As a new Christian or even a seasoned one after handing your life over to God situations will arise where you need to be strong.
You will be tested to see where you are rooted. Are you rooted in God?
Are you the type of Christian that stands up for what is right and doesn’t engage in behavior that you shouldn’t
or do you do that when it suits you?
Being a Christian when it suits us is not how God intended us to be.
But guess what, we arent perfect and many people are building a strong foundation with God which means stumbling and picking yourself up, again and again (sometimes I still live here).
There is a point where we reach a spiritual maturity. When we actually want to learn more about God, not because our parents are making us, but because we hear his voice and want to follow him for our own growth.
We start listening and following God.
Eventually getting to the point where no matter the season you are a prayer warrior
You trust whole heartedly and
Love unconditionally, you find that you are rooted in God and nothing can sway you from him.
If you aren’t rooted in God’s love yet it’s okay
You have mastered the first step!
You showed up (applause)
Do you have the desire to learn and grow in God’s love? If so keep reading
Good, you’re still with me.
So how do we get to the point where we are rooted in God?
Well first we have to…
MAKE THE CHOICE
Making a choice to be rooted in God can be really hard.
You know what you are supposed to say and do
Yes, something pleasing to God (ugh… that doesn’t always happen). It would be so much easier to go along with what “they” are doing, but you know that’s not your standard anymore. Your standard is rooted in truth, love and hope.
The choice to listen to God gets easier and easier the more we do it!
After we make the choice to listen to God’s voice above all else we are called to…
I’m sure you know this but you can renew your mind in God!
It’s true, when we pray we do so to take a stand against the devil’s schemes.
Ephesians 6:12 tells us “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything to stand…”
God instructs us to be strong in our faith, not to waiver from his love and truth but to be his servant.
Just as we would defend a close friend or family member we need to defend God who lives in us.
Ladies I challenge you today to be strong when your faith is tested.
Standing firm in faith means never wavering from what you know to be the truth.

Ladies, Hold your head high
Imagine yourself how God sees you…
A mighty queen that is kind, loyal, loving, courageous and obedient.
The bible tells us to “Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace” (Ephesians 6:14-15).
TAKE THE SHIELD OF FAITH
When you are rooted no one can touch your faith. That means when people or evil tries to attack you, you can hold your shield high and defend yourself in a Godly way.
In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. (Ephesians 6:16)
THE HELMET OF SALVATION & SWORD OF THE SPIRIT
The helmet of salvation and sword of the spirit are the word of God (Ephesians 6:17).
As Christians we need Gods word to be rooted, to know what is pleasing to God and how to live a Christian life.
The word of God is the bible
If you haven’t done so already dust off your bible and start reading!
