It always touches my heart when we are given prayer requests from those we work with, like this:
“I want God to enable me to be firmly rooted in Jesus so as to draw nourishment from Him to accomplish greater things for God and weather every storm and challenge.” What a request! This reminds me of Paul’s words to Colosse:
“Therefore, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving” (Colossians 2:6–7).
We can see from these verses that our brother’s prayer request is right in line with what God was teaching through Paul. Our WALK IN CHRIST should grow if our spiritual roots are drawing the nourishment we need. This comes from a daily commitment to feed on His Word. Maturity will result (“built up in Him”) as we take in the right kind of food. With this development, we become equipped to face the storms and challenges that God allows to come our way.
