His Encouragement: The power of words

Welcome to His Encouragement. I have joined with some blogging friends to bring you a new Bible verse every Thursday, and a little discussion of hope and encouragement. We welcome you to join the conversation by adding your daily verse of encouragement as well.

I pray that these Thursday posts become an encouragement to you and help you end your week strong in God’s love and purpose for you. God bless.

Pleasant words are like a honeycomb,
Sweetness to the soul and health to the bones.
Proverbs 16:24

Our words have the power to lift up or to destroy. Take a moment to think about how you communicate. Do your words encourage others? Do your words nurture, nourish, and inspire your own children?

Whether words are written or spoken, they have the power to break and destroy healthy relationships. Let us accept the challenge presented in Ephesians 4:29 which states, “Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.”

Now it is your turn!

I’ve long heard “You will know them by their fruits.” But have you thought about what fruits you display to others? Are we loving and kind to others? Are we sharing Jesus with each other daily? Let’s strive today, and every day to be more like Jesus and spread love everywhere we go!

My son [daughter], do not forget my law,
But let your heart keep my commands;
For length of days and long life and
peace they will add to you.
Let not mercy and truth forsake you;
Bind them around your neck,
write them on the tablet of your heart,
Proverbs 3:1-3

His Encouragement: The Lord of Heaven

Welcome to His Encouragement. I have joined with some blogging friends to bring you a new Bible verse every Thursday, and a little discussion of hope and encouragement. We welcome you to join the conversation by adding your daily verse of encouragement as well.

I pray that these Thursday posts become an encouragement to you and help you end your week strong in God’s love and purpose for you. God bless.

When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers,
the moon and the stars, which You have ordained,
What is man that You are mindful of him, and
the son of man that You visit him?
Psalms 8:3-4

God is in control of the universe, and because of that I know that I can rest secure. It doesn’t mean that bad things won’t happen, it means that no matter what, I know who holds my future. We may not always see His purpose or his plan. I’m reminded also of Isaiah 55:9 – “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways, My ways, says the Lord.”

His Encouragement: Where are your roots?

Welcome to His Encouragement. I have joined with some blogging friends to bring you a new Bible verse every Thursday, and a little discussion of hope and encouragement. We welcome you to join the conversation by adding your daily verse of encouragement as well.

I pray that these Thursday posts become an encouragement to you and help you end your week strong in God’s love and purpose for you. God bless.

“That Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith;
that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be
able to comprehend with all the saints what is the
width and length and depth and height — to know
the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you
may be filled with the fulness of God.”
Ephesians 3:17-19

If Christ dwells in your heart are you interacting with your neighbor as if Christ is dwelling in your heart? Are you so full of the love of Christ that the love spills out and overflows to everyone who comes in contact with you?

My prayer today is that others will see Christ in me. That I will be so rooted in Christ that His love spills out to everyone I meet.

Now it is your turn!

And be kind to one another, tenderhearted,
forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you.
Ephesians 4:31-32

These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace.
In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer,

I have overcome the world.
John 16:33

God doesn’t promise that our lives will easy. We are told that we will face hardships. In this world of sin, life is fraught with tribulation. But there is a silver lining. Jesus has overcome this world! In Jesus we can find peace. Rest in Him today.
