TOPIC: Purpose and Teamwork
"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 is not good for you to be alone in your life, work or ministry for many reasons. One of those reasons is your God-imposed limitations. Your purpose and gifts are limited by God so that you must learn to rely on other people in their purpose to do what you cannot do by design. This requires that you know your purpose and gifts as well as those of others. Are you familiar and comfortable with your own strengths and limitations? Do you try to do and be it all, or have you learned to rely on others? Who are your indispensable teammates who complement who you are and what you do?
Lord I don't always like to rely on others, but I desperately need them to fill in the gaps created by my limitations. And this is Your idea, for You are glorified when teams walk and work together. Open my eyes to this need and show me my teammates; then give me and them grace to function as one.
