There are people God has placed in your life for reasons that might not make sense to you at the time but then in due time, in that particular season of your life, you recognize that it is a blessing from God that they are there for you.
In Exodus 17:8-13 Then came Amalek, and fought with Israel in Rephidim. And Moses said unto Joshua, Choose us out men, and go out, fight with Amalek: to morrow I will stand on the top of the hill with the rod of God in mine hand. So Joshua did as Moses had said to him, and fought with Amalek: and Moses, Aaron, and Hur went up to the top of the hill. And it came to pass, when Moses held up his hand, that Israel prevailed: and when he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed. But Moses’ hands were heavy; and they took a stone, and put it under him, and he sat thereon; and Aaron and Hur stayed up his hands, the one on the one side, and the other on the other side; and his hands were steady until the going down of the sun. And Joshua discomfited Amalek and his people with the edge of the sword.
Moses didn’t go alone. All three men had history with Moses and Moses knew he could trust them because they were people God had placed in his life. When we become weak, we must be thankful for those who will be by our side, intercede on our behalf and pray for us, and stand in the gap for us. Think about those special people who will hold us up when we think we can’t go on. You don’t worry about who it is or if they are going to be there because they have proven it time and time again. God will give you what you need when you need it and that includes people too.
When you are planning a big event or birthday party, you know exactly what tasks to assign to certain people because that is what they are good at, that is their gift or talent. When you need to go to the doctor you know who to call for that too. We all have something to offer the question is are you willing to use what God has given you to help others and God get the glory. Are you the person they always call to bake the cake or do the decorations? They always call you when going through a crisis? Don’t complain, but look at it like this, they know you will have their back no matter what. Their car breaks down, two things are going to happen they are going to call the person who will pick them up it doesn’t matter what time it is and they will call their mechanic. These two people they can count on in their time of trouble. Who can you count on?
Thank you God for the people you put in our lives. Their purpose may not always be revealed immediately but we trust you Lord. God bless their gifts and talents and may their purpose be fulfilled where ever you send them and you get all the glory. And as our knowledge of you God increases may our relationship with each other grows as well. God thank you for those who are so selfless in their giving in the name of Jesus, we know that our help comes from you and that you give us others to help us, so we can see you Lord, in them, and we thank you for it, we give you all the glory, honor, and praise in Jesus name Amen.
