Stay connected! This is not a time for withdrawal, from me or my family. Have I not commanded you to not give up meeting together? “But we can’t!” you say. I tell you that you can. Push past inconvenience, push past discomfort, push past weariness, and connect. Meet in the ways you can. This is a time to stay connected and to deepen your friendships, deepening your heart connection, with me, and with those that I have joined you to.
The enemy seeks to sow division, disconnection, indifference, and apathy in you at this time. He seeks to discourage you, to pull you into isolation, into procrastination and into drawing you aside, but I am reconnecting you as my body. I am strengthening the cords that bind you together. I am binding up those who have become disconnected through pain and hurt. I am re-joining those who have been wrongly disconnected. Some connections I am severing, and I am bringing new links.
Ask me who to deepen your friendship with for you will be surprised at some of the links I am strengthening at this time. Ask me if there are connections in your life that are not for now. Ask me to show you where there is pain or disconnection that I want to heal. Ask me to show you where you are agreeing with the enemy’s plan for division and disconnection. Ask me for I want you connected and aligned rightly in this season.
Ephesians 4:16 NIV
From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.
Hebrews 10:24-25 NIV
And let us consider how we may spur one another on towards love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another – and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
Ecclesiastes 4:12 NIV
Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.
