Knitted Hearts (Part 1)

“As soon as he had finished speaking to Saul, the soul of Jonathan was knit to the soul of David, and Jonathan loved him as his own soul.”
1 Samuel 18:1, ESV.

I love the story of David and Jonathan. As we see in our opening verse, God sometimes knits hearts together, like He did with them, and He puts people in our path because He knows we’ll need them. Godly friendships are a wonderful force to be reckoned with. He uses our friendships as vessels, to encourage and strengthen one another. Jonathan loved David, believed in him, and sought God’s best for him. Jonathan’s friendship was what David needed to grow into the king and leader he was to become.

Friendships are vital in our walk with Christ because, in them, we are sharpened and are held accountable by one another. It’s not about your win in this race; it’s about a corporate win that makes this journey worthwhile. In Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 it says: “Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: if either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up.”

Truth: Never underestimate the power of two hearts knit together for God’s purpose.

Point to Ponder: If you desire this type of friendship, are you leading by example?

Pray with me: Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for the gift of friendships. Lord, please surround me with strong friendships that will add value to my life, and I pray I can do the same for them. Thank You Lord, because You have heard my prayer and You are already working behind the scenes. In Jesus name I pray, Amen!

(Read Proverbs 27:17)
