Manna For Today: Wednesday, March 8, 2017
Colossians 2:7 – Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness.
This text shows us the proper way in which we must grow. We are to grow deep into Him but not for the purpose of being deep or to appear intellectual before men. The test to my depth in Him is found in whether or not I am able to draw nourishment from Him.
If I find myself malnourished in the drought life often presents, it could be a lack of depth in Him. I need to go as deep as is required to drink from the sweet well of life that is our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Pray right now, Father, give me the grace to reach the depth in Him that yield refreshing nourishment to my thirsty soul. Now thank Him in advance for what He has done and is doing for you through Christ. My friend, you are very near rivers of life; don’t give up. Keep on believing!
Remember, you are loved!
Peace and blessings!
