1 Samuel 30:6 (NKJV): Now David was greatly distressed, for the people spoke of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and daughters. But David strengthen himself in the Lord his God.
Isaiah 40:28-31 (NKJV): Have you not known? Have you not heard? The everlasting God, the LORD, The Creator of the ends of the earth, neither faints nor is weary. His understanding is unsearchable. He gives power to the weak, and to those who have no might. He increases strength. Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall. But those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength. They shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.
When the spirits of doubt, discouragement, fear, anxiety, unbelief, and worry try to attack your mind, strengthen (encourage ) yourself in the Lord. Place your focus back on God and take God at His Word. Confess, agree with, and rest in God’s Word. Praise and thank God for coming through for you. You can trust God. God Got You. Fear Not. God will never leave you or forsake you. This too shall pass.
Always remember, God Loves You. God woke you up this morning therefore you have Purpose. Nothing is bigger than the only true and living God. God is in control at ALL times, in every season of your life, no matter how dark it may seem, or how bad you may feel. This trial is for a season, reason, and God has a purpose for it. So cast your cares on God because God cares for you. Instead of worrying, pray about it. God has a plan for your life of good and not evil to give you a hope and a future.
Think of these things: whatsoever things are true, honest, just, pure, lovely, of a good report; virtuous, and praiseworthy, meditate on these things. This is not the end. And remember to acknowledge God in all your ways and allow God to direct your footsteps, motives, thoughts, and actions. Fear Not. Trust God. God will give you the strength that you need to get through this. Obey God. Follow God’s leading. God—Will—See—You—Through—This! God—Got—You!
Be Encouraged Child of God!
