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 . . . and encouraging others.
“Your love has given me great joy and encouragement, because you, brother, have refreshed the hearts of the saints.”
Philemon 1:7 (NIV)
This week we look at part two of 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 would know the encouragement that comes from being loved. Pray that your love for people would be an encouragement to them. Pray that love would bring joy and refreshment to you and to the people around you.
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.
