There are no coincidences when it comes to the people God has placed and planned to be in our lives. God intimately and intricately plans for all things to work for good.
As a Christian, you are meant to share your faith, telling people about your belief in and relationship with God. But it’s often our selfishness that stops us from being interested in others. We get afraid of failing, looking bad, or what other people think of us. And before we know it we might call ourselves Christians but never have any meaningful conversations with anyone about God, faith and His purpose for our lives. But sharing your faith can be easy — when you know your own purpose, you can help someone else see theirs.
Check out our new Video Devotional to learn how to share your faith, and how God orchestrates relationships for us and often puts us in the lives of others to be a friend that shows them not just God, but their capacity to have a personal relationship and destiny with Him.
O Lord, you have examined my heart and know everything about me. You know when I sit down or stand up. You know my thoughts even when I’m far away. You see me when I travel and when I rest at home. You know everything I do. You know what I am going to say even before I say it, Lord. You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed.
Psalm 139:1-4, 16 NLT
Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves; 4 do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others.
Philippians 2:3-4 NASB
When Jesus came down from the mountainside, large crowds followed him. A man with leprosy came and knelt before him and said, “Lord, if you are willing, you can make me clean.” Jesus reached out his hand and touched the man. “I am willing,” he said. “Be clean!” Immediately he was cleansed of his leprosy.
Matthew 8:1-3 NLT
