Blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in Him. They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit (Jeremiah 7:17)
What have I been learning recently? Healthy roots, healthy fruits. A tree can only grow stronger, taller and more fruitful if its roots go deeper. It's our roots, the stuff beneath the surface, the things in the dirt and in the unseen, that cause us to stand tall, withstand dry seasons and keep bearing good fruit.. even when (and especially when) the odds aren't in our favour.
When we plant our roots in God and who He says we are, we can stand firm when the wind blows and storm comes.
