A Weekend Of Planting Yourself

It's interesting to walk by the side of the creek beds on the property. Trees that have been standing there for decades are slowly having their roots exposed by soil erosion. The base of these towering giants is now a mass of huge, twisted roots that keep it standing tall.

The roots aren't just what you see here, though. They travel hundreds of yards in every direction, intertwining and spreading well beyond the immediate soil. Just being able to see their roots won't kill the tree or make it unstable to the point of collapse.

It just means you can see its firm foundation.

And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doth shall prosper. Psalm 3:1

Just because your roots are a little exposed doesn't mean that you're going to keel over. It just means that you've weathered the storms that have tried to weather you away. Your firm foundation goes well beyond what people can see above the surface - you're rooted and ground in Jesus Christ.

Make this a weekend of planting yourself. Make sure that you're so firmly rooted by the rivers of Living Water that a little erosion won't matter at all. A firm foundation in the Lord means that you're willing to stand tall and refuse to wither away. Planting yourself in Christ is an action that will bring blessing beyond measure, as He promises to prosper those who trust in Him.

Sounds like a wonderful way to spend the weekend.
