Connect the Dots

So in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.  Romans 12:5

“I don’t know. I’ve tried to reboot it, but it keeps shutting down.”

“Oh no, what now?” We had so many pictures and documents on this computer, and we hadn’t been able to backup our folders for a while. Tech support told us our computer had crashed, and it would cost $13000 to retrieve all our documents and pictures. This was not what we wanted to hear, but God was in charge and we put our trust in Him.

Instead, we thanked God the library wasn’t far away and forgot about our crashing computer. Later that week, I was sharing with a close friend what happened. I found out his specialty was computers. “Drop it by and I’ll fix it – no charge.”

Romans reminds us in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. God wants us to connect with others in the kingdom and to encourage and help them. Through these connections, we can complete what He has set before us. The devil will try to place road blocks in front of you to stop you from your mission, but if you trust God and stay in the body of Christ, He will divinely connect you with people to help you get to the next level.

For us, this was no doubt a divine appointment with my friend. My husband and I are blessed and thankful to be connected with wonderful friends in the body.

Are you connected in the body of Christ? Don’t let the hiccups of your journey get you down. Recognize the enemy is trying to delay you. Ask God to send you a divine appointment to get you back on track to your purpose. Ask Him to connect you with friends who will help you in your journey and who you can help in theirs. There are many blessings along the way … even before you get your breakthrough.
