What is the most important part of a tree? What is it that holds up the tree in the winds of sin that try to knock it down? Did you know that our lives can be compared to a tree? Trees come in all different types and shapes. Some are big and some are little and some stand tall while helping others that fall. Then there are some trees which man has grafted for quick growth but they offer nothing but a look that produces no fruit and often fall when the first storm comes their way.
The root system is the most important part which determines the longevity of the tree. For if the root system is shallow then it may look good for a little while but don’t expect it to last very long when trials may come its way. Some trees may look good from up top but it is what lies underneath that will determine their future crop.
What happens as the tree matures if it neglects the proper nourishment to maintain the roots in its foundation?
What if the old roots neglect how to grow with the new roots and the old roots only think of themselves? Can you see how this would start a chain of events in self survival without learning from one another and learning to work together to maintain the longevity of the tree?
Doesn’t every part of the tree serve a purpose all the way to the end of each branch from the seeds to its’ leaves? Even the bark serves a purpose to protect the inner core, and at no time does the tree ever stop growing unless something in this world infects it or tries to cut it down. As long as the roots stay intact the tree will always come back and sometimes stronger than before.
It is when the roots of every tree learns to unite and grow together that strength is gained in the family of God. For each tree learns how to help one another with unity during a storm and even lean on each other to help teach each new child that is born.
For every tree that stands is only held up by God and its’ life is determined by the roots that support it during the storms. If America does not Wake Up and begin to turn back to God with His children calling out His name then it is only a matter of time before the tree could fall to its’ knees!!! God will always bring His children back to Him and unfortunately we often have be shook before we will listen.
The Lord is faithful and promises us that when we take heed to His Word and return to Him with repentant hearts that He will restore us after our falls. It is my sincere prayer that America returns to God with all our heart and all our soul for our children’s future. God gives us everything we need and all we have to do is put Him in front of everything we do and allow the love of Jesus to shine through…amen
