I Have God, Do I Need Friends?

by - February 11, 2021

The word Friend is one word that has been abused a lot of the time, and this is because some have had experiences from friends that even an enemy wouldn't have done.

It's quite unfortunate that as a result of theses experiences with these so-called friends, some have vowed never to allow anyone into their space again.

The challenge with building walls to keep others out of your life is that, you as a person gets trapped within those walls too. No is allowed to come in, but you are not going out too.

In a bid to justify the fact that you have built those walls, you might start claiming that your relationship with God is all you need, while this is true, but there are things God will do for us through the relationships that we are in. 

There is a popular saying that If you want to go fastgo aloneIf you want to go fargo together

There is so much good that can come from having the right people in your corner, so much good.

There is only as much that you can hear about or think of as an individual, but having the right people in your circle can take things to yet another greater level for you. 

You might have been doing so well on your own, smashing all your goals, creating systems that makes all your goals achievable, but having the right relationships can take your whole life a step higher, give you perspectives on things you might never see if you were just working on your own.

There is something called looking at something with a fresh eyes, this is one of the benefit great friendships give you, they help you look at things and help you point out to the things you might have missed on your own.

This is one scripture I love so much...

 9.Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. 

10. If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble. 

11. Likewise, two people lying close together can keep each other warm. But how can one be warm alone? 

12. A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken.  Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 NLT

Yes, this scripture is majorly used when talking about the marriage relationship, while marriage relationship takes the oneness game to another level, but what about before you get married? We need friends!

There should be people in your life that you can be vulnerable with and that can be vulnerable with you too.

God never designed man to be alone, while they are times when situations might warrant that you seek the Lord's face on your own or that you do things just by yourself, but these times are only exceptions to the rules. It doesn't happen all of the time.

You need your tribe, we all do.

You are not meant to live in isolation.

As iron sharpens iron, so a friend sharpens a friend. Proverbs 27:17 NLT 

All over scriptures, we saw people having friends.

David had a friend.

Daniel did.

Jesus had his own friends too.

One master card of the enemy to get believer down is make sure they are alone, taking offence with those meant to cover them.

Friends will offend you, but it is in your best interest not to shut everyone out of your life based on that premises.

There are things God does for us by himself, and there are others he makes possible for us through the instrumentation of friends.

You really do need people. You do.

Trust that the Lord will bring great relationships your way.

There is so much Light***
