Some days are dull and boring. Some days are filled with problems. Some days, the only progress we make is backwards.
Is today is one of those days? Dear friend, Jesus is your ENCOURAGEMENT. Say these words taken from the bible aloud with me now.
“I lift up my eyes to the mountains — where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth. And even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me.”
“The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”
“Be strong and take heart, all you who hope in the Lord. Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.
The Lord says to us, “I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you.”
So friend, “If God is for us, who can be against us? Therefore we do not lose heart. We are being renewed day by day.”
Whenever you feel down or discouraged, go to the bible like we did today. And you will be made strong as you fill your mind with Jesus your Encouragement!
2 Corinthians 4:16
