Winning Wisdom: You Need Someone


Topic: You Need Someone [Saturday, 30th September, 2017]

Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour. For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up. Again, if two lie together, then they have heat: but how can one be warm alone? Ecclesiastes 4:9‭-‬11

Sometimes, we get into some messy situations, seemingly too deep that we don’t want any other person in on it. In such instances we imagine that staying away from people and trying to deal with the issues on our own is the best option we've got. The truth is, when we isolate ourselves things may get even worse, as the issue bears down on us more, if we dont get access to those who can help us through it. Paul understood this, and in Hebrews 10:25, he admonished us not to forsake "the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.”

Having someone with you through your messy situations is very helpful, as you don’t only get support through the circumstances, you come out of them faster. Yes, the first person we should run to when we are in uncomfortable circumstances is God. We however need people around us to refresh, strengthen us and exhort us, as noted in Romans 15:32 and Hebrews 10:25. It’s okay to feel vulnerable, but you must trust that the brethren are placed by God for mutual exhortation and strengthening. Ecclesiastes 4:12 concludes it thus: “and if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.”

No matter how terrible the situation is, there’s someone placed in your life to help you through it. Reach out to them.

Keep winning daily.

Wise Action:

Whenever you’re going through a situation that makes you feel like running or going under the radar, prayerfully seek out the person positioned by God to support you and help you through it.
