Therefore encourage one another with these words.
When friends and family are having a rough day encourage them with the Word of our heavenly Father, and the messages, prayers, and reflections of His servants.
The parables, proverbs, psalms, letters, prayers, chronicles, and examples that are shared in the “good book” that we call the Bible, always have the power to help in any situation. When you may be at a loss for words, the Bible isn’t.
Then remember to do the same, open and read it, when you experience set backs, fearful moments, stressful times, and ignorant people. And if you don’t have access to a paper or electronic version, turn on some spiritual music and listen to the uplifting lyrics. Sing and dance your way out of that fog, funk, or pit. Sing and dance your way into a conversation with God.
Whether you use the Bible or a song, be willing to open yourself up to God, so that you can have discernment, clarity, and perfect understanding. When the enemy tries to lure you into a trap, grab one of these tools and get to work—rebuking the enemy as you praise God! Encourage others to do the same.
Father, You planted the seeds, You gave us the ideas, You provided us with the tools, and I thank You. When life gets dark and dreary, when times get so tough they seem too hard to bear, the answer to all of our issues are within You, and outlined within Your Word.
Father, I don’t know why we search for answers elsewhere, why it is so difficult for us to rely upon Your guidance and wisdom; but I thank You for Your patience as we take the long route to eventually get where You pointed us initially. I love, value, and appreciate You. May my daily walk glorify You and discourage the enemy.
Love you all,
