roots can repair

Jeremiah 17:7, 8 says, “Blessed is the man that trusteth in the Lord and whose hope the Lord is. For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that speadeth 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,”

There is fruit that can come in our life from the water (of the Spirit) in revival rain or river flowing Ezekiel 34:26, 27, but there is fruit from roots, “… the root of the righteous yieldeth fruit,” Proverbs 12:12. With no roots, of course, you can still get water from the revival rain (the spiritual life giving waters flowing in a special meeting) but you will wither in a dry time and fall over in a storm. Roots anchor and stabilize a tree. They draw water. Roots supply nutrients drawn from the soil acting like a food store. Where there are no roots – things wither. Trees with big branches – its roots are as wide and deep as the branches are extending. The deeper the roots the stronger the tree is to endure storms.

One of the most powerful things about roots is that roots that are established have the ability to create whatever pieces are missing from a damaged plant. We too can produce what is missing in our life from our roots in Jesus. Colossians 1:19 says, “For it pleased the Father that in Him should all fullness dwell.” We can draw from the fullness that is in Jesus to heal and restore the damaged areas of our life. Revivals are certainly of God but so are roots. It is time to get rooted in your relationship with God.
