“As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, as you have been taught, abounding in it with thanksgiving” Colossians 2:6-7, NKJV.
Even though we are rooted and grounded in our knowledge of God, the enemy stops at nothing to try to uproot us. He quickly finds, however, that it is not an easy task. Deep down there are things that we know. Deep down we know there is a God and that He loves us. Deep down we know that He will never leave us nor forsake us. Deep down we know that He has chosen us for His divine purposes and plans. Deep down we know that we are redeemed by the precious blood of Jesus and have been made new. This is what being rooted and grounded means—holding on with everything we have to what we know deep down.
It doesn’t matter what the enemy is trying to do, all that matters is what Jesus has already done on the cross!
Declare this from your heart today: “I will not uproot and I will not give up! I will hold on and become even more rooted and grounded, and fully convinced of God’s love. I will let God’s WORD permeate my heart and soul to the very core of who I am. The enemy will not be able to win in my life. Through Jesus Christ, I am victorious! I am an overcomer! I am a champion! God is greater than anything I will ever face in this life and with His help I can do all things!”
