Rooted in Love

 

“And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lordʼs holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.”

Ephesians 3:17-19 NIV

Being rooted and established in Jesus which means your relationship with Him is your anchor, your security, your place of rest in the midst of chaos. His love is not shaken. Your hope can rest on Him and not in your present circumstances.

My friend, stop worrying about being “normal” or getting things “back to normal.”

There is no such thing as normal.

There is routine, there is what you are used to, there is “how things used to be,” but there is no normal.

Life changes, pandemics disrupt everything, jobs change, children grow, people pass away, new seasons of life come whether you are prepared for them or not.

Let go of trying to be normal and focus on being established in love with roots that grow deep in the soil of who Jesus is.

Give Him room in your heart and let Him live through you.

New seasons bring new normals but Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever.

Draw your security from God today and dig in to get the most from this time in your life.

Daily Routine

Make worshiping Jesus a part of your daily routine.

Wash your face.

Brush your teeth.

Worship Jesus.

Since we are receiving a Kingdom that is unshakable, let us be thankful and please God by worshiping him with holy fear and awe.    

Hebrews 12:28 NLT

When you worship, you open your heart to be filled with His unshakable kingdom. A kingdom not of this world that changes the world.
When you worship and see Jesus for who He is, you see the world around you through His eyes.
And you love more, hope more, give more.
Worship fills you with the wonder of heaven and an awe for the one who left it to rescue a lost world.
And when you are full of heaven, it overflows to the earth.
May you be so full of heaven today that it overflows in moments of awe on the mundane moments of your day and make them…heavenly.
You were made for this. 

Daily Routine

Make praise a part of your daily routine.

Wash your face.

Brush your teeth.

Praise the Lord.

Praise automatically resets your perspective as you raise your eyes to see God move in the world around you.

Train your heart to see the reasons and the whys.

Train your eyes to see how God loves, provides and guides.

“Good-hearted people, make praise your habit.”

‭‭Psalm‬ ‭64:9-10‬ ‭MSG‬‬

What are you praising the Lord for today?
