Much Needed Encouragement


Everyone needs encouragement!

Are you looking for the positives in your negative situations today?

John 16:31-33 (NKJV) 31Jesus answered them, “Do you now believe? 32 Indeed the hour is coming, yes, has now come, that you will be scattered, each to his own, and will leave Me alone. And yet I am not alone, because the Father is with Me. 33 These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”

Romans 8:31-32 (NKJV) What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? 

1 Samuel 30:6 (NKJV) 6 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 his daughters. But David strengthened himself in the Lord his God.

         Years ago I had a lady from our church that fell down a flight of stairs onto a concrete floor. She was around 92 years of age. Someone called me and I arrived just before the EMT medics. A neighbor was with her. She was conscious but in a great deal of pain. She had a cut and contusion on her head. It turns out that her shoulder was broken and she was bruised all over. I knelt down beside her and spoke softly and spoke a word of prayer over her. She turned and looked at me and said… I’ll share with you in the sermon this week what she said. I speak the phrase to myself often as a word of honesty and encouragement.

See you in worship this week.
