DAY 13: PRAYER & DIRECTIVE
Good morning YE🙋🏽
As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.” (Proverbs 27:17)
A strong comparison would be just as we visit the doctor to keep us accountable for our physical health, we need others in our lives that will keep us accountable for our spiritual lives.and for the call on this great mandate in GBR/GFFJ.
Accountability. Actually, accountability is a tool that keeps us sharp. Proverbs 27:17. It reads, “As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.”
Being accountable is asking someone you trust to come alongside you in an area you need to grow in.
We need each other in GBR/GFFJ to look out for each other and cover each other on a global capacity🙏🏼📖.
Hebrews 3:13. It reads, “But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called Today, so that none of you may be hardened by sin’s deceitfulness.” There are some really cool accountability principles in this piece of scripture.
The first is the word ‘encourage’. When we look at it in the Greek context (parakaleō) one of the definitions of that word is ‘to encourage and strengthen’. That’s one beautiful result of accountability. We are encouraged and strengthened. The other part that jumped out at me was the phrase that says ‘as long as it is called Today…” When we’re in the thick of it, when our defenses are down and we are weak, we are to call upon those that hold us.
Let us pray.
Our heavenly Father today we call on your name through your Son Jesus Christ of Nazereth🙏🏼Grant us the understanding of your word today to be one , even in John 17 you pray for unity Jesus and today we pray for this Global mandate Lord that we will be one and that you command your blessings on all our work.that you have mandated your Son Convenor to do🙏🏼📖🍷🍞
Guide us Holy Spirit so we will never forget that we need each other in all we do🙏🏼🙏🏼Amen
