Ever wonder how creepy it would seem or look if a stranger walks up to you, wanting to help you?
Let me guess; no stranger in the world can do that right.
We don’t need help. We are so accustomed to keeping the hurtful part of our lives private because we feel it’s unfixable or because we feel nobody is supposed to see that part of me. Thus, we run to various places for help, close friends who we aren’t even sure can help us, magicians, herbalists and at the end, we seek God.
Majorly the truth is only God can fix us, only God can actually help us (Psalm 121:1)
This was what the writer of Godfriended me realized when he wrote this amazing movie. Touching lives and helping others. Of course God cannot come down from heaven (he already did through Jesus). But you see, we are all Gods representatives on earth and should always help each other , like he said in 2 peter ; let brotherly love continue. Love makes you help others.
Just like Miles in the movie that was so headstrong ,He believed he had faced so many bad situations in his life, he lost his mum at a young age, he didn’t have a good job. his father was a reverend in the church(which he hated) and his sister a lesbian, Just imagine, how screwed someone’s life could be. In a nutshell(he was an atheist). But God choose him( Why would God choose an atheist, God only sees the good in people) because he knew how painful it was to hurt and so Knew how To Help people. You See,there are millions of people with problems, but the thing about God is this, if you don’t help someone, God will choose someone else. Your situation or story doesn’t even have to be perfect,just love.
So, An account on facebook claiming to be God sent him a friend request and names of people who needed help. At first, miles was reluctant, he refused, but in the end he agreed(about 3 episodes) . God brought his crew members, Rakesh(his best friend) (the super hacker) and Cara (beautiful amazing intelligent journalist) who later became his girlfriend. And during the process of helping others, his own life too started fixing up. He forgave and reconciled with his dad,He even began believing in God and going to church, his sister broke up with her girlfriend, his dad found a new wife,his podcast also began gaining traffic and a got a record deal,He didn’t even have to pray. Point is: When you help others, your life is beautified because you are exercising God’s nature in you.
Most people will be like, people won’t pay them back; i get you, we are humans, but why be like the people the bible described, helping others because you think they will help you back, that’s not love.
Even God made the rain and the sun to shine on both believers and unbelievers… Jesus died for all, so God is the one to repay you. What happened to the principle of sowing and reaping, it’s will definitely come back to you, In multiple folds, not just in the way you expect.
So season 2 had kicked off and guess what, God account sent someone else a friend request apart from miles. Her name is joy and she has a lot of baggage (God doesn’t use d perfect people) .she is now part Of The crew, she gets the friend request now, not miles anymore (don’t know why yet). Cara got a new job in Paris, where she figured that the person who sent her a message on facebook 5 years ago to go find her mum in new york, where she met miles, didn’t even know about it. (God already arranged it From the beginning). I await the other episodes to see the unveiling and baring of people’s souls been ripped apart and fixed through God’s ambassadors on earth..
The movie might seem too religious to you (because I know Africans) but trust me, you’d learn a thing or two.
I hope the movie blessed you the way it did to me…
And don’t forget To Help someone today and everyday. (it could be a tip to the doorman, helping an old lady with some loads or helping a kid cross the street). Just be nice to someone.
