I Want to Help You!
"Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed." Ecclesiastes 4:9
I love this image as it reflects the love God has for us and the love we should have for each other. Life isn't a competition. We don't need to compete with each other; we should seek to complement each other. We are all running a race and it can get hard. But it's wonderful when we can run alongside someone who you want to see them succeed and they want to see you succeed. We can HELP EACH OTHER CROSS THE FINISH LINE.
God wants to see ALL of his children cross the finish line, so He gave us a mighty helper - The Holy Spirit. He empowers us when we are weak. He prays for us when we don't know what to pray. He reminds of Scripture and God's promises when we are weary and discouraged. He comforts us when we are hurting. He is our Helper. And with that help from Him we can and should help others.
I encourage you to look around you today and see who needs help crossing the finish line of this week. Lend them a hand, give them a hug, share a testimony, or grace them with a smile. Two are better than one. We need each other. Amen? Amen!
It is my prayer that God uses this message to help you cross the finish line knowing that you are victorious, the enemy is under your feet, God will not disappoint you when you place your hope in Him, and the weapons are forming, but they WILL NOT prosper against you.
