My devotional book, Deep Rooted: Growing through the Gospel of Mark, is designed to help us live out the spiritual principle taught in the first chapter of the Psalms.
Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked,
nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers;
but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night.
He is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither. In all that he does, he prospers. Psalm 1:1-3, ESV
When we pursue a committed, ongoing relationship with God’s Word, we will be like sturdy, healthy trees with roots deep in a life-giving water source. Even in times of drought (difficulty) we will be able to grow and spiritually thrive.
A Gift for You – Scripture Art!
To help you remember this principle, I’d love for you to download and print this Scripture card that beautifully depicts Psalm 1:1-3. One of my daughters created the artwork! To download, click on the image below.
Many Christians long for this, but either don’t know how to interact with Scripture or need help and encouragement to develop a regular habit. This 40-day daily devotional through the Gospel of Mark provides structure and guidance to help you be like that tree. “Rooted in the Word” is designed to help you get in, delight in, and apply God’s Word. You will learn how to interact with and respond to Scripture, not simply read it. Forty days of consistently being in God’s Word, will foster a delight for Scripture, encourage spiritual growth and stability, and lay the groundwork for a life-long, spiritually-healthy habit.
