Stable Like a Tree Firmly Planted
Stability is something we all need. Jeremiah 17:8 and Psalm 1:3 both instruct us to be like trees firmly planted. First Peter 5:8 says we are to be well-balanced and temperate (self-controlled) to keep Satan from devouring us. To withstand him, we must be rooted, established, strong, immovable and determined in Christ.
Jesus is the best soil to be rooted in. You can depend on Him to be stable—the same Jesus all the time, always faithful, loyal, true to His Word and mature. He’s not one way one time and another way the next time. He doesn’t change with circumstances, so if you are rooted in Him, you won’t either.
God wants to give us power to stay calm in adversity. He wants us to be stable like trees firmly planted, but we choose where we will be planted. Will you be rooted in the world? Your emotions? Your circumstances? Your past? Or will you choose today to plant yourself in Christ? I urge you to depend on Him. His stability can be yours today.
Prayer Starter: God, I want to be firmly rooted in You. You never change, so I know I can count on You to keep me stable in every circumstance.
