To be rooted in God
-Colossians 2: 6-7
"As you therefore have recieved Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, rooted and build up in Him and established in the faith, as you have been taught, 
abounding in him with thanksgiving." 

In verses 6-7 we can see what is the meaning of being rooted in God:
 when we build up in him, established in faith according to his word, and full of thanksgiving!! Being rooted in God means putting him first above all and in the center of your life, when he is the reason to live, he is the strength for us to keep going. Growing in him fills us with gratefulness in good and bad when he is in the center and our source of strength.  

-Psalms 1:3 
"He shall be like a tree
Planted by the rivers of water,
That brings forth its fruit in its season, 
Whose leaf also shall not wither; q
And whatever he does shall prosper." 

Being rooted in God means loving him with all out heart that even the source of you existence is him! your roots are rooted in him alone- he is the reason, the hope, abounded in deep real love. Being rooted in God means having a relationship with him- rooted in his word, commandments, promises, when he is the way, the truth and the life. 
The purpose of the root is to provide water to the tree from the deep ground so the tree will bring forth the fruits and the flowers. 

When you are rooted in God he will provide the living water for you and you will see the fruit in you life!!!! and the leaf shall not wither, and whatever he does shall not prosper!!!! 
This is Gods promise to you if you will be rooted in him. are you?
