So the last time we talked about being “Radical” which a lot of people don’t know but the word “Radical” has to do with the Roots of a tree.
SO what I think of when I see that is the
“Roots that he revelas” is the stuff the Holy Spirit is leading you to take out. You see so many times we think God take this from me , but we are the ones who have to do the work to allow him in those places he can’t do it for us. He knows exactly where to gp in your Root System. Trust me He knows. He knows where to go in your whole “Spiritual House” and he knows what to Sweep and what to Mop. You see the stipulation we can have the knowledge of what we think is gonna happen or maybe you know exactly whats gonna happen, but without PERMISSION its NADA!
So today I wanted to go in and talk about the “Root RESIDUE”. Now this part is the the stuff that remains, you know what lets take a look at the dictionary for this word.
Residue | ˈrezəˌd(y)o͞o |
noun: a small amount of something that remains after the main part has gone or been taken or used.
• a substance that remains after a process such as combustion or evaporation.
So there we have it. SO we already know what Roots are and what it means to be radical so combining the two “ROOT RESIDUE”.
Some of you may know this or not about me, but I’m really facinated by Snakes and reptiles. There is this Reptile Zoo guy I follow on insta His name is Jay Brewer and his @handle is “@jayprehistoricprts”. Anyways reason I love following Him because he explains these animals in detail. He also exapins how you can be safe but also so that you don’t harm them. Now thats enough about that I’m gonna show how it all makes sense in my mind. I’m gonna bring my mind to you as well so you too can understnad what happening up there haha.
Here we go one of the things that facinated me about Snakes is the Snake Eggs is this…
When you seee the eggs they need to be kept warm and moist and another thing about these eggs is some of them don’t make it all the way through to life, but because they are being hatched in a “Reptile House” most of them will make it and they also get help by Jay who will make a small incision in the egg to help the babies survie, but the rest is up to them!
Cool right? No just me okay stick with me even if you don’t like snakes..
Now I know what you mean what does this have to do with your topic “Root Residue” ? Well it reminded me of thr Holy SPIRIT with us he points to us. He helps us and the rest is up to us. The “Permission” part is on us. We need to GIVE HIM “PERMISSION” TO GO IN THOSE ROOTED PLACES and go back and clean the Residue.
So these baby snakes have all this goop (the Residue) on them because they were incubating in their eggs and their Mom did her part, but these babies still need to get wiped down once they truly come out. Jay the Snake Reptile Guy wipes that Residue off, becasue there is Residue when you just got either uprooted or when you are first born for cold blooded animals and even for warm blooded animals we need to remove ehe residue.
Lets allow the Holy Spirit to remove the Residue in every situation espeicially the roots he reveals. Lets not get freaked out when
So When the Holy Spirit goes back to remove something its not cause you got issues or anything like tha tbut maybe there is some residue and he wants to remove it all from your life so there is nothing left remainig!
Does this make sense? I hope so. THese are some thing the Lord has been mimistering to my heart about and I pray it helped you all to go deeper and further and not thinking that there is naything wrong with you if something comes up. We as christians don’t need to overcomplicate it. Keep your thoughts pure and focused on Jesus. Go be with Him don’t try to overthink you and Him it takes time away.
So lets look at this verse together:
Philippians 4:8 The Passion Translation (TPT)
8 So keep your thoughts continually fixed on all that is authentic and real, honorable and admirable, beautiful and respectful, pure and holy, merciful and kind. And fasten your thoughts on every glorious work of God,[a] praising him always.
HEY EVERYONE YOU SEE THAT UP TOP… if thats not what youve been thinking shake it off and get to thinking those beautiful thoughts he has for you and in that process he’s taking care of that Root Residude. Trust and know thst God only brings peace not anxiousness “BE STILL”.
Psalm 46:10 The Passion Translation (TPT)
10 Surrender your anxiety![a]
Be silent and stop your striving and you will see that I am God.
I am the God above all the nations,
and I will be exalted throughout the whole earth.
So again as he’s removong the Root Residue its not a bad process its great one that comes with all the stuff its a beauirful time in Jesus all let Him love you and you love on Him in the same process!!!
