Do you need motivation today? Take a look at the palm tree.  You can cut it, but you can’t kill it! The minerals and nutrients most trees need to survive are found on the surface, just below the bark, so, when you cut them, they die. But not the palm tree. Its life comes from within, so it flourishes, even under attack. Listen: ‘…Tropical winds can blow most trees away, but not the palm tree. The stronger the wind, the further it bends—sometimes all the way to the ground. Yet when the storm ceases, it straightens up again and is actually stronger in the place where it bent.
What a picture! We were made to bend, but not break, because the Creator strengthens us ‘…with His glorious power so [we] will have all the patience and endurance [we] need.’ The depth of the palm tree always exceeds its height! While the roots of the average plant go only a few feet under the ground, the palm tree’s roots can go down hundreds of metres in search of water. Go deep, work on your own connection to the Almighty and you’ll never be uprooted or barren or blown away!
