Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness.
Colossians 2:7 NLT

Colossians 2:7 is a great word. How much courage this should give us!

Let your roots grow down into Him. What are you doing to send your roots down into God? Know His Word—study it, memorize it, meditate on it. Spending time with Him will send your roots deeper every day, and you’ll grow in your walk with Him.

Let your lives be built on Him. Don’t build your life on sinking sand. Build on the Rock that provides a solid foundation for your faith. The world builds on so many things that fade away; build on what will endure forever.

Your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught. Jesus said that He is the truth (see John 14:6). If your roots are growing ever deeper into Him, your faith will grow ever stronger.

You will overflow with thankfulness. Today, let thankfulness overflow in your life, Thank God for His goodness, His provision and the fact that He left the glory of heaven and came to this earth to be your Savior so you could live this life with courage and strength. Think about all He has already done for you—and He has plans for far more than you can even imagine. Let thankfulness overflow in your life!

Today, enjoy living in God’s strength and courage.

Pit Stop Power

Jesus said that without Him, you can do nothing; but if you keep your eyes on Him, your joy will overflow and you’ll produce much fruit and bring glory to God (see John 15:5).
