A few months back a friend messaged me and said the Holy Spirit was having her pray that my husband would be surrounded by Godly men.
I was in total agreement with her…this was a need. He needed men that would love unconditionally and with compassion in this season of life.
I was once told by a pastor I needed to stay far away from my now husband because he was wicked…but God kept drawing me near to him.
The Lord has had me love him when he hasn’t been so lovable…with the same love Christ has had for me.
From the outside looking in, from the small town talk, I could see why he would call him wicked…but does that mean we need to have the same spirit Jonah had towards Nineveh?
I’m learning it’s God who decides who is worthy of his grace and redemption…not me.
We are told in the Word that iron sharpens iron.
The Lord has answered…and well you can see the smile on my husband’s face as he is surrounded by these men whose families have become our family.
Here’s the thing…the devil wants to isolate and destroy people. Not to hurt us, but to hurt God who loves us and wants to see the people He loves delivered and restored.
Look around. There are people today spending Christmas Eve alone debating on if they should even live another day or take their life.
Christ came this season for them…to give hope for a future.
Do you see someone in need of a friendship? In need of Christ? Someone who needs to feel God’s love flow from you to them?
Don’t miss the blessing of a friendship that can bring one redemption and restoration.
It could be a spouse, a child’s teacher, a neighbor, a co-worker, a brother or a sister…ask the Holy Spirit who he’d have you befriend this coming season.
Show up…be intentional and spread God’s love.
