For many people the word “help me” may be lost within their vocabulary, believing that they are self-sufficient, and is that this faith in ourselves deprives us of one of the most beautiful jewels a Christian can possess: “Humility”. Humility is so beautiful that the Scriptures say: “God looks at the humble up close and the proud up at a distance”. In the flock of the Lord there is no room for the words “I can alone”, we are a body and we shelter one another in the love of the Lord to be able to endure trials and afflictions.
Maybe the isolation is ending with many people of the body of Christ, they prefer to go through the storm alone saying that God is the only one who is by their side, but it is not that so dear brother, it is true that God is our side when we are in trials, but it is also very true that we need our brothers in Christ to be able to endure us. Let’s go a little bit at the beginning, in the book of Genesis, when God created man, the Bible says:
And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.
Look at something, at that time Adam had God and had a hundred percent communion with God, however, God says: “It is not good for man to be alone”. And it is that beloved brothers, when God speaks of His church, He speaks of a body, where they build one another and we can not isolate ourselves from everyone and believe that we can alone.
A great example of humility is the apostle Paul, he wrote to the Romans:
30 Now I beseech you, brethren, for the Lord Jesus Christ’s sake, and for the love of the Spirit, that ye strive together with me in your prayers to God for me;
31 That I may be delivered from them that do not believe in Judaea; and that my service which I have for Jerusalem may be accepted of the saints;
32 That I may come unto you with joy by the will of God, and may with you be refreshed.
The apostle did not look at the Romans as very small people to ask them for prayer, nor he did put himself above them, much less isolate himself as to think that he was self-sufficient before all his problems. We must have that same attitude, knowing that God has put brothers in Christ at our side so that they can be with us at any moment of life, and of course, He has left us to His Holy Spirit so that we can overcome any adversity.
