The Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.” ~Genesis 2:18
It’s best not to battle evil alone. Fight with others. Choose prayerful Christians who have your back. Above all else, there’s no way for us to effectively fight without surrendering to Jesus Christ.
God said, “It’s not good for the man to be alone.”. So, the Lord created animals. No animal was suitable, so God created Woman. Man and Woman joined in the sacred act, and children were born.
It’s not good to be alone, so God gave us each other. He gave us family. He gave us community.
Thousands of years later, Christ ate his last supper. His parting words were “everyone will know that you are My disciples, if you love one another.” It’s not good to be alone. God’s promise is that, with one another - believers are STRONGER.
Our collective prayers are answered FASTER.
Together, we are MORE DANGEROUS to the enemy – who was most certainly there at that ancient moment and now seeks to subvert, trick and destroy. Let that sink in: an enemy with thousands of years to prepare.
Once, I strengthened spiritual ties with my wife. Our prayers force multiplied, and good things pervaded our home.
Then, we fought - said stupid things. So, Anger called his demons over for a party and trashed my home. They wouldn’t leave. I had a friend in Christ, who I could seek counsel. We prayed. He took me to church. We fell into groups that showed us healing and patience. I found people whose strategies that I could copy.
I could not have done it alone. Thank you, my wife. Thank you my brothers and sisters. You showed me how my life gets saved!
