How do expect to stand when all you do is hang around the shallows. Anything that comes your way may easily knock you down.
The bible says that we should be built up and rooted in Christ. Built-up means going up, but to go up you need to get rooted, go deeper.
For height, you must attain depth. All the tallest trees have very deep roots. All tall buildings have deep foundations.
Yet you, want to go higher towards levels without depth in Christ. What happened to those prayers and fastings, those moments of fellowship? Does that assure your depth?
Launch into the deep!
