Encouraging Scripture

Many times we have challenges in our life that we don’t expect. And where can we turn? For me, turning to scripture offers me comfort and encouragement.

Old Testament Verses:

Joshua 1:9: I command you: be strong and steadfast! Do not fear nor be dismayed, for the LORD, your God, is with you wherever you go.

God is with us, always; wherever we go.

Sirach 2:10-11: Consider the generations long past and see: has anyone trusted in the Lord and been disappointed? Has anyone persevered in his fear and been forsaken? has anyone called upon him and been ignored? For the Lord is compassionate and merciful; forgives sins and saves in time of trouble.

God does not disappoint, forsake or ignore us. His compassion and mercy are endless; we can call on Him and He will answer!

Isaiah 51:1: Listen to me, you who pursue justice, who seek the LORD; Look to the rock from which you were hewn, to the quarry from which you were taken;

Who do we come from? GOD! He is our rock, our Father. We are sons and daughters of the most high King. We are princes and princesses. Hold onto that, you come from strength.

 New Testament Verses:

Mark 11:22-24: Jesus said to them in reply, “Have faith in God. Amen, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be lifted up and thrown into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will happen, it shall be done for him. Therefore I tell you, all that you ask for in prayer, believe that you will receive it and it shall be yours.

Ask and He will answer. Maybe not right away, but you will get what you need in His perfect timing.

2 Corinthians 5:17: So whoever is in Christ is a new creation: the old things have passed away; behold, new things have come.

When the crisis, the difficulty has passed, look back and see how you have changed. How can you take what you learned in the hard times and apply them now?

1 Thessalonians 5:9-11: For God did not destine us for wrath, but to gain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us, so that whether we are awake or asleep we may live together with him. Therefore, encourage one another and build one another up, as indeed you do.

I think it is so important to encourage those around us. If you pray for someone, let them know. Send a card, note, text or call. Leave flowers on their doorstep. Reach out, offer support and encourage each other.

Which leads right into the the not lukewarm challenge this week. Encourage someone this week in whatever way is best for you and your family.
