“Learn to Encourage Yourself in the Lord!
I sense there are many people that are facing persecution, rejection, opposition, and misunderstandings that seem to be surrounding them on every side… Some of the struggles might even be self induced! However, I am here to remind you of this amazing truth: we serve a loving, faithful, and redeeming God!! When immaturity and offense corrupt the faith, hope, and love of people around you, and it seems you have nobody to turn to, it’s not the time to join them, it’s time to ENCOURAGE Yourself in the Lord!
“… but David encouraged himself in the LORD his God“ (1 Samuel 30:6).
David wasn’t perfect, but his heart toward God was! See, the church has people, especially saints, believing that if they fall or have failures God discards them.. Therefore, they judge and sentence the same people that God, in His infinite love, mercy, and wisdom, corrects and vindicates.
I want to remind you to REMEMBER how good God is and all of the things He has already brought you through. If He has done it before, He will do it again!! Encourage yourself in His promises and know that it doesn’t matter who is against you, if God is for you, you’re sealed in victory!! The church has to wake up and break free from the limitations and restrictions that have veiled their minds and hearts from God’s.. Stop looking at the outward acts of people only and see them the way God does!! He is a HEART man..!!” ~David E. Taylor~
