Check the root (iii)

Roots have two roles:
– To anchor the tree in the ground and to take up water, minerals and nutrients from the soil to help the tree grow.

Mark 4: 28 explains the growth process of the tree. “for the earth bringeth forth fruit of herself: first the blade, then the ear, after that the full corn in the ear. “ When we allow the word of God take root in our lives, we’re guaranteed a life of success and fulfillment.

Success has many definition. But in this context, it is doing what God has called you to do. You are successful when you do what God has called you to do. It doesn’t matter if it resonates with societal expectations, or definitions. One truth is sure, before you can do what you’ve been called to do, you have to know what you’ve been called to do.  And in the process of knowing your purpose, God’s word need a root in your life.

A tap root is the root that grows down deep into the soil, anchoring the tree with extra strength.

The discussion is about what has had root in our lives. If  negative thoughts and expectations of sicknesses and failures have a deep root in our life, those seeds are bound to grow. The soil accepts everything  planted in it. But if we allow the word of God to have its full root in our life, we are bound for a time of completeness and peace with him.


 Inspirational Nugget = The devil doesn’t mind your going to church so long the word of God doesn’t have root in your life. Please check the root because it determines the fruit.
