Encouragement in the word -1

1.Verse:                         Colossians 3:2

And set your minds and keep them set on what is above (the higher things), not on the things that are on the earth.

- The focus of our lives is very important.
- Our desires and longings must be for greater things.
- We pursue what our hearts long for.
- This calls for a decision – what will our focus be?

PRAYER: Dear Lord, Help me to be heavenly minded and not consumed by earthly things. Help me to see things from Your perspective. Amen.

 2. Verse:                        John 15:16

 You didn’t choose me! I chose you! I appointed you to go and produce fruit.

- God has chosen each one of us.
- God has a purpose and a plan for your life.
- The plan is that you should be fruitful and productive.
- With God in our lives this is a possibility!

CHALLENGE: Remember, God has chosen you!

 3. Verse:                         Ephesians 5:17

 Don’t act thoughtlessly, but try to find out and do whatever the Lord wants you to.

- God wants us to live in dependence on Him.
- Many people live reactive lives.
- They react to circumstances and situations.
- God is calling us to live at a different level!

PRAYER: Dear Lord, I pray that You will help me today, not to react to the things I will face, but rather to depend on You and do what You would have me do! Amen.

 4. Verse:                      Acts 13:22

I have found David a man after My own heart; he will do everything I want him to do.

- God is looking for those who will obey Him.
- David was a man who obeyed God.
- As a result God said he was a man after His own heart.
- It pleases God when we do what He tells us to do. 

CHALLENGE: Do not hesitate – DO what God tells you to do!

 5. Verse:                      Psalm 144:1

The Lord is MY immovable Rock. He gives ME strength!

- Most things in life are not SURE things!
- That is why we need a sure foundation.
- If we have a good foundation we will be strong.
- Make God your foundation and be strong!

DECLARATION: God is my rock – I will not be moved and HE will strengthen me!

 6.Verse:                       Psalm 34:1

I will bless the Lord at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth.

- Your attitude determines your altitude!
- We should bless the Lord at all times and on all occasions.
- It may not always feel like the right thing to do.
- But it will be rewarded!

CHALLENGE: Take a moment and praise the Lord. Tell Him how you trust Him and praise His name!
