“A man is not established by wickedness, but the root of the righteous cannot be moved” (Proverbs 12:3).
Have you ever been walking through the woods and had to step over some tree roots sticking out of the ground? If you’re someone who wants to follow Jesus, you’re like that; your roots can’t be moved or dug up. It might not seem that way when you’ve made a mistake, or when you’re not as you’d like to be, but it’s certainly true in my experience. When I’ve felt like giving up, God has shown me Himself. God is love, and God is concerned with our welfare. He’ll keep you strong; He won’t let you be tested beyond the point where you can remain steadfast and firm (1 Corinthians 10:13). Surely we can praise Him for that?
