When we want to accomplish something big, it takes a team. One person can only do what one person can get done.
But when a group of people join energy and brainpower to tackle a goal together, unexplainable synergy happens and their efforts are multiplied. Success rolls in when a team of people are engaged, committed to working together and helping each other achieve a goal.
And when God’s involved – there is a supernatural factor that is truly astounding to witness. Projects turn out much better than planned. Blessings pile up. We see our faith growing as, together, we experience the power of God in our lives.
Has this happened to you?
I’ve experienced this many times and its exciting every time it happens.
As a result, I love reading the historical account of Nehemiah leading the Israelites in rebuilding the wall around Jerusalem. The Jews were being attacked regularly by their enemies who didn’t want them to complete the wall. They were very discouraged.
Nehemiah refused to stop building. He knew that he had been sent back to Jerusalem to lead this project so he couldn’t stop. He organized the men into teams – half of them did the work while the other half watched the worker’s backs with spears, shields, bows and armor. They protected their brothers with everything they had.
protecting each other,
they accomplished the goal together.
They could not have done it without each other.
Our Spiritual family is like this. We need each other. Each one of us needs to use our spiritual gifts in order to build each other up and fulfill our purpose of reaching others for Christ.
We watch each other’s backs – loving and forgiving each other in supernatural ways.
while our Spiritual family supports us and cheers us on.
We can do this, because He first loved us…
and He has our backs.
Thank you, Abba Father.
