Rooted And Unmoving

That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man;

That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,

May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;

And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.

-Ephesians 3:16-19, KJV

Life is stressful.

Doubly stressful after discovering infidelity and dealing with all the mad aftermath.

What we need in those days are deep “roots,” the sort of roots that refuse to let go of the “soil” whatever Hell throws at us. We all know, like the Apostle Paul, that storms are coming even if infidelity discovery and divorce are not our particular ones.

The “soil” we must sink our roots into deeply is Christ’s love for us.

When the gale hits us saying that we are worthless and rejected,

we can respond, “No! God loves me so much that He chose me, called me friend, and died for me.”

When the gale hits us telling us to be very afraid,

we can respond, “No! God Almighty loves me and has promised never to leave or forsake me.”

When the gale hits us saying we have to do better to be loved,

we can respond, “No! God chose me and loved before the very foundations of this world were made.”

This is what being rooted deeply in God’s love does. It helps us to weather Satan’s strongest storms. These are the lie-storms that try to get us to abandon and cut our connection to the One who loves us more than we are even capable of loving another.

Do not give into the lies.

Even if the storm seems especially fierce and you feel yourself loosing hope, never forget that God loves you so much!
