Encouragement brings Hope

All around are people who need to be encouraged. People who don’t know the Lord need to be encouraged that God is real and cares about them and wants them to truly know Him.

Believers in Christ need to be encouraged as well. Those that Stand Firm in their Faith honoring the word of God with their lives, especially need encouragement because they are under attack more consistently. 1 Peter 5:8,9 says: “Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. But resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same experiences of suffering are being accomplished by your brethren who are in the world.“ The devil  attack them the most in order to discourage their work and their walk in Christ.

No matter what our circumstances are, those who know God through His word are encouraged by His word. The Scriptures are there for our example, our instruction and for our training in righteousness. Romans 15:4 tells us: “For whatever was written in earlier times was written for our instruction, so that through perseverance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope.”

Isaiah 40:31   “Yet those who wait for the LORD Will gain new strength; They will mount up with wings like eagles, They will run and not get tired, They will walk and not become weary.”
