Someone May Need You To Strengthen Them

There is an old black spiritual that goes…
“Trials dark on every hand and we cannot understand all the ways that God will lead us through that blessed promised land.”
All of us, at times, go through trials on every hand. And when we do, it can rock our faith. It can cause us to have doubts about our faith.
The Christians at Thessalonica were going through some tough times. Paul had heard they were sonhe sent Timothy to encourage them. Paul said, “We sent him to strengthen you, to encourage you in your faith, and to keep you from being shaken by the troubles you were going through. But you know that we are destined for such troubles.”
Paul sent Timothy to strengthen them in their faith. There may be someone that needs you to strengthen. Maybe you need to have coffee with someone or lunch. Or maybe just needs a call or a text. Living the Christian life is not easy and trials can knock a person down. But the Lord wants us to help them when they are dowm.
About two weeks ago, a friend of mine called me. We chatted a little and then he asked, “Well how are YOU doing?”. He was calling to strengthen me. Maybe the Lord wants you to strengthen someome.
