Paul wrote in Ephesians 5:25–26, “Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word.” In the Bible, water is a symbol of the Word of God. The tree mentioned in Psalm 1:3 is “planted by streams of water.” It is healthy and fruitful because it is near the streams and can draw water with its roots. Similarly, you must be connected to the Word of God so it can flow continuously into your life; then you will bear your fruit in its season. You might not receive an immediate answer to prayer, but the season will come because the Word is flowing into your life. Everyone who has questioned your trust in God will see your fruit. You can say, “I haven’t seen any results yet, but there’s fruit in the tree.”
Father, please forgive me for not remaining planted beside the water of Your Word every day. Allow my roots to go down deep into the Word so I can bear much fruit. In Jesus’ name, amen.
