must nourish it and do all you can to make it produce fruit!
You can nourish your seeds and continue to make yourself strong in the Word of God by putting the Word in your prayers, everyday conversations, and even in your songs of praise and worship. If you have God’s Word incorporated into every part of your life it is not easy for a lie, test, or storm to uproot you from the truth. For example, difficult times may fool some into believing that certain things are impossible; but those deeply rooted in God with His Word all around them, know that ALL things are possible with God! So be like a tree-let God be the soil that you are rooted in and the Word of God be your roots! And allow the Word to run deep into your heart that you may continue to be STEADFAST and IMMOVABLE in the Lord, even when the storms of life are raging!
I Corinthians 15:58 (New King James Version)
“Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.”
-To God be the Glory
