How can I help?

Romans 15:1‭-‬5 MSG
Those of us who are strong and able in the faith need to step in and lend a hand to those who falter, and not just do what is most convenient for us. Strength is for service, not status. Each one of us needs to look after the good of the people around us, asking ourselves, “How can I help?” That’s exactly what Jesus did. He didn’t make it easy for himself by avoiding people’s troubles, but waded right in and helped out. “I took on the troubles of the troubled,” is the way Scripture puts it.

Wow! What a time to be stepping up and asking God, “How can I help? Lord, who will you put on my heart today that needs assistance in these current uncertain times?”

If we will listen to the prompting of the Spirit of God, we can be led right toward those who need our help, finding that God has given us exactly what is needed to serve them.

Ask neighbours, friends and strangers how you can help them too. It may be something practical like groceries or a phone call, or it might be reassurance and prayer, healing or whatever else their particular situation requires.

Jesus went out of His way to assist us so we should continue to do the same. Look for opportunities. Expect God to do miracles wherever He sends you. Keep planting in this time and later on you will reap such a great harvest for the Kingdom of God!

A lighthouse of hope

Romans 15:13 (TPT)
Now may God, the inspiration and fountain of hope, fill you to overflowing with uncontainable joy and perfect peace as you trust in him. And may the power of the Holy Spirit continually surround your life with his super-abundance until you radiate with hope!

My prayer for you today is that you radiate with hope in every situation you face.

Whoever you meet, wherever you are, let the hope that is in you overflow into those around you.

Christ is the Fountain of Hope in us, the reason we can be full of life, full of joy and abundantly blessed in every area of our lives.

Let’s not keep it to ourselves but radiate the glory of Jesus to bring hope in a dry and dark world.

For God, who said, “Let brilliant light shine out of darkness,” is the one who has cascaded his light into us—the brilliant dawning light of the glorious knowledge of God as we gaze into the face of Jesus Christ.
2 Corinthians 4:6 (TPT)
