These past few days I have kept seeing the same vision in my spirit: There was a huge tree. Then I saw that the roots of the tree were much bigger than the tree itself. And spreading more deeply into the ground, to the right and left, and there was lot of roots in there. Suddenly I got an impression: this tree cannot be uprooted, because its roots are already very strong.
Then the Holy Spirit said: Be like that! Make sure you continue to keep the hungry and thirsty heart for the truth. Follow every impulse of the Holy Spirit. Pray until something happens, read and declare the word until your spiritual man be blazes. It will push your spiritual root into the spiritual dimension that is contained in His word. That is what keeps you on abiding with Him.
Again and again Holy Spirit affirms: Focus on it. People will never see the growth of the root that gets into the soil, but it is the most important process that is often ignored by many people. They want to appear quickly, they want to show up quickly, they are “rushed” to have “the stage”. You are different! Keep guarding your heart with all vigilance because from there will flow life that evases the death. Be firmly rooted in His word! Always enjoy the process of ‘inward growth’. Absorb every verse of the word that you read. Meditate and speak it!
This morning, I am determined again to be constantly persistent in reading the word. I believe this is the time for me to dig deeper, and focus on building a solid foundation!!
Luke 6: 46-49 (NKJV) 46 “But why do you call Me ‘Lord, Lord,’ and not do the things which I say? 47 Whoever comes to Me, and hears My sayings and does them, I will show you whom he is like: 48 He is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid the foundation on the rock. And when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently against that house, and could not shake it, for it was founded on the rock. 49 But he who heard and did nothing is like a man who built a house on the earth without a foundation, against which the stream beat vehemently; and immediately it fell. And the ruin of that house was great.”
Hebrews 12: 26-27 (NKJV) 26 whose voice then shook the earth; but now He has promised, saying, “Yet once more I shake not only the earth, but also heaven.” 27 Now this, “Yet once more,” indicates the removal of those things that are being shaken, as of things that are made, that the things which cannot be shaken may remain.
Like it or not, the time will come for heaven, earth and everything in it will be shaken! Only those who are built/ rooted on the word will remain. And will reveal/ present the Kingdom of God that cannot be shaken !!
Use this time as much as possible to keep growing, be rooted and be built in Christ. Keep pursuing His reality and let your life experience His fullness! #ILoveGod
