Encourage Yourself

Weary?

Feel overtaken or overwhelmed? Discouraged?

Don’t know where to go from here?

There is nothing that gives me more encouragement than reading the comforting words of Scripture. This is usually the very first place I turn to when I feel any kind of way, but especially when I feel my situation, my world or my emotions are starting to spin out of control or when I don’t know my next step.

One of the many beauties of the Word is that you can go back to it time and time again …and again and again … and It never changes. What held true back then still holds true today.

People and situations change, but the promises of God remain true and always will. People and changing situations may disappoint, but standing on the promises of Christ my King is what keeps me grounded.

So, my friend, when you are feeling a certain type of way, whatever it may be, encourage yourself in the Lord.

“And David was greatly distressed… but David encouraged himself in the Lord” (1 Samuel 30:6).
