Whatever the need, irrespective of the circumstances, He wants you to be self-sufficient, so much so that you require no aid or support. The reason for being self-sufficient in all things is for you to abound in good works. That immediately brings something to mind: you really don’t live for yourself, but for other people.
Be there for someone by a phone call. Be there by a helping hand. Be there with an encouraging word. Be there on social media to say hello or encourage others. Be there.
*And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work (2 Corinthians 9:8).*
A wise man, Rev. B.K Arthur Snr. once told me a story about life. He said there are 3 major events in a man’s (human beings) life; when he is born, when he marries and when he dies. Of all these, it’s only one the man sees. And like all the other major events, it’s others that suffer in the process most. So if your life doesn’t become of benefit to someone or society, you are of all men most useless.
God will make happen for you what you make happen for others. If you bless people, you’ll always be lifted. This is because your promotion is in promoting others. You’re a greater success as you help others to succeed.
There are many people in distress for example, whose healing will be perfected and their needs met, if only they’d, for a moment, look away from their own pains and needs and be there for others.
So go! Be there for someone today, for that is the beauty of life. Let someone smile today. Keep giving, and keep helping those around you to stand strong. When you get a bit concerned about helping others, God will take care of your own desires.
And the world will be a better place.
