MONDAY’S WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT
ENCOURAGE ONE ANOTHER IN THE LORD
“BE AND ENCOURAGER”
As we begin a brand new week, walking out our purpose in this life, let us learn how to use our prayer life to ENCOURAGE one another. “We are truly our brothers and sisters keeper; therefore, we should be about God’s business in helping one another to move forward in this life as we all grow in His grace being an ENCOURAGER!
Listen to what Paul tells us concerning this matter, he says, “Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. (Philippians 2:4 ESV). As we read this, let us understand that we as believers should not be completely absorbed in his or her own affairs, but should also be interested in others, nothing their good points and qualities. A sure cure for selfish ambition is appreciative recognition of others’ good qualities and their walk with the Lord. It is easy to get caught up in competition, aggressive acquiring and vying for our own rights and needs. But compared to knowing Christ, those interests seem shallow. We need Christ’s attitude of self-sacrifice to look beyond ourselves to the needs of others.
LET US PRAY: Eternal God, our Heavenly Father, we begin a brand new week in your presents seeking your blessings over our Nation, our leaders, our families, our friends and all those that you have brought forth into our lives as a blessings to our souls and the work we do. We move forward this day and this week thanking you Heavenly Father for the abundance of your love and prosperity that is flowing into our lives to meet the needs of all our brothers and sisters. Let not our own selfish ambitions hinder us from reaching out to help others that are in need. Help us to shift our focus and our thinking from our worldly needs to the great abundance of all spiritual truths. Let our prayer life be the focal point of lifting each other up in such a way that you may clean us up and use each one of us for the building of your Kingdom and the eternal salvation of all your children. In Jesus name, we pray, Amen! Now click on this video clip and listen for the voice of God speak to you.
