was blown down by the winds it had been raining for several days in the ground was very saturated and when i walked that morning and saw it on the ground i was so surprised because it wasn't a hurricane the winds were strong but wasn't any unusual for this part of the country a company amount to remove it and i was talking to the foreman i said our kids leave those small winds were able to blow over this big sturdy tree he explained that way the oak tree has an extensive root system that extends even beyond the canopy most those routes are less than twelve inches deep because the ground was so saturated when the wind started blowing those sir its roots didn't have anything to anchor too the roots and the brown came loose in the tree toppled over we have some tall
countries in our yard is well some close to the house and i said i hope it doesn't happen to them he said it won't that top a pie doesn't rely on surface route for stability its roof go down the it won't be affected a lot of rain how wins by loose soil it has deep roots so in principle in life we all have things come against us health issue finance is go down child gets off course the wind and rain comes every person what's going to determine whether or not stand strong and outlast that storm is how deep are your room the reason some people always worried upset offended they have shallow roots their move the traffic the weather
artie boss but what somebody said always been tossed to and fro but when you have deep ribs when you know god is in control when you know he has in the palm of his hand when you know no weapon formed against you will prosper when you know he's equipped to empower jew and anointed do you moved by everything on the surface you don't it upset when you get caught in traffic you know god is directing your stance you don't get offended when somebody did you wrong you god is your vindicator live discourage because you didn't get the promotion you know god has something better in store you don't go around guilty because you made a mistake and give up on your dreams you know gods mercy is bigger than that mistake when your roots go down deep you not moved by what doesn't go your way you live from the place of peace
the winds may blow the storm may com but no when it's all said and done you'll still be standing you'll still be praised you're still be smile and you're still be victorious the scripture tells us here be steadfast immovable always abounding in the work of the lord this is a choice we have to make it's going to be moved by these circumstances i'm not going to what they're saying about me still my joy i have a destiny to fulfil i'm not going to live worried about my finances i'm gonna do my part interest god to do what i can't do i'm not going to my value on how this person treats me if they me feel special i know who i am i'm a masterpiece i've been
we and wonderfully may my self worth doesn't come from people it comes from my creator are you steadfast immovable do you roots go down d if not life is going to be lacking mercosur your joy in peace will depend on your circumstances how people treat you what goes your way that surface living that shallow god is saying be steadfast be immovable you have to dig down deeper as long as your allowing circumstances determine whether or not you are happy you'll never have real victory sometimes we use in our fate to try to control our circumstances and it's better to use my face took troll myself in the mid to those circumstances when you're in peace that's a place of power here's the key
if you dont have peace on the inside you're not going to peace on the outside and some people wonder why they can't have good relationships they can't be successful why they can't get ahead is because they have shallow routes your stay in peace on the inside not fight everything that doesn't go your way than yours these things on the outside begin to improve in every more before we leave the house we should the decision nothing that happens made me day is going to upset me i have the grace to handle any thing that comes my way you have to decide ahead of time if the traffic is you're not going to get upset if somebody's room you're not gonna be offended if you don't get the contract if your plans don't work you're not going to go around sour in self pity that's heaven deep roots
victoria now we're era late not long ago the water was like glass it was his calm and peaceful s can be does this little walk and threw it way out to the centre it sit ripples across the whole lake it look like i created a big this airbus i'd affected all the water the truth is a foot down that water did move she's still is calm and peaceful there one fierce and i'm worried you see that ripple one turtle corn on one warrant something's wrong not on the surface affects the water down deep stays com one way you can tell how deep your roots are is how easily did you get upset if the pebble they get thrown into your lake are causing you though who's your joy be frustrated you need to go down deeper withdraw somebody's talking about me it were trying to make me look
that's why i'm sour that's a pebble there isn't this bothering you is you're on the surface or traffic was backed up last week give me an extra hour to get home another pebble when you deep roots you'll grateful to be alive you great but i have the job you grateful to be here you're not focused so what's wrong you're too busy thinking but what's wrong i didn't get the promotion the medical report wasn't good a friend betrayed me that's why i'm discouraged and i'm not make it those things but in the big picture those or pebble when you know god has beauty those ashes when you know he'll pay you back for the unfair things and even though the surface is disturb deep down where you choose to live you'll feel a piece you'll be at rest you'll know this too shall pass paul tells us in colossians let your roots grow down
deep in him what are your roots going deep down in if you put your trust in people sometimes people will let you down he put your trust in your job your career your money unfortunately things can change and you don't have what your hair but when you let your roots grow down deep in hand you say god i know you're my provider you my healer you might have been cater i recognized your the source of everything then when difficulties com body does you're wrong you have an unexpected talent you won't fall apart live in self pity you'll be strong stable immovable why you roots go down deep in this is what a lady did in the scripture some workers brought young boy in from the field a terrible headache and passed out they placed them boy in the mothers arms
