Colossians 2:6-7


6 Therefore as you have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him,


Seems so simple correct? As you have received him, walk in him. Why do we stumble and fall in this walk so much?


7 having been firmly rooted and now being built up in Him and established in your faith, just as you were instructed, and overflowing with gratitude.


If you are trying to walk in the ‘being built up in him’ part yet haven’t been ‘firmly rooted’ the enemy will crush you. He’ll mock you, condemn you and criticize you every time you try to stand and resist him. Eventually you’ll break because not being rooted simply means you’re still living in your flesh and relying on your own strength.


It’s only after you are firmly (strongly, durably, securely, solid, unflinchingly, unshakeably) rooted in him that you can now ‘be established in your faith’.


Once your faith is established and firmly rooted then will you get to the ‘overflowing with gratitude' part.


Being rooted takes place when you get to know Jesus the person who is ALIVE and LIVING in you. You can not have that anchored trust in an acquaintance, it only comes through an intimate relationship.


Each day, spend quality time in prayer and worship to become firmly rooted in him and you’ll be able to laugh in the enemies face.
