A few months ago, I was given an indoor plant – it is potted in a most unusual way. The soil has been placed into a coconut fibre lining and has string laced decoratively all the way around it to hold it in shape. It looks fantastic and thus far seems incredibly happy, growing and producing new shoots all the time. Rather than watering the plant from the top, it is submerged in a dish of water. It is amazing how much liquid is soaked up through the fibre; it absorbs and retains the moisture very well.
When we surround ourselves in God-like things, such as his word, his principles, and his strategies, then we too give ourselves a good chance of absorbing and retaining goodness. We need never feel parched when we are close to him.
Lord you are so available to us and will happily open your door to anyone who seeks you. Help us to place ourselves in your keeping. Amen
