It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God. I want you to know God loves and adores you. I want you to know I appreciate you. I want you to know your efforts have not been overlooked. I want you to know you really do make a difference. I want you to know I thank God for you. So often in life, we go each and every day without ever hearing words of encouragement or kindness. We give so much of ourselves to people without ever receiving a simple ‘thank you.’ There are times when you find yourself so discouraged with life and how it has treated you. You want to throw in the towel. You want to give in. It is during these times when you need to hear how valuable you are to the body of Christ. Please forgive me for ever overlooking your value.
Today, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you. My friend, how does it make you feel to know I appreciate what you do for the body of Christ? How does it make you feel when you think about your value? The joy you feel within is the same joy your neighbor can experience if you make it a point to encourage someone else. We all need to hear and know we are appreciated. Tell the people around you how blessed you are to have them. Tell your family members how great it is to be with them. Do you realize tomorrow is not a guarantee? All we have is right now. Do not put off for tomorrow what you can do and say to someone today. Open Your Mouth And Encourage Someone! The Bible declares in Proverbs 18:21 - Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.
My brother, my sister, do not allow another day to go by without encouraging someone. Understand this, if you sow encouragement today, during the times when you need it you can expect to reap it. Beloved, we never know what the people around us are enduring. So often we think we know it but we really do not. We only know what they allow us to know. Some people have suicidal thoughts run through their minds. Some people battle low self-esteem. Some people walk the floors at night worrying about everything. Open Your Mouth And Encourage Someone! The Bible declares in Galatians 6:7 - Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. Prayer for Today: Father, thank You for always being there for me. Lord help me encourage those around me each and every day. In the name of Jesus … Amen!
Scripture Reading for Today: Philippians 4:7
