I love this imagery of ROOTS!!! I absolutely LOVE it! Our faith, dependence, and knowledge of HIM should grow deeper EACH day!! Roots DEPEND on the earth for nutrients for survival. We should depend on our Savior like that. Our roots should not be dependant on our emotions, our situation, or our own self-sufficiency! Plants can survive in any climate and situation if their roots are deep enough and strong enough to sustain them-deserts, tropical rain forests, humid places, etc. Whatever your season of life, let your ROOTS grow DEEP! He will sustain you! His word is all the nutrients you need. He is enough!
Let your lives be built upon it!!! He is our foundation. I have learned a lot about foundations recently. My hubby and I are trying to buy our first house. WHAT AN AWFUL PROCESS. We fell in love with this one house. Put a contract on it and had it inspected. The house… after futher examination… was not the perfect house we thought it was. THE FOUNDATION WAS NOT SECURE! Yikes! There was cracks and water damage. My heart was broken. But my God, as usual, used it as a teaching tool. Our lives must be built on the foundation, the ROCK, of Jesus Christ. His foundation doesn’t give way in storms, in rain, and it won’t crumble because of cracks. He is eternal. He is good. Build your life on Him. Not the world. The world will crumble and will fade. He alone can hold you up in the craziness of life!
His Word is truth! The more I know Him, the more thankful I become! 🙂 He is my joy and strength and my best friend. He is my peace and I overflow! I love this verse. It is good. KNOW HIM and let Him KNOW you!! Look at the words to this song I have fallen in love with. You can listen to it too, because I’m cool and put it on here!
