“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.””
Jeremiah 17:8 NIV
Have you ever seen a tree toppled over, roots and all, by a strong storm, stunned to see such a shallow root system? Unless a tree’s roots grow deep into the soil, it will not be able to withstand heavy gusts. You and I are much like trees. When life’s hurricanes hit, if we are not deeply rooted in the soil of God’s Word we will topple spiritually, and often emotionally. Our roots grow deep as we spend time day in and day out in the practices of study, prayer, meditation, worship and fellowship.
Are your roots deep enough for you to thrive through the next big life-storm?🚦
