Deep Roots

But blessed are those who trust in the Lord and have made the Lord their hope and confidence.  They are like trees planted along a riverbank, with roots that reach deep into the water.  Such trees are not bothered by the heat or worried by long months of draught.  Their leaves stay green, and they never stop producing fruit. Jeremiah17:7-8 (NLT)

Being a gardener, I love this verse. I can imagine the strong, healthy roots nourished by the river water. They reach toward the river and not away. Can you imagine the healthy green leaves and beautiful fruit?

We all place our hope and confidence in something.

What do your roots hold on to? How are they nourished? What fruit are you producing?

  1. What great questions to ponder as we seek the face of our King. My roots cling to Jesus and I am nourished by the word of God and prayer. He is my living water. Thank you for this post. May we all continue to cling to Him.
