“For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit.” Jeremiah 17:8.
“This is a season of waiting. This is a season of digging down into the earth below.
For when one finds their roots then they gain strength for the journey ahead.
Consider how an old oak tree gathers sustenance throughout its long winters. It gathers strength from its root system to replenish its bark and limbs.
So you too must deep into your reserves. For then you will find the strength and resolve to carry on.
And yet what is to be found within your roots?” says The LORD.
“What have you gathered throughout the year?
Have you carried grievances with you?
Have you carried hurts and unforgiveness?
These things will only breed bitterness within the body. Shake off the old and renew yourself through My Spirit and Word.
Then you will weather the winter storms and months. Then your frame will be able to stand when the great winds blow.”
