Like this tree…
What’s important about a tree is not its outward appearance when it’s full of leaves and fruits. The roots of a tree are what matters, but they’re not seen because they’re underground.
At least once a year, during a certain season, this tree will undergo some change, with the loss of leaves and a period where it will not bear fruit.
However, because of its strong roots, it will once again be the tree it always was. Not even time can change this.
On several occasions during the course of our life, we will be like this tree.
There will be moments of achievement where we’ll receive admiring glances.
However, there will be moments where we’ll endure “droughts” (losses, downgrades, etc.), and we’ll get other kinds of glances and questions.
So how do you deal with this situation, which may cause some discomfort? It’s simple!
If your roots remain in the river, which is the Holy Spirit, in the “season of the Most High,” He will honor you!
Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, and whose hope is the LORD. For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters, which spreads out its roots by the river, and will not fear when heat comes; but its leaf will be green, and will not be anxious in the year of drought, nor will cease from yielding fruit. Jeremiah 17.7-8
When you trust, even during the dry season, you will yield fruit!
