Acts 20:35

I have shewed you all things, how that so labouring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive.


We see it more often nowadays. A friend starts to get quiet and their attitude changes. Their  sense of humor seems to have flown away. They start to become reclusive. That person may be struggling spiritually, or just going through a rough time. They most likely need you.


Sometimes it can seem silly or shameful for someone who is going through a rough time to say anything about it at all. Often times, something completely unawares has happened and a person will change right in front of you. All you may see is the change, not the circumstance that caused the change. Scripture says we should support the weak. That word in the Greek means to help and come alongside the weak.


The Greek word, paraclete - used for the term, “Holy Spirit” throughout the New Testament - means, “One who comes alongside and supports.” When you see someone who is changing or becoming reclusive, they may need someone who is strong in the faith to come alongside them and stand with them through their tough time. They may not want you to do it and maybe prayer is what is needed. But the fact remains, we must support each other through times of struggle; during spiritually dry valleys especially.


Look out for your fellow followers of Christ. Perhaps you are going through a tough season of struggle, you never have to be ashamed to reach out to someone in the faith. We should all be here for each other in love, to come alongside one another as does the Holy Spirit in our personal times of need.


Walk alongside your brethren and sisters in Christ. You don’t have to struggle to hold on. Come into His rest. Let Him come alongside you.

She said, "Brother Branham, I tell you." Said, "I still love the Lord Jesus." But said, "I—I find it so hard to serve Him." Now, that is what I find around most Christian lives. Most, I hate to say it that way, but it's true. The most people that can profess Christianity, they seem to have such a hard struggling time to hold on. I believe it's because of a lack of correct teaching of—of the Bible. There's no such a thing as holding on. He done the holding on. The whole Christian principle is based upon rest. "Come unto Me all ye that labor and heavy laden. I will give you rest." Don't have to worry and struggle. You're just resting; that's all. Given rest, you enter in peace, that the whole thing's finished. "Them who He has called, He has justified. Those who He has justified, He has already glorified," Scripture quoting.
