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.”

Now it is your turn!

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!

Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking
be put away from you, with all malice.
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.

“Take heed that you do not despise one of these
little ones, for I say to you that in heaven their angels
always see the face of My Father who is in Heaven.”
Matthew 18:10

In the eyes of God, you are precious. His love for you is unconditional and everlasting. Learn to celebrate every gift that God has given you. You are blessed, and He is watching over you. Let the joy of the Lord fill your heart with love and laughter.

Last week our son was very sick, and we ended up taking him to the ER. Where we found out that he was in Diabetic Ketoacidosis. His pancreas had quit working and the sugar in his body just kept building up, overwhelming his system. They immediately put him on two IV’s one with insulin and the other with fluid as well as many monitors. Shocked and overwhelmed, we never saw it coming. The doctors told us that there wasn’t anything we could have done to prevent this. They say it is genetic, though there isn’t anyone on either side of our family that has type 1 diabetes.

We were in the hospital for 4 days getting his glucose stable and learning about Type 1 Diabetes. Its a steep learning curve, we are still learning! Through it all I prayed constantly and I kept reminding myself that God loves my son even more than I do. That God see’s my son and what is happening and that even though this awful thing has happened, God can make something beautiful out of this.

What ever trial you are going through, I pray that you remember that God loves you, and that God is watching over you.

Now it is your turn!

Since you were precious in My sight,
you have been honored, and I have loved you.
Isaiah 43:4

Because God created you in His image, you are precious to Him. God created you for His glory. He wants the world to see some of His majesty and goodness through you, and He wants to crown you with His own splendor. He has not promised to keep you out of the wilderness or away from the desert, but if you belong to Him, He does promise to sustain you and renew your life when times are difficult. You can always count on God!

The Lord is near to all who call upon Him,
to all who call upon Him in truth.
Psalm 145:18

Bible verses that you memorize early in life are like seeds planted in the ground. Every time you read your Bible and pray, spiritual water helps you grow and develop into the person God intends you to be. Let the daily habit of coming to God in prayer be one of the first things you do. You will be blessed, and your Heavenly Father will be glorified.

Now may the Lord direct your hearts into
the love of God and into the patience of Christ
2 Thessalonians 3:5

Directing your heart into the love of God will only happen when the Lord becomes your priority and you choose to spend time with Him daily. The patience of Christ is part of growing closer to Him moment by moment. I don’t know about you, but I have faced times when my patience has been thin and I’ve needed an extra dose. Let the love of Jesus fill your heart as you walk closely with Him.

Now it is your turn!

Mark 13:31

Your life will change when you accept that Jesus has all the answers. The Word of God is your pathway to happiness, peace, and contentment.

His Encouragement: Filled with love

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.

And we have known and believed the love that God has for us.
God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him.
Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness
in the day of judgement; because as He is, so are we in this world.
There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear
involves torment. But He who fears has not been made perfect in love.
We love Him because He first loved us.
1 John 4:16-19

You were created with the love of God in your heart. It is a gift that He gives everyone. Let the love you have been given shine brightly for others to see. When you let the light of God’s love flow to those around you, He will bless you and give you the confidence to live each day for His glory.

Now it is your turn!
