Welcome to Deep Roots Ministries

We are to encourage believers to grow spiritually in Christ by discipleship; which is to continue and expand the work Jesus did. Everything God did was because He is LOVE. We identify precepts and principles from God’s Word, ONLY a Biblical perspective of God’s power, love, and faithfulness. Scriptures identify God’s plan for our lives. God’s will to us is revealed in His Word, so spending time reading and studying the Word of God brings more than information; it brings transformation.

The Lord’s Prayer Teaches Us How to Pray

January 19, 2023

He said that we should pray “in the following manner,” or pray “like this,” not to literally “pray this.” The Lord’s Prayer is primarily a teaching model. Moreover, before teaching His disciples how to pray, Jesus told them what not to do in prayer.

Trust God’s way 1st

January 16, 2023

Prayer, fasting, and reading God’s word will always be our strongest weapons. There are no revolts, riots, wars, or parades that can ever take the place of falling to our knees in our prayer rooms and seeking God with our whole heart. There is no meme, no good quote, or thought that can replace God’s…

Humble yourself

January 12, 2023

When we try to do things our own way, that’s when we get off track. You can run as fast as you can, but if you are not even on the right track, you won’t get where you are supposed to go.  To go the right way, in God’s timing, we have to trust what…

ARMOR OF RIGHTEOUSNESS

January 11, 2023

Sin is real. It does more in the fabric of our souls than we know. It is a seed of destruction. Many of the behaviors and outcomes we often experience are a result of sin. Our thoughts, our realities, and our decisions are affected by it regardless of one’s awareness of it  Today we read…

What’s In Your Hand?

February 4, 2023

Do you have a desire to be used by God but feel like you aren’t qualified, or you have nothing to offer?  In Exodus 4:2, we find Moses making excuses because he felt inadequate to do the job God called him to do. God’s response was, “What is that in your hand?” And Moses said,…

The Right People, Right Place, Right Plan

January 31, 2023

Jeremiah 29:11 says, “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil to give you a future and a hope.” God made you for a purpose. He knows what that purpose is. When you don’t know why something was made, you can easily abuse…

Jesus teaches us to pray to the Father about our spiritual needs. The Lord’s Prayer acknowledges our fallen nature.

January 22, 2023

It says that as we repent, God will forgive us. The Lord’s Prayer goes further by commanding us to forgive others. As we ask God for forgiveness, we also have to forgive those who sinned against us. As our gracious heavenly Father forgives our debts, we forgive our debtors. Forgiveness is not an option. Christ…
