Scripture of the Day - October 31, 2012

Jeremiah: 17:7  Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is.
8  For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit.

You have to be careful where you spread your roots. If you trust in the Lord and spread your roots in His Word you shall prosper. 
But you have to be careful that you are not deceived by the vain philosophy of man. You may have your roots in good soil now, you may be prospering now and things may feel 'oh so right' but what if this soil is not of the Lord? 
Thus saith the Lord GOD; Shall it prosper? shall he not pull up the roots thereof, and cut off the fruit thereof, that it wither? it shall wither in all the leaves of her spring, even without great power or many people to pluck it up by the roots thereof. (Ezekiel 17:8-12)
If our roots are not planted in the Word of God but in the philosophy of man God will pluck them up. Nothing will prevent Him. 
Wide is the path that leads to destruction and many there be that plant their roots in it. 
Know ye not what these things mean?
