We are better together! Many people have the misconception that all they need is God on their side and they can dismiss people. That could not be farther from the truth. God actually draws people to us so that He can work through them to help us accomplish our purpose.

Joshua was assigned to fight the Amalakites. Moses’ job was to hold up his staff. After some time, Moses’ arms became tired. As soon as he put his arms down, the battle turned against Israel. Thank God for his foresight. God had Aaron and Hur with Moses because he needed some help. Aaron and Hur had Moses sit down and they held his arms up for him until the battle was over.

Then Jethro, Moses’ father in law, comes for a visit and sees Moses trying to lead Israel by himself. Jethro gives Moses a plan for how he can delegate some of the responsibilities to others. It lightened Moses’ load.

There are people God has assigned to your life to help you. Be sensitive to those God-sent people because they have the answer to a challenge you will face. They could be in your small group or serving with you. Ask the Holy Spirit to reveal them to you because we really are better together.
