Week 2: In The Soil


A seed needs to grow; the seed and the Farmer know this. No one else is concerned about the growth process—they are only interested in seeing the tree and the fruit. We are God’s seeds, and the soil is our environment. The Bible teaches us that we can bear up to 100 fold when planted in good soil. (Matthew 13:8)

God takes us, and He separates us. He knows we need to be separated from the world because it will create an environment where we can grow. God can use us more effectively in the world when we are separated unto Him—waiting and in prayer—and not intertwined with the world. Just like the seed is hidden away in the darkness of the soil, God is grafting us into Him and forming us when we are alone with our Savior where no one else sees.

Other seeds fell on rocky ground, where they had not much soil; and at once they sprang up, because they had no depth of soil. But when the sun rose, they were scorched, and because they had no root, they dried up and withered away. Matthew 13:5-6 (AMPC)


  • Where we are planted and what we feed on is extremely important because it will determine the tree and the fruit. Are you allowing God to work on your roots and feed you with His Word?

  • God might separate you from everybody, so He can meet with you and talk to you. Are you willing to be in that lonely, humble place with God?

PRAY: Heavenly Father, Your ways are higher than my ways, and they are always good. Thank You for planting me in good soil. Help me to remain separated unto You. Amen


In God’s eyes, the roots are more important than the tree. If we are rooted in Christ, we will bear life-giving fruit, but fruit from the wrong roots will kill us spiritually. That is why John the Baptist said that the ax is laid to the root of the trees. (Matthew 3:10)

The roots grow under the ground in the seclusion and loneliness of the soil. But in that lonely place where you wait on God, there is power. That is where He reveals who you are to you and gets rid of the flesh. We cannot pray effectively and for the nations to be delivered if we don’t feed on God.

“The surviving remnant of the house of Judah will again take root downward and bear fruit upward. For out of Jerusalem will come a remnant and from Mount Zion a band of survivors. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will do this.” Isaiah 37:31-32 (AMP)



Set time aside and pray for the nations to be rooted in Christ.

Going Deeper

We are praying for the nations to be fruitful and that they will see God’s Spirit move like never before, but God looks at the roots. The roots will determine the fruits. #Pray4TheWorld is going beneath the surface where God develops the roots. When the nations are truly rooted in Christ, it will experience God’s power.
