They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.
To be unshakable is to be spiritually grounded. We must allow the Word to become part of us. Its truth should so penetrate our minds and hearts that it shapes our thinking and our actions. It is God’s desire that we grow daily in our understanding of Him and His Word so that we will remain faithful to the end.
Prayer for the day:
Lord, thank you for giving me the confidence and security as I allow your Word to penetrate my mind and heart. As I put my trust and hope in you and not in my own strength or wealth, I am like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. I will always bear fruit and my leaves will always be green. Though attacks and storms may come my way, I will not be anxious or worried because you are my rock and my fortress. I will be unshakable; I will prosper in perfect peace without fear; I will soar and not sink; I will be a victor and not a victim; I will persevere to accomplish all you have planned for my life in Jesus' name. Amen.
