Joyce Meyer 7th December 2020 Daily Devotional Message
Our friendship doesn’t only benefit us, it also benefits those around us. When people come to us with needs or concerns, we may be able to offer some help, or sometimes we may not be able to meet their needs at all. Even when we don’t have what someone really needs, God does, and because we’re His friends (see John 15:15), we can say to people, “I don’t have what you need, but I know Someone Who does. I’ll ask my Friend! I will talk to God for you.”
We know that God has the power to intervene in people’s circumstances, to help their children stop using drugs, to bring financial breakthroughs, to work medical miracles or to reconcile marriages. The more intimately we know God, the more confident we are in His willingness and ability to help people. When they come to us, we can go to Him and know He’ll come through with the help they need. We can actually ask God to do us a favor and help someone we love, even when we know that they don’t deserve it. When we pray with compassion out of a heart of love, He hears and answers.
I want to encourage you to remember this: God loves you, and He loves the sound of your voice. Go to Him often, not only for your needs, but also for the needs of others.
Prayer Starter: Father, thank You for being willing to help, both in my life and in the lives of people I love. Help me remember to come to You with their needs and mine, and to trust You to come through. In Jesus’ name, amen.
