Encouraging Words

In believing the power of God’s promises for others, our confidence in His promises for us seems to grow as well. I like to call it the “encouraging words” boomerang effect.

Encouraging words have the power and potential to bring courage to the discouraged. Hope to the hopeless. Assurance to the insecure. Clarity to the confused. Strength to the weak. Calm to someone’s chaos. Comfort for someone’s sadness.

You be surprised how many of us are waiting for our phones to ring and hear a voice on the other end giving them a kind word, a boost of confidence, a note with a Bible verse like {Joshua 1:9} Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.” or a short prayer. Even just a simple facebook post or email saying what we really appreciate about them, or how you see God’s heart in something they do will make such an impact!

So, if you feel in your heart to reach out to someone, do it, Pick Up your phone and make a difference in someone’s life today!!

Lord, thank You for the power of Your words that give me courage to become who You’ve created me to be – to go to places You’re calling me to go and climb spiritual heights that are out of my reach without Your help. Give me Your encouragement and help me encourage someone else today. In Jesus Name, Amen.
