Encouraging Words

cb devo july 23“Then David said unto the messenger, Thus shalt thou say unto Joab, Let not this thing displease thee, for the sword devoureth one as well as another: make thy battle more strong against the city, and overthrow it: and encourage thou him.” 2 Samuel 11:25 (KJV)

Ever went thru a trial and just in the moment you felt alone, you receive a card in the mail or have a friend call with a word of hope for you? Encouragement – everyone needs a little encouragement. Why not take time today to look around your circle of friends, family, and coworkers – maybe there is someone who is hurting and just needs a little note of encouragement, a text or a phone call. What if everyone stopped and thought about those around them? Being sensitive to others needs in the midst of our crazy busy lives means we have to stop make that one phone call, send a text or write that one little note. We need to take the time to listen when God whispers and places someone on our hearts and obey His call of encouragement. Saying we will do it later only leads to disobedience and forgetting. God uses us as His vessel to reach others – how many times have we thought about a person and later let it go? Take that moment and stop long enough today to think about who you can encourage. Pick up the pen or the phone, reach out and give that blessing.

“Father, thank you for sending others to encourage me in times of trials. Help me to be sensitive to your whispers to encourage others.”

For His Glory,

  1. some times all one may need to do is walk over and give the person a hug; which doesn’t take much effort but the eyes and ears have to be open and attune to what is going on around them, see things outside of your world and to take a walk in their shoes
