To fulfill His purpose


Philippians 4:11-13

11 Not that I speak from [any personal] need, for I have learned to be content [and self-sufficient through Christ, satisfied to the point where I am not disturbed or uneasy] regardless of my circumstances. 12 I know how to get along and live humbly [in difficult times], and I also know how to enjoy abundance and live in prosperity. In any and every circumstance I have learned the secret [of facing life], whether well-fed or going hungry, whether having an abundance or being in need. 13 I can do all things [which He has called me to do] through Him who strengthens and empowers me [to fulfill His purpose—I am self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency; I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him who infuses me with inner strength and confident peace.]

There are things that happen in our lives that move us in the direction of living lighter and being content with less. Moving into a new home brings an opportunity to purge things we haven’t seen, or used, for years. 
What our ever-changing circumstances teach us, if we’re willing to lean into God’s care, is that contentment is a gift. And a simple life is far more satisfying than we expect. God’s ways are never complicated, and our lives are least complicated when we trust Him to know what we need and give what we need. 

The path of our spiritual growth is clear to God. We can’t see what He has planned for us, so we can’t know exactly what it’s going to take to prepare us for it. Growth can be hard and painful. But it’s the key to a simple, secure, and surrendered life of trust in our unfailing Father.

He wastes nothing—not a single minute—of the journey He knows will lead us to the place of our highest purpose.

Deep Roots Ministries International, Inc.

What does Deep Roots Ministries do? We encourage believers to grow spiritually in Christ by discipleship. Continuing the works Jesus did. How do we do that? We study God’s Word to develop a Biblical worldview. Scriptures identify God’s plan for our lives. God’s will to us is revealed in His Word. Together we spend time reading the Bible and studying the Truths of the Word of God. Where do you do this? In our home and others homes with family and friends (small groups), teaching videos, and meetings. Where we are invited to share. Colossians 2:6-7 And now, just as you accepted Christ Jesus as your Lord, you must continue to follow him. 7 Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness.
