Daily Devotional – 5/11/18 “Two is better than one!”

I don’t care how independent you think you are, you cannot walk this journey of life alone and survive. Before you ‘happily single’ folk come for me, let me explain. The bible says in Ecclesiastes 4:9-10, “Two are better than one because they have a good return for their labor. For if either of them falls, the one will lift up his companion. But woe to the one who falls when there is not another to lift him up.” Please understand something, I am not talking about having a husband or wife but I am speaking of life in general. Beloved look, with so many things going on, you need somebody you can lean and depend on. Yea, I know you can lean and depend on God but I am speaking physically because no matter how heavy you are spiritually, you need somebody when your flesh fails. With suicides on the rise, murders plaguing our land, relationships not surviving, depression, hurt and pain; you need somebody you can depend on. With strongholds and generational curses destroying families, demonic spirits smothering the sanctity of worship places and mental illness shutting the mouths of strong Godly people; you need somebody.

No longer can you act like you got it together when the enemy has set up in your house and he’s destroying your life. No longer can you keep quiet about your woes because if it hadn’t been for your children, some of you would have already taken your life. Baby, there are some folk who get up every morning, dressed up and messed up. There are some folk in boardrooms, right now, functional addicts. There are some teachers who are secretly fighting the foreclosure of their home. There are some pastors who are contemplating bankruptcy but they preach real well. There are some mothers who want to give up and some fathers who want to give in. There are some sisters sleeping around just to feed their children and some brothers who can’t even afford a haircut, after working 60 hours last week. Ma’am/sir, you need somebody even if it’s just to talk. You need somebody, if it’s only to get a hot meal, this week. You need somebody, if only it is to hold the phone while you cry. You need somebody who will come and get you when your car stops on the expressway at midnight. You need somebody who will tell you when you’re right and wrong. You need somebody who will support you. You need somebody to pray you off the ledge. You need somebody. Why? Because two is better than one. Don’t allow your strong will to be the reason you suffer alone.

  1. Your blog is so true and powerful I often think about the saying I can do bad all by myself and you hear this quite often from people who have been broken or have trust issues but when you have that outlet to be able to talk to one good friend it is a blessing Jesus first than a true compaign or co worker or spouse or a family member is good to have but our trust must remain in his word and the scripture you used is a prime excample enjoyed reading your blog as always and I passed your words of wisdom on to others 🤗
