ROOTS. We need them to grow. Where our roots are planted will determine how well we will grow.

Only roots planted in the love of God will flourish. Paul writes in Ephesians 3: 17, “Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong.”

Are your roots anchored in God’s love? If not, why not? Has shame or sorrow or sin kept you from sinking your roots deep into God’s love? If so, let God help you push through that pain, for there is freedom on the other side. 

Growth begins in the roots. How are your roots? Sink them deep into God’s love, and you will know abundant life! 

I pray in Paul’s words for you today that God “from His glorious, unlimited resources…will empower you with inner strength through His Spirit. Then Christ will make His home in your hearts as you trust in Him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep His love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that come from God” (Ephesians 3: 16-19 NLT).

Now, it’s YOUR turn: How do you sink your roots into God’s love? Please leave your valued comment in the box below.

  1. I like to sit quietly in God’s presence when I first get up in the morning and listen to MercyMe’s song, Beautiful. The lyrics remind me of how much God loves me and His thoughts about me.

    • You are right, Tracey. Sitting in God’s Presence is sitting in His love. It’s a great way to be reminded of how much He loves us! Thanks so much for your comment.

      Blessings,

      MaryAnn
