Healthy Root, Healthy Fruit
The surviving remnant of the house of Judah will again take root downward and bear fruit upward.
This verse is part of a promise God gave Hezekiah that Judah would not fall to the threats of Sennacherib, King of Assyria. Because Hezekiah prayed, God heard and answered. Our prayers, indeed, can change the course of history and prevent the enemy from claiming our land.
God proclaimed that the surviving remnant of Judah would take root downward and bear fruit upward. To bear fruit, we must first be firmly rooted in Christ and actively nourishing our foundation. Fruit is a natural result of a healthy root system. If fruit is what we want, we must pay proper attention to the roots.
Roots extend downward into the dark earth. Unless we dig into the ground, we don’t see them. We can’t always see what God is producing in us until it comes into full bloom. What He is doing in us is often far greater than what He does for us or through us. Let Him nourish your roots today as you dig deeper into Him.
Have a blessed day!
