UNDERSTANDING GOD AS YOUR ROOT
February 27, 2022 • Seeds of Destiny
SCRIPTURE: So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. Genesis 1:27.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: As Christians, the Seed of God which we carry in us is meant to be the fuel for authority and royalty.
It has been confirmed that the root of a tree is key to the growth of that tree. No tree can be stronger than the strength of its root. For example, an Iroko tree can withstand any wind because its roots are strong. On the other hand, one reason why shrubs are easily blown away by winds is because of the shallowness of their roots. So, your root determines your strength in life.
Therefore, it is very important to know your root in life. Your root is God. Your Source is Jehovah. Your Origin is the Most High.
It is important to trace your root or source to God because Divinity is the platform for the manifestation of both authority and royalty. Divinity is the platform for existence in both excellence and distinction. Our God is the KING of kings, and the LORD of lords.
As Christians, the Seed of God which we carry in us is meant to be the fuel for authority and royalty. Because we belong to God Whose nature is the nature of authority and royalty, we do not beg to live in the realm of authority and royalty (1 John 4:4). Because we belong to the God Whose Nature is the Nature of excellence and distinction (Psalm 150:2), we do not beg to exist in excellence and distinction.
Our nature in God is likened to the status of a child who is born with a silver spoon in his mouth. A child born into a wealthy family does not struggle to be rich. This is how we are in God. We are not expected to beg in order to exist in the realm of authority and dominion. Rather, existence in the realm of authority and dominion is our natural heritage in God.
REMEMBER THIS: As Christians, the Seed of God which we carry in us is meant to be the fuel for authority and royalty.
- Always realise that God is your Source and Origin.
- Maintain a close contact and connection with God, your Source.
PRAYER: Thank You Lord for being my Origin and Source. I receive the grace to stay connected to You in order to be relevant in life, Lord in Jesus’ Name.

QUOTE: When people encounter you, let them encounter genuineness. When people encounter you in your place of work, when they encounter you in the family, let them encounter originality. Culled from “MAKING FULL PROOF OF MINISTRY” by Dr Paul Enenche.
DAILY BIBLE READING: 1 Samuel 20-23.
REFLECTION: Until you identify your Root, you cannot identify your fruit. Until you discover your Source, you can’t discover your success. Discover God your Source and no devil can stop your success.
PROPHETIC WORD/DECLARATION: Your roots in God shall begin to produce outstanding fruit and results for you in season in Jesus’ Name.
