Help Others along the Way

May 03, 2021

Today’s Scripture

Psalm 72:11–12, NIV
May all kings bow down to him and all nations serve him. For he will deliver the needy who cry out, the afflicted who have no one to help.

Today’s Word

In Psalm 72, King Solomon asked God to make him well known, that his fame would spread throughout the land, that the wealth and honor of other nations would be brought to him, and that kings would bow down before him. You would think God would rebuke Solomon and tell him he was greedy and prideful, but He did exactly what he asked for. God answered that bold prayer because Solomon pledged to use his influence and wealth to lift the fallen, restore the broken, and help the hurting.

God has no problem giving you influence, honor, wealth, and even fame, as long as your dream, in some way, is connected to helping others, to making this world a better place. Whatever field you’re in—medicine, sales, construction, accounting, teaching—I dare you to pray, “God, make me famous in my field. Let me shine. Give me influence.” There’s no limit to what God will do for you if you use what He’s given you to help others.

Prayer for Today

Father, thank You that You want me to lift the fallen, to restore the broken, and to help the hurting. I want in every way possible to advance Your kingdom and bring glory to Your Name. I ask You to give me influence and make me famous in my field. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
