Have you ever prayed to God for help? Without even realizing it, you were praying for far more than just physical strength. When we pray for help, God sends us His kind of help. What is God’s kind of help? When God helps us, He doesn’t just give us strength to get through difficult circumstances. He gives us the help of His Holy Spirit and places key people in our lives to help us fulfill our purpose. These people are there on divine assignment to help us get to where God wants us to be. Before David was crowned king of Israel, God sent thousands of men with a perfect heart, men who were experts of war, who had faces like lions, who ran fast, who were valiant men of valor, and who understood God’s plan, all in order to help David receive the crown. You would have thought that David didn’t need any help, and if God wanted him to be king, he would be king no matter what. However, God sent thousands of men to surround him, protect him, aid him and induct him into royalty. No one ever becomes great alone. There is always a team of people that God sends us to help hoist us up into our purpose. So never think that you can do it alone. Never assume that all you need is God’s help, while you refuse the help of people that are sent by God. They are divinely placed in your life, and you are divinely placed in theirs.
“These are the numbers of armed warriors who joined David at Hebron. They were all eager to see David become king instead of Saul, just as the Lord had promised.” (1 Chronicles 12:23 NLT)
Prayer: Father, thank You for helping me understand how You help Your people. Thank You for every person You have placed in my life to help me reach my divine purpose. Show me how to help my husband in the way he needs it. Give me wisdom on how to bring out the best in my children. Show me how to help my friends fulfill Your purpose for their lives. Show me how to help my church accomplish it’s purpose in the earth. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
A sincere thank you to our Daughters of the King Daily Devotional Writers.
