Root the basic cause, source, or origin of something.
I had been struggling with some issues, that I couldn’t seem to shake. I would think I was over it, and all of a sudden the “issue” would reappear. I started to become angry, wondering what was wrong and why it was recurring, for the life of me-I couldn’t seem to shake this problem.
I prayed, fasted and at first glance when God began talking(in HIS time) I thought, ok-REALLY? All HE said was “ROOT” Unsure of what HE(God) meant, I began to pray more. When he finally revealed to me, what he meant by ROOT. I was in Awe. God explained to me that in order to be healed, you must start at the root. Often times, we only touch the surface of our problems. Have you ever argued with someone, and to them it seems like your overreacting? But to you, it feels like your attitude, or argument is warranted? It could very well be warranted, however are you being honest about what your feeling for that particular situation or for another? Here’s an example, I was angry with my daughter for not cleaning her room like I had asked her- I was “doing too much” Now, don’t get me wrong-her room needed to be cleaned, but it didn’t warrant me coming down on her so hard. Why was I mad? It had absolutely NOTHING to do with the room-but everything to do with something she had done a while ago, and I wasn’t quite over it. You see, God needed me to see that when you only deal with things that are above the surface, your only allowing the leftovers to fall beneath the surface. Follow? Let’s say, you are having back problems. You’ve tried all kinds of medications for your back, before seeking medical attention. Once you make an appointment and visit your doctor, necessary steps are taken to find out the source of the problem- Get it? Basically, in order to be healed you have to go to the source of the problem. You can take all kinds of pills, for what you think the problem is, but you’ll never know for certain until you get to the root.
What are you facing in life, be it your finances, job, home car etc. that is recurring and you can’t seem to figure out WHY? Look at the ROOT-Ask God to show you the error of your ways, and be receiving of what he shows you. You have to be honest with self at all times. If you’re not a good steward over your finances, ADMIT TO IT! If you’re a cheater, ADMIT TO IT! If you’re lazy, ADMIT TO IT! Whatever the problem is, be honest with self, get to the root.
Believe that God is with you, that he is guiding you every step of the way as you get to your root! Once HE reveals the root of your problem, act on it! Ask him to help you overcome your circumstance/problem and receive his healing.
