Our lives and those of our loved ones are in danger of dying without a fountain of living water. The Word of God provides this for us, regardless of the circumstances or problems in our lives. It is something that we need to be grounded in from an early age and if we are not, almost anything can and will take its place.
Trees need a good established root system or they will not reach maturity and so do Christians. Those in our world who do not believe or who choose to believe a lie have very shallow roots or none at all.
In God’s Word, the palm tree is used as an example for a life lived through the grace of God. Since palm trees don’t produce fruit until maturity, their fruit gets sweeter as they age. The palm tree is also made up of living wood all the way to the bark and their roots are the same size no matter how long they are so they are strong and can withstand the forces that life throws at them.
In the fallen world that we live in, we have to have some sort of foundation. That root or foundation is the Word of God. It established the universe and the earth and brought forth life in its abundance. The beauty of the cosmos is reflects the beauty of His design in all of its ways. The heavens declare God’s glory, and we should too!
