What does it mean to be rooted in faith in God?
When we say someone is putting roots down someplace, we mean that he or she settling there and making that spot home. The phrase points to a tree with roots stretching deeply down into the ground. The roots bring nutrition and hydration up into the tree, allowing it to grow and thrive. They also keep the tree standing strongly in its spot, making it mighty to withstand harsh weather.
That’s what God does for us, when we stand upon faith in Him. He holds us firmly and sustains us daily.
I’m so thankful for that, and I pray He’ll help me to let my own roots grow more determinedly into His power and presence.
“Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness.” (Colossians 2:7. NLT)
