Memorise: That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love. Ephesians 3:17
Read: Matthew 13:3-9, (KJV)
3 And he spake many things unto them in parables, saying, Behold, a sower went forth to sow;

To be well grounded is to be stable, firm and immovable. Stability is the state of being in a firm or unwavering situation, whether spiritually, physically, or emotionally. Stability is an important element of a settled life before God. God is popularly called Everlasting Rock, the Rock of Ages. God is very stable and dependable; you can completely rest in His love. That is why Hebrews 13:8 says: 14 September 2016 open heavens
“Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever.”
Therefore, stability in the life of Christians is based on God’s unchanging nature. 2nd Samuel 7:16 says:
“And thine house and thy kingdom shall be established for ever before thee: thy throne shall be established for ever.”
“That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;”
Open Heavens 14 September 2016:- Well Grounded?
Are you well grounded in the faith? Are you stable and dependable? Are you settled in your mind about important doctrines of the Bible? Or are you a confused person that is not very sure of what you believe? One of the terrible weaknesses of unstable Christians is the danger of falling victim to fake prophets and false teachers. Some have many ‘fathers and mothers in the Lord’; they are therefore eating regularly from different spiritual pots, making themselves victims of doctrinal confusion. I pray that God will establish you and plant your feet on the Rock of Ages forever in Jesus’ name.
Father, please make me immovable, plant my feet on the Rock forever in Jesus’ name.
