Nature teaches that the tree most severely impacted by the storm puts down the deepest roots. If we are in Christ, our roots run deep.
… the testing of your faith produces endurance. James 1:3
“Shaken to the roots.” That’s an expression describing a person going through a severe crisis. But nature teaches that the tree most severely impacted by the storm puts down the deepest roots. Branches may be snapped off, twigs broken and leaves ripped away, but deep roots are undisturbed by the howling gales. In fact, they only get deeper and stronger. Your existence is like the tree trunk, up in the tumult. But if you are in Christ, your life is hidden in its roots, which the storms can’t touch.
