We are called to sink our roots deep into the Word of the Lord. We receive our nourishment from Him. We receive our living water from His well. His Word is our bread of life. He gives us strength to endure all the storms that life throws at us.
An oak tree starts life as a small acorn. It slowly begins to sprout roots and seeks it's nourishment from the soil it lands in. We are like that little acorn when we first come to the Lord, seeking our nourishment from Him. As we grow in Him, we grow stronger through the trials we encounter.
Then when the big storms of life hit, we have a strong support system to hold on to.
Father, show us how deep our roots really are. Guide us into a deeper relationship with You so that we can sink our roots deeper in You. Remind us that You never change. You are the same yesterday, today and forever. You will not sway when we grab tightly to your mighty arm.