she soon realise that he wasn't breathing he had died this wasn't a pebble this was a bolder everything on the surface was disturbed it look it was all out of control but this lady had deep roots she knew that unexpected challenge wasn't a surprise to god she didn't fall apart you didn't get better she was steadfast immovable and she got a horse headed out to see her friend the prophet eliza when he saw her coming in a hurry from a distance he's one of his men to go see if something was wrong they after and said man alive she is concerned is everything ok she said all is well kept on writing he called back up and ask you the same thing are you sure everything's ok she said it again all is well how could she make that
meant when she was in the middle of a crisis she wasn't then on the surface responding how she felt she went what she knew and she knew god was still on the throne he knew he could make a way even though she didn't see away why she ended up come into your house and playing for the little boy was healed he came back to lie a great miracle but like this lady sometimes it's not pebble thrown into your water so to speak it's a bolder we all face unexpected challenges things we didn't see come at a loss a lay off a divorce a sickness it's easy to get overwhelmed go round in self pity wonder why it happened but if you go down deeper not talk about the problem not complain about how bad life's treating you instead like this lady have a report of victory all is
god is still on the throne this tool i'll pass because you have deep roots then even when life throws you a bold even when you should panic you will feel a piece that passes understanding you will have a string to endure what should have taken you out the enemy did his best he pursue you'd be toppled over depressed given up but he miscalculated he could only see the outside world couldn't see was what was underneath the surface it didn't realize you have ruth you're steadfast immovable yes you're circumstances but you weren't rooted in your circumstances you are rooted in the most target he never changes he has all power freedom was diagnosed with what looked like a terminal disease
it was a virus that he picked up overseas and here children beautiful why successful career it's always been healthy active we play sports together life was good then this unexpected challenge he could have been depressed started complaining but like this lady he deep roots he didn't tell anyone about the diagnosis he just kept doing what he had always done when you face unexpected challenges something big don't let that become the full because of your life don't let it consume you two were all you think about is massiveness my mistake ma break my loss keep live in keep to your same routine the best that you can some people let the problem become there kennedy they become known as the crisis so to speak in a like on the man went to a divorce
i'm the lady that has cancer person that lost a loved one that's what happened to you that's not who you are i don't let a temporary event become a permanent label in the scripture thomas doubted that jesus rose from the dead eight days later jesus appeared to thomas and change dismal thomas's doubting was a very short period of time little over a week buddy became known as doubting thomas sometimes people will try to label you if you don't say the officer and keep moving forward you can become what happened to you instead of becoming who you were created debate this young man they just kept going to war loveliness i'm really not letting that sickness dictate his lie
he was taken in experimental drop the doctors had told him how you'd probably lose his hair not have the energy he may have to cut back on this schedule he can go into work nobody knew anything was long there were times he'd get tired and have to go lay down but he didn't complain about he just keep doing to the best of his ability what he would have been doing if he didn't have that sickness when he was first diagnose the cell count of the infected sales with twenty seven million just two months later that sail count had come down to less than two thousand the doctors were bath they said we don't understand it but we consider you cure this disease basically is undetectable in your body that was you ago today he still healthy and home what am i saying when you have deep
when you're not move by circumstances you're saying by your actions gotta trust you i know you're bigger than this sickness greater than this opposition stronger than this difficulty that's when god will make things happen did you could never make happen the apostle paul in the scripture had a lot of challenges unfair situations he was false the accused and beaten with rod lot about put in prison he was shipwrecked spent not on the open sea without food and water to study is lie it was one challenge after another next twenty paul gives us a secret of living a victorious lie he said no these things move me he was saying yes i was falsely accused but i didn't let it my joy
spend my life trundle pay people back late god beam of indicator yes i was shipwrecked plans did work out but i didn't go around complaining anew god was still on the throne yes i've put in prison it wasn't fair but i didn't sit around in self pity ass in writing letters they may chained up wouldn't let me leave but they couldn't keep my work from going now paul rode over half of the new testament much of it from prison cell how could he do this he had deep roots said none of these things move me we all have these things maybe grouchy boss negative medical were poor businesses low down there's always somethin trying to move us trying to pull us out of peace pull us at a rest somebody cut you off in traffic that's the
things are you going to let it move you get up ruined your day or are you going to live from a deeper place and stay in peace that coworker its rude left out of a meeting that these things or somebody sat in your favorite seed in church you sitting there for thirty years they we came on purpose to be to the things can and even in turn the thinking behind you totally off key these themes patriots beating the taxes without tom brady these things ass a bold or not a pebble are you allowing these things to move you you can't pray them away that coworker they get on your nerves if he does lee three more people are going to show up just like in the these things are test that we must pass jesus said so
