While I take a break from the live morning broadcasts I’ve done for the past 14 months, I will still leave some written encouragement for each day. This week’s focus will be on being encouraged.
“You hear, O LORD, the desire of the afflicted; you encourage them, and you listen to their cry.”
Psalm 10:17 (NIV)
This week we begin a two week focus on being encouraged for the purpose of encouraging one another. The distractions of this world are more than enough to bring discouragement to anyone, so it is important that we keep our eyes focused on the power of God to encourage us so that we can encourage others.
Pray that you, and the people around you, would be encouraged by a God that listens to your cries. Pray for the courage to cry out to God when you are in distress. Pray that God’s presence in you would make you a better listener to those who cry out.
Pray for discernment and wisdom to see beyond and through the divisiveness of this world so that you would love others as God loves both you and them.
