When you think of someone who is an encourager, who is better than God? To sinners, to his disciples, or to anyone, Jesus gave hope!
The root word for “encourage” is “courage”. To encourage someone is to give that person a level of hope that will give them the courage to face whatever is before them. Jesus gives us hope like no else can! The reason is that he knows our days! He wants us to know that we “can”! The enemy, the flesh, and this world, would tell you that you “can’t make it”. “It’s too tough.”
Let me ask you a question. What is too tough for God? If you and I are hidden in Jesus, there is nothing you cannot do! He gives you the “dunamis” : the power – to face anything!
The Lord said to his disciples, “do not let your heart be troubled” (John 14:1). Jesus said this right after telling Peter that he would deny him. Wow! Doesn’t that encourage you? Jesus wanted his disciples to know that even though there would be difficulties to face, they were to choose to be hopeful. Why? The verse goes on to say, “believe in God, believe also in me”.
Celebrate the God who is with you! Keep your eyes on the one who will encourage you in all that happens. You can make it with Jesus, the great Encourager of your soul! We appreciate your Comments
