It is important that we connect with others who can inspire, encourage, and pull you up by your bootstraps. These individuals can speak life into a dead situation. They can help you speak life to a sick child or to an empty bank account. When you are connected to the right people they can help you jumpstart your purpose and plan for your future.
I saw this post on Facebook” Surround yourself with only people who are going to lift you higher”. When you surround yourself with others who are willing to lift you up they in return not only builds you up, but they build themselves up to. The bible tells us that “two are better than one” because they have a good return for their labor. If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. Also if two lie down together, they will keep warm”. (Ecclesiastes 4:9-11 NIV)
As I look at the story of Mary and Elizabeth in the bible in Luke 1:39-45, Mary visits Elizabeth. They were cousins and both women were pregnant both physically and spiritually. They both were carrying male children who had greater purpose. Elizabeth was pregnant with John the Baptist and Mary was pregnant with Jesus our Savior. When Mary greeted Elizabeth, the baby leaped in her womb. Could it be when she greeted Elizabeth that brought life to her womb that cause the baby to leap?
Mary spoken these words “Blessed are you among women and blessed is the fruit of your womb. After the baby leaped in Elizabeth’s womb”. Mary further said” blessed is she who believed that there would be a fulfillment of what was spoken to her by the Lord”. The words you speak can bring life to someone and cause someone to leap into their God’s given purpose. Your words alone can cause blessing in their lives.
1. Are you connected to the right people in your life”?
2. Are they speaking positive words into your life?
3. Are you speaking positive words into their lives?
Let us pray,
Heavenly Father we ask that you lead us to the right people who can spoke life into our lives. Help us to connect with others that will build us up. Help us to be a blessing as well. Your word says it is better to give than to receive. Help us to speak positive words into someone’s life. Amen
