Episode 16: How Steady is the Foundation of Your Life?

This week we’re talking about having a firm foundation and how roots can affect a foundation. You have to choose, am I going to seek the Lord and learn how to walk in step with the Spirit? Or am I going to walk in step with the wicked. You have to decide.

Am I going to surrender my life to Christ and let Him build what I can’t build by myself? Do you know how a tree’s roots can permeate a house and mess up the foundation? Have you looked at the roots in your life? Are there bitter ones? Are there past hurts? Is there trauma you haven’t addressed?

This message is about doing an assessment of the foundation of your life. How steady is it? Have you built it on the firm foundation? or on sand. Are you willing to let the Lord dig out the roots and stuff under the foundation so it can become stronger? By the way, it’s not about the roots themselves, it’s about the soil responds to it. It’s not about what happened, it’s about how you responded to it – and that’s what you need to address. Are you ready?

“Oh there’s the root, my parents divorce and I don’t blame them but it’s how I’ve responded to it.”

“Maybe this message is telling you that it’s time to get in, pull those roots out, let God help you build that root barrier, and heal those roots.”

“The truth is from the Word of God, not the news.”


Psalm 1:1-3

Matthew 7:24-29

Matthew 15:10-20

Hebrews 12:14-15

    Thank you Meredith ! This message felt familiar to me ! I haven’t been working on that foundation for awhile kind of just ignoring it ! So it is time I get back to the foundation that God started awhile back in me!

    God bless,

      Good! I’m so glad! Yes, He is our foundation and sometimes we have to get back to addressing the roots and letting Him build!
