Let God Replant You

‘You are like a garden locked up.’ Song of Solomon 4:12 NCV

A farmer’s fruit tree consistently produced bumper crops and became a real money-maker for him, so he put all his efforts into marketing and never noticed that the tree was dying. Then one day he woke up and realised the root had dried up. He’d been so focused on the fruit that he neglected the root. How about you? Are you focusing on numbers and outcomes, or are you focusing on the purpose, people, innovation, culture and root of your success? Nurture the root and you’ll always have fruit. Ignore the root—say goodbye to the fruit!

Kristin Armstrong writes: ‘Like a plant constrained in the same pot, our roots become bound and twisted. Over time we’re unable to be fully nourished. We can’t grow beyond the limits of our environment. In the words of Scripture, we become “like a garden locked up…a walled-in spring, a closed-up fountain.” But God sees the person inside… the one with potential to become everything He created you to be. He sees the impending bloom of the locked garden, the refreshment of the inner spring, and the sound of the running fountain. He knows you’re inhibited and closed, and He wants to set you free. Some hardships like death and divorce cause a necessary replanting… an opportunity to establish deeper roots and realise our potential in a new container.


Ask God to replant you… to gently remove you, free you from captivity, and find the perfect place for you to grow. Let Him nourish your roots so they extend into the rich soil of newfound freedom.’
