Deeply Rooted in Hebrews 11

I love God’s divine timing in this week’s focus being Hebrews 11. As so many of us in this area head ‘back to school’, the transition of a new season is felt by everyone. And while emotions are high, the reality of our lack of control is evident. And that struggle is real.

Faith shows the reality of what we hope for; it is the evidence of things we cannot see.

Hebrews 11:1

So while we must have faith in ALL the things and trust Him with ALL the things, what we cannot see often bears the most fruit. The Lord has laid Ephesians 3:14-21 on my heart so powerfully over the past several weeks that it have become my continuous prayer as we enter into this new season.

When I think of all this, I fall to my knees and pray to the Father, the Creator of everything in heaven and on earth. I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.

Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. Glory to him in the church and in Christ Jesus through all generations forever and ever! Amen.

Ephesians 3:14-21

I pray that we are deeply rooted in His love. Yet, like the evidence of faith, the roots aren’t visible. The roots remain unseen yet provide the strength, stability, foundation, and nutrients to survive a storm, transition into a new season, and produce growth and flourish! So while we can pray for good days and provision, let’s boldly pray for deep roots! Let’s be a people of faith that moves and loves with eternity as our direction and union with Jesus as our motive.
