Deep Rooted and Blooming

Consider a flower seed. It sends a shoot down into the earth in order to be securely grounded. At the same time another a shoot grows upward to become a thing of beauty that will bring joy to the world. Without a strong root the beautiful plant that the world sees would  fade away. The higher the growth of the plant, the deeper the root must go to keep it grounded and strong.

So are our lives in Christ. Without a deep, abiding, and grounded faith the work we do withers and fades. Our attempt at ministry dies on the vine if we have no deep root in Him. Just because a ministry appears gloriously beautiful does not mean it is lasting. Without deep roots of faith and dedicated commitment, efforts will fail.

Let you roots grow deep in Him. Study His word, and pray for His guidance in your life. If you want to bloom with His purpose, your roots must grow deep enough to withstand the winds of circumstance that will disrupt your life. When you are grounded in Him and His will, no weapon formed against you will succeed.

In Him is your life, your heart, and your purpose. Be planted and bloom.
