Jeremiah 17:8 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 are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.”
Jesus said there is only one way to develop and grow spiritually, and that is through focusing and concentrating on God. In essence, Jesus was saying, “Do not worry about being of use to others; simply believe on Me.” In other words, pay attention to the Source, and out of you “will flow rivers of living water” OC
Psalm 1:3 That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither– whatever they do prospers.
I am reading this and wondering just how deep are my roots? As I read the devo this morning it made me wonder do I focus more on Jesus or more on the things I feel will help me get closer to Jesus. I woke this morning thinking “yes” I will do what you say. Let people see Jesus with skin on. I have noticed lately that I have been having anger issues. It is hard to be Jesus with skin on and have anger issues at the same time. I know my roots are deep but I think they need to be deeper.
Be blessed today and walk in your freedom!
