POWER OF ENCOURAGEMENT

"Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing." 1 Thessalonians 5:11

 

Today more than ever we All need to be Encouraged there is an enemy out there who wants to rain on your plan and defeat us. He uses his tactics to discourage us like Criticism, Complaining and treating us Cold. We all need to be Encouraged from time to time and we also need to learn to Encourage others.

 

The attack on our Children and Us is real and preparing ourselves to be tough and to get back at others is not the solution – we need to Encourage each other to know WHO they are and how to Stand up!

 

Barnabas -son of Encouragement

Acts 11:21-26

God will use others to encourage us and will use us to encourage others.

Barnabas was known as the "son of encouragement" because he was constantly encouraging those around him. As the apostles worked to spread the good news and grow the church, Barnabas played a large role in encouraging and connecting people. He put his reputation on the line to encourage the apostles to accept Paul after his conversion. He mentored the young John Mark when others didn't want to give him a second chance.

“May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you the same attitude of mind toward each other that Christ Jesus had,” Romans 15:5 NIV

We need to be reminded that Greater is he that is in US than he that is in the world. We need to be the ones who Encourage greatness in others and empower them to achieve it. We need to remind ourselves and others that we can do all things thru Christ. Phil. 4:13

We should always be looking for ways we can bless someone with our words or actions. In turn, we can be thankful when God uses someone to say or do something kind or helpful to encourage our hearts. 

 

There is great power in Encouraging each other. It is one of the most tangible ways to be Jesus to those we come in contact with every day.

 

So purpose in your life today to Encourage others and show them this Love - Your love has given me great joy and encouragement, because you, brother, have refreshed the hearts of the Lord’s People.”    Philemon 1:7        Amen
