You must water purposefully. Never let the roots become dry. During a “hot, stressful season” or a drought, more watering is required than normal. Remember this rule of thumb: “The more you water, the more juicy fruit will be produced.”
This principle seems simple, but yet we forget and fail to follow through. Spiritually, I must establish a “watering schedule” to prevent “drought stress” on my soul’s roots. Allowing my inner man to become dry damages my fruitfulness.
I must regularly let the water of the Word soak deeply into the soil of my heart.
“My blessing is on those people who trust in Me,
who put their confidence in Me.
They will be like a tree planted near a stream
whose roots spread out toward the water.
It has nothing to fear when the heat comes.
Its leaves are always green.
It has no need
to be concerned in a year of drought.
It does not stop bearing fruit.”
Jeremiah 17:7-8, NET
