Are We Connected?

November 17th, 2009

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God. There are times in each of our lives that we must evaluate the people surrounding us. While we love to have people within our inner circle, it is imperative for us to make sure each person around us has been placed there by God and not because of our fear of being alone. In life there will be times when you will experience lonely periods, as well as discomfort from within. You will desire to do the same things you were able to do before but your spirit man will reject it. During the times when your spirit is willing but your flesh is weak, you must make sure the people around you are such that they can uplift you in prayer and not encourage you to sin against God.

Today, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you. My friend, it is time to ask that one question to everyone around you. The question that will determine if people in your life are there for a reason, a season or a lifetime (purpose). What is the question? It is very simple! The question is … Are We Connected? To be connected means to join or fasten together usually by something intervening. At this point in your life, you no longer need one-night stands but covenant partners in the Lord. People who pray for you fervently and faithfully. People who hold you accountable for the actions you perform and responsible for the assignments entrusted to you. The Bible declares in 1 Samuel 18:1 - And it came to pass, when he had made an end of speaking unto Saul, that the soul of Jonathan was knit with the soul of David, and Jonathan loved him as his own soul.

My brother, my sister, do you have any person in your life willing to endure the fire with you? Do you have anyone in your life who sows into your spirit? Beloved, there will be times when the entire crowd is screaming your name. They will applaud everything you do. But there will also be times when the same crowd will criticize and scorn you. They will try their best to tear you down. During these times, do you have any brothers and/or sisters connected with you in the spirit? Better yet, are you connected to anyone in the spirit? The Bible declares in Proverbs 18:24 - A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother. Are We Connected? Prayer for Today: Father, please show me the people who are connected to me no matter what happens. In the name of Jesus … Amen!

Scripture Reading for Today: Proverbs 17:17 & Genesis 17:2

May God Bless you at Your point of need!
