“As for Titus, he is my partner and fellow worker among you..” – 2 Corinthians 8:23 (NIV).
The Bible has many beautiful partnerships which were used mightily to further the Lord’s work. There is the partnership of David and Jonathan which sustained David when Jonathan’s father, King Saul, was pursuing him (1 Samuel 18). The partnerships of Apostle Paul and Timothy was a fatherly – mentor relationship that blessed both (1 Timothy).
Another yet great partnerships was of Moses and his elder brother Aaron. Upon receiving the commission to liberate the children of Israel Moses linked up with his elder brother Aaron who was to be his right hand man throughout (Exodus). It was not always smooth. There were uncomfortable moments as when Aaron and Moses’s sister Miriam “began to talk against his back” (Numbers 12: 1-2).
A particularly inspiring moment in this relationship was when Aaron together with Hur, held up Moses’s arms in a battle against the Amelekites enabling him to pray and prevail. “Aaron and Hur held up his hands up- one on one side one on the other- so that his hands remained steady till sunset “ (Exodus 17:-12).
What do we learn from here? It pays to have a partner particularly someone who can lift you up when weak.
Prayer for today: Lord Father God of Abraham, today I pray in the mighty name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth that you bring into my life a partner to grow in faith and serve you more!
