Rooted

I accepted Christ as a child and knew that my decision was lasting but didn’t know where to turn next.  I didn’t receive good direction and teaching.

Therefore my roots weren’t strong and deep to withstand challenges.

It reminds me of the parable of the Sower from Matthew 13:5-6… “A farmer went out to sow his seed.  As he was scattering the seed, some fell along the path, and the birds came and ate it up.  Some feel on rocky places, where it did not have much soil.  It sprang up quickly, because the soil was shallow. But when the sun came up, the plants were scorched, and they withered because they had no root.”

Love Heart, challenges and temptations will come your way.  Stand strong in the Lord and don’t give an inch or Satan will take a mile.    

Stay rooted in God’s Word, be careful the company you keep and walk away from dangerous situation…just walk away! ~Deb

“No temptation has seized you except what is common to man.  And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear.  But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it.”    (I Corinthians 10:13, NIV)

As he was scattering the seed, some fell along the path, and the birds came and ate it up. Some fell on rocky places, where it did not have much soil.  I sprang up quickly, because the soil was shallow. But when the sun came up, the plants were scorched , and they withered because they had no root.” (Matthew 13:3-6, NIV)

You hear the word and receive it with joy.  But if you have no roots, it will only last a short time.  When trouble or persecution comes; you will fail.

Dig deep in the word, worship with fellow believers, stay in constant communication with the Father and your roots will grow strong and deep. ~ Debra
