Comments Off on Roots are important

Roots are important

Ephesians 6:13, NIV
Therefore put on the full armour of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.

I am fascinated by trees especially very tall ones and very old ones. Recently I visited Kew Gardens and traversed their new treetop walkway. It was worth climbing 118 steps to enter a canopy of unique trees and enjoy a spectacular view over Kew. It was, however, down in the tunnel afterwards, where you could see the roots, that I was most impressed. To understand how trees work we needed to go underground and see the strong supporting structure without which there would be no food and water for the tree to grow.

It made me think about bearing fruit for the kingdom. We need first to be rooted and grounded and firmly established in our personal faith in God so that when the storms come we shall not be shaken. In the storms of 1987 a group of seven oak trees in Kent was reduced to one oak tree, as six of these trees could not withstand the bashing from the weather.

Paul writes, ‘and after you have done everything, stand’ (Ephesians 6:13). We will only be able to stand in the coming storm if we have strong and healthy roots underpinning our faith and if we’re trusting in God alone. What do your roots look like? Are they being fed on the Word of God, nurtured by the love of God and watered by the one who said he who drinks of the water I shall give him shall never thirst again (John 4:13-14).

Our roots and foundations re very important. The verse ‘Unless the Lord builds the house the builders build in vain’ (Psalm 127:1) not only applies to churches and ministries, it also applies to the house of our life. The wise man built his house upon the rock so that when the floods came the house stood firm (Matthew 7:24-27).

Are our roots and foundations today in the rock, which is Jesus?

Prayer: Lord Jesus I know that to face the coming season in my life I need to be rooted and grounded in my faith and be trusting You. I need to be anchored strongly in You so that I can’t be shaken. Please help me to grow daily in Your love, Your word and Your power. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Righteousness – the Key to the Nations

Psalm 33:12, NIV ; Psalm 144:15, NIV; Proverbs 14:34, NIV
Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord.

Blessed are the people whose God is the Lord.

Righteousness exalts a nation.

We are living in days when our nation, like many other nations of the world, is going through its toughest economic times in living memory. Commentators are having to stretch back into the dark days immediately after the second world war to see their like. With borrowings far in excess of what is prudent, and the government having had to resort to printing more money than is economically supportable, talk of a generation in debt and, even the spectre of national bankruptcy, are fuelling the fires of fear in the minds of the people.

It would be easy to make party political comments about all this, some of which may be accurate, but ultimately none of the political parties have shown any interest in looking at what the Word of God actually says about the situation – or asking if there is any connection between the state of the nation and the moral bankruptcy which is now the foundation of our society. In most of our western nations there has been a systematic removal from the rule of law, of the spiritual principles and the commandments of God which are the requirement for the success of a nation.

The psalmist summed it up so succinctly in our first two scriptures for today. Both a nation (as a whole) and the people will only know blessing when God is the Lord of that nation and the Lord of the people. During the second world war Churchill (Prime Minister) and the King (George VI) called the British nation to prayer (to the God of the Bible). As a result, at the time of Dunkirk the beleaguered British forces had a totally miraculous deliverance from the beaches of France. Later, commenting on this and other amazing victories, the Archbishop of Canterbury said: ‘Why has God preserved us? We may, and we must, believe that He who has preserved our land in a manner so marvellous, has a purpose for us to serve in the preparation for His perfect Kingdom.’

God preserved us then, because the leaders of our nation turned to God and made Him Lord. If we want to know how to get back on track, then the writer of the Proverbs gives us the answer when he says that “righteousness exalts a nation”. How I pray that God will raise up leaders in our nations who will not be afraid of the voices of those who would tread the downward path of moral compromise. People who would remember the lessons of history (for a nation that forgets its own lessons will only have to fight the same battles time and time again) and in humility confess the bankruptcy of man’s pride and choose to walk in the paths of righteousness. Only then will the nations we belong to be exalted and know God’s protection, security and blessing. Only then will we be able to re-discover the purposes of God for our nations.

Prayer: O God, our help in ages past, we cry out to you now to speak to the leaders of our nations, that there will be raised up in each nation those with a fearless voice to declare that it is only living in the righteousness of God that will exalt the nation. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

More Than Sparkling!

John 4:13-14, NIV
Jesus answered, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst. Indeed the water i give him will become in a him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”

We live in an old house. The oldest part of it was probably built about 400 years ago. Shortly after moving in we needed to do something about the paving at the front of the house. It was in a very bad condition and needed to be dug up. One of the workmen put in his spade at a certain point and it disappeared down a deep hole! Little by little they removed the ground at that point and suddenly, much to everyone’s surprise they realised that we had been walking over and parking our cars on top of a deep well! With a long piece of measuring string I discovered that there was over 50 feet of fresh water in the well!

Today we have an old-fashioned hand pump and can pump up as much water as we could possibly need whenever we want it. The construction of the inner walls of the well are such that it must have been there a very long time – it was probably the only source of water when the first house was built on the site.

Over the years I have watched the level of water in the well very carefully – no matter how dry the weather, the level never varies. I can pump hundreds of gallons out of it and within a very short space of time the well has been replenished. Beneath the ground there are hidden springs and it seems impossible to pump the well dry.

The spiritual water that Jesus was talking about to the woman in John 4 is very much like that. We may draw on the sustenance that comes from the water of life, and see how our lives can bless others in a dry and thirsty land, but the supply never runs out – and it is the very best quality water you can find anywhere – even better than the most exciting of sparkling waters you can find anywhere on the planet! When we know Jesus and are filled with His Spirit, the well of our lives is fed by a secret underground spring of this wonderful water, which will flow and flow and flow. No wonder Jesus was able to say to the woman at the well that you will never again be thirsty.

If right now you are feeling very dry, ask Jesus to show you anything that is blocking the flow of His Spirit into your life, deal with it and then invite the Holy Spirit to fill you afresh and for the rest of your days be a source of His ever-present supply of the water of life, that will always satisfy your spiritual thirst and never run dry.

Prayer: Thank you Jesus for showing us how to be constantly refreshed by the flow of your Spirit through our lives. Help me to be ever-conscious of others who are stretching out for “water” in a dry and thirsty land, be willing to share this wonderful truth with them and be a means of God’s wonderful grace to them all. Amen.
