build a strong root system

Psalm 1:1 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. 2 But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. 3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

We cannot always see the need of doing the spiritual things that create strong spiritual roots like taking time for daily meditation in God’s Word to become rooted in our relationship Psalm 1:2, 3. The need for having strong roots is revealed when we are in a storm. Some storms we can speak to; some we can go through; some we must endure. The deeper your roots, the stronger you are to endure storms.

Proverbs 12:12 tells us that “… the root of the righteous yieldeth fruit.” Great meetings, conferences, seminars, and revivals are wonderful to add spiritual life to us. Being planted in the local Church is also included as a part of God’s plan for us (Psalm 92:12-14). God uses ALL of them to help us but the primary way He designed life to flow to us is from the roots of our personal relationship with Him. Time with Him in the Word, worship, and prayer are the spiritual tap roots of our relationship. We have to make time for these things. Time with Him helps get us rooted in our redemption to produce fruit in our walk. Colossians 2:6, 7 says, “ As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him: 7 Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.”

Pastor John Rasicci is the founder and Pastor of Word of His Grace Church in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, where we are building people who are building the Church. Pastor's ministry mission is to help people discover God's dream for their Life, the Local Church, and the Last Days' Harvest. With a strong emphasis on the grace of God and with a prophetic voice, Pastor John preaches and teaches in churches, conferences, and crusades both locally and throughout the world. He has produced books, tapes, and other teaching materials to empower, enable, and equip Believers with the Word of God. Pastor John is married to his wife Candy who with their three children, Krista, Joanna, John Anthony, and two son-in-laws, Matt and Doug, serve together in the ministry. After graduating from Kent State University, Pastor John pursued a career in professional baseball before accepting the call to the ministry. He and his wife, Candy, received their ministry training from Rhema Bible Training Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
