In times of challenge and struggle, there is immense value in having people beside you. People who will champion you; people who will call you higher. People who can be trusted to encourage and spur you on.
I created my people for community.
I will be faithful to place you within divine relationships. Relationships which will bring you comfort and joy, understanding and good counsel.
I love it when my children join together!
I love to see my church communing together as one.
I would see my children knitted together, held fast by their love for one another.
Activation: Take a moment to think about the people in your life who you spend the most time with. Think about how they contribute to your quality of life. Thank God for the people of faith that he has placed in your life.
If you feel that you are lacking in this area, ask God for a divine appointment and an open heart to receive new people into your life.
Next, ask Holy Spirit to highlight someone in your life. Maybe someone in your church you don’t know well or a neighbour. Ask Holy Spirit to show you how you can connect with them and bless them this week.
Psalm 68:5-6 (NLT)
Father to the fatherless, defender of widows—this is God, whose dwelling is holy. God places the lonely in families; he sets the prisoners free and gives them joy.
Psalm 133:1 (NIV)
How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity!
Romans 12:10 (NIV)
Be devoted to one another in love. Honour one another above yourselves.
