And the whole city was filled with confusion: and having caught Gaius and Aristarchus, men of Macedonia, Paul's companions in travel, they rushed with one accord into the theatre. (Acts 19:29)
Paul didn’t travel alone; he had companions that were called and anointed to accompany him and help him in his apostolic ministry.
As you follow God’s direction for your life, He will send people across your path to help you succeed in your God-designed assignment.
God will probably call you to help someone else fulfill their calling; then He calls others to help you fulfill yours.
As you prepare to step into doing something God has birthed in your heart, be sure to spend time praying for those God has called to help and support you.
Ecclesiastes 4 tells us that two are better than one because companionship and community are integral to how He grows His church. Leaders may be called to begin something on their own, but the purpose of God will not grow without partners connected to it.
Everyone who helps you won’t remain with you forever, and not everyone who says they want to assist you actually desires to do so. It's essential to listen to the Holy Spirit about who He will send to support you in the calling of God on your life. Don't be desperate; be deliberate. Seek those who have the same faith and heart that you do and who will push forward with you in the things of God.
Practical Application – Spend time praying for those that God is sending to help you fulfill the calling of God on your life. Ask God to open your eyes to opportunities and wisdom in choosing friends that will push you forward in following God.
Acts 15:25; 2 Corinthians 1:1
