He is like a tree planted by streams of water….
A true man or woman of God is like a tree planted by a river. They’re grounded and settled. They have deep roots. Their waters run deep. They have depth of character and strength of will because they have roots.
I’m sure you know people who are all showcase and no warehouse. They talk a big game, but when the storms of life blow, their façade crumbles!
Friend, God wants you to be strong on the inside. He wants you to be strong and stable so that you can stand in the midst of the gales of life.
What are you doing today to deepen your roots in Jesus Christ? Do you find yourself sacrificing your time with God when the storms of life aren’t blowing?
I’d like to challenge you today…wherever you are in your walk with Christ… to take some time to situate yourself near Him so that you’ll be ready when life’s storms come upon you.
Because He’s the only way you’ll be able to stand strong when these times come!
A TRUE MAN OR WOMAN OF GOD IS GROUNDED IN JESUS CHRIST.