allowing yourself to be upset he didn't say if you'll stay and faint if your pray hard enough i'll take away all the traffic the opposition this isn't the disappointment he said we'll com but you don't have to get up there you don't have to be moved by then look at that negative medical report and say you don't move me go live worried god restore and health back into me look at that time this of course and say you don't me as for me house we will serve the law or just a matter of before you get into your destiny look at that bank statement inside you don't move me you may be low right now but i know increases on the way and no i will lend did not moral that coworker that's all ways get known your nerves trying to aggravate you when you say that monday just say hello these things i know who you are george
my son not only my name out of that i know who you are i know the secret have deep roots i'm staying in peace jesus toll peter to take his bow and launch out into the deep peter caught a great hall of fish jesus was saying in effect peter get out of it shallow waters quit living on the surface long as you're doing that letting your circumstances determines your joy then it's going to limit you peter went out to the deep waters he caught so many fish that is nets begin to break when you do it gods why you're not move people circumstances disappointment because you're in the d you're going to have an abundance of joy abundance of peace and abundance of what you need i wonder how much more we would enjoy lie if we we live in on the surface and go down deeper we live
too many things upsetters somebody talking your own social media that's one of these things your job not to respond to every person protist right now prove your point your job is to be steadfast the immovable that means let it go don't pay it any attention good you're tells us to rule our own spirit it doesn't say to rule somebody else's spirit you can't control what other people think about you what they say about if you're trying to rule them that's manipulation you're gonna be frustrated i've learned it's a full time job to try to my own spirit i don't the time the energy the wisdom or the risk on its ability to try to rule somebody else's sphere we in two months time worried what they're saying climate change they're mine quit letting that move you
part of ruling your spirit is do not let that poison in you ships don't say because there's water all around them they see when the water gets india there may be negative circumstances all around you some ice breton room you're dealing with an illness this has gone down you got good reasons to be upset offended worried here's the key don't let it get in new rule your spirit you can't really large your neighbour the internet the stock market but you can rule your own spirit a powerful when we can say with paul none at all things move me i'm not upset about what they're saying god spotty ma battles not worried about the medical report nothing can snatch me out of god's hands i'm not discouraged by this disappointment i know god didn't bring me this far to leave me
made away in the past i know he'll make away this time that's room in your own spirit that's assigned to have deep roots well joe this all sounds good but i made a lot of mistakes i got off course it was own fault if you just on the surface you'll live guilty can do down on yourselves the accused will constantly whisper you blew it you're dead god's never going to bless you but when you have deep roots you oh god mercy is bigger than those mistakes you know is calling on your life is irrevocable message translation says gods gifts and calling are under fool warranty never cancelled never rescinding that means doesn't changes mine because we made mistakes doesn't give up on us because we're not we're we're supposed to be when god hand picture
before you were formed in your mother's womb when he breathe life into you he puts you under a fool lifetime warranty saying they're mine no matter where they go no matter what they do i have a destiny for them to fulfil what am i saying your mistakes did not cancel gods plan for your life we believe in those large you'll washed up settled per second best get back in the game god is not finished with you he knew every mistake you would make and he already lined up a new plan may have fallen down the right attitude is i'm not stay and down i know i am under full warranty no god will get me still too where i'm supposed to be interesting when the winds blow a tree back and poor pressure and strain on the root system you would think that was
damaging the tree and making it weaker but research they found that is actually strengthening the root system seems like the pulling and stretching would be tearing the roots apart but the movement is making it easier for the routes to grow it's the same way with us that difficulties should have to poor do damage your route so to speak brought you out weaker but just the opposite happened you came through that challenge stronger with greater competence your character was debate the storm was sent to stop you but god hundred around and used it to strengthen you that mistake that the board that sickness shooting do defeated lonely discouraged but when you come back you're not only still be standing you'll be back than you were before your roots are getting strengthen asking you today to quit living on the surface being bought
third by everything that doesn't go your way go down deeper quit being moved but these things life is to shore to let circumstances herman your joy start ruling over your spirit that it's time you attempted to get upset to be worried offended discouraged try a new approach be steadfast the immovable if you'll do this i believe and declare because you have deep roots he's going to fight your battles he's going to vindicate to promote you here you and take you to the fullness of your destiny jesus today and if you receive it today and you say then i'd like to give you an opportunity to make jesus the lord of your lie would you play with me say lord jesus our repent of my sins come in to my heart
