We all need encouragement.
It helps us carry on throughout the day.
We seek encouragement from out friends and family – don’t always get it but we ask it none the less.
Encouragement From God is What We Need
It does not require much for me to encourage you. I just have to sense the need to do it.
During a conversation the need for encouragement surfaces when a soul appears troubled. Sometimes we don’t have to say anything – just listening shows caring and gives encouragement.
Then there are times we can get an urging from the Holy Spirit to send an encouraging message. I doesn’t have to be long, maybe just saying I was thing of you.
But we can’t always rely on encouragement form people. Sometimes we have to ask. And that should be OK.
Christians should not fear asking for a little help.
But doesn’t the best encouragement come from God?
We ask God for encouragement though prayer. I think much of the Psalms is the psalmist seeking encouragement from the God Most High.
Lord, You are my rock.
Lord, You put my feet on solid ground.
Read Psalms and believe in the power of God.
Jesus has overcome the world.
You can do all thing through the power of Jesus.
Read the Bible for Encouragement.
But we need to read it in faith. The words mean nothing if they are not absorbed in our hearts.
Ask God for wisdom and He will give it freely. But ask believing He will do it.
For me I don’t rely on people for encouragement. To many times it’s been fake.
The only true source of encourage is God – through prayer – through scripture.
Trust God and rely on Him.
Encouragement from God gives you what is necessary at the moment it’s needed.
