Adam and Eve.
David and Jonathan.
Elijah and Elisha.
Ruth and Naomi.
What do all these stories have in common? Each of them could not accomplish God’s work without each other.
Jesus sent His disciples two by two and from the beginning God knew we couldn’t function without people walking along side with us, helping us, encouraging us, and doing the work He has called each of us to do. Apart from Christ we can do nothing (John 15:5) but He will also bring people in our life who will help us too.
We should have people who will pour into us and spend time with us.
We should have people who will battle with us.
We should have people who will walk along side with us and have confidence in us when we want to give up.
From the beginning of creation, God knew we needed other people.
I’m thankful for the people in my life who encourage me forward, who are there for me when I need to talk/vent, but I need more. I need someone in my life who will partner with me in doing the work God has sent me here to do and they’re willing to ride it out. Having these kind of people in our life is so important to furthering God’s kingdom here on earth.
Who is this person in your life?
This is what I’m asking myself today and I’m praying daily God will bring that person/people into my life.
We are better together. We are not equipped to do this life alone.
Do you have people in your life who are helping you do God’s work?
Spend time today reflecting on this question, I know I will be.
