If you are feeling discouraged or would just like a bit of encouragement this post will help you.
Your problems may be big, but your God is bigger. You are more than a conqueror and no weapon formed against you shall prosper!
2. A Word of Encouragement:
When other intended to harm you, God intended for good. (Genesis 50:20)
3. A Word of Encouragement:
God has so much planned for your life, even if it doesn’t look like it right
now. It is the same as looking out into the ocean. You cannot see beyond a
certain point, but you know there is more out there. In the same way, believe
in God that he has a great plan for your life. So great, you cannot see it all.
4. A Word of Encouragement
The Bible says in the book of Genesis, when you intended to harm me, God intended for good. I love this verse. It demonstrates to me that in times I think I have been “set-up” for something bad, God has a purpose to “set me up” for something better. Joseph was sold by his brothers, Daniel was put into a lion’s den, and Jesus was betrayed by Judas. In these situations when these people were set up for harm, God had a bigger plan destined for their lives. God used these negative circumstances to bring each of these people higher. So when you feel like you’ve been “set-up” for harm, remember that it could be part of God’s master plan to “set you up” for something greater!
5. A Word of Encouragement
The Lord will give strength unto his people; the Lord will bless his people with peace. (Psalm 29:11)
6. A Word of Encouragement
Philippians 1:6 tells us that Jesus Christ will complete every good thing He has started in you. If things aren’t going to well, if you’ve started something great and can’t seem to accomplish, if you are loosing hope– remember that all good things will be completed. God will not leave you half-empty and discouraged. He will do what He said He will do.
7. A Word of Encouragement
Have you ever trusted in someone and they deserted you? Are you longing for that mother/father figure that you’ve felt you haven’t really had? In Psalms 27:10 the Bible tells you that when your mother and father has left you, God will take you up. This does not only apply to parents, but other people too. Friends, co-workers, and those who have left you. God says that even though they have forsaken you, even though they are not around– He is here. He will provide. He will protect. He will guide you. And my friend, God will love you and be better than that (those) individual(s) could ever be to you.
8. A Word of Encouragement
God qualifies the unqualified. Moses, who was shy and believed he didn’t speak well, led the Hebrew slaves out of slavery. God helped Moses speak to Pharaoh and Moses was able to lead the people out of bondage. Ester, a young woman, was not fit for a queen. But God poured His favor on her and she won favor in the king’s sight. When she became the king’s wife she was able to help protect the Jews. (Which reminds me of a verse: Proverbs 3:3-4, it says if you let love and faithfulness lead you, you will gain favor of God andman. This is exactly what Ester did). David, who was just a boy, was sent to defeat Goliath. No one believed he was strong enough to do it, but God qualified him. If you are feeling unqualified, don’t worry. God loves these people. He uses them in great ways to do great things!
