Does anybody have those people that you love being around or talking with? I assume that if you do, then those people are ones who will cheer you on, motivate you, and encourage you. You may not even live in the same state but when you get the chance to call or text, they are able to lift you out of a rut? But you have to remember, God placed them in your life for a reason.
Often, we think that all we need is God but even God said that it is “not good for man to be alone” and created a partner for Adam. James 5:16 states “Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.” While it is necessary to have a close relationship with God, we must also confess to each other, and while it might terrify some, God has placed people close to us for a reason. For whenever two are gathered in his name he is present, but that requires two people, not one.
Each and every person needs others who they can trust and confide in and God will place those people into your life. Even if you live in different states, or on different continents, God will always provide a way for you to see his light. Confess up to God, but then confess out to others.
Do you have someone to confide in?
Do you have someone that can always make you smile and someone you can confide in? How did God introduce them into your life?
“A man of many companions may come to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.” Proverbs 18:24 NIV -- Have companions, but always keep one or two that you can truly put trust in and confide in.
