What is one of the number one things we are supposed to do for one another? ENCOURAGE! Below is the definition of encourage along with some synonyms.
encourage, inspirit, hearten, embolden mean to fill with courage or strength of purpose. encourage suggests the raising of one's confidence especially by an external agency<the teacher's praise encouraged the students to greater efforts>. inspirit, somewhat literary, implies instilling life, energy, courage, or vigor into something <patriots inspirited the people to resist>. hearten implies the lifting of dispiritedness or despondency by an infusion of fresh courage or zeal <a hospital patient heartened by good news>. embolden implies the giving of courage sufficient to overcome timidity or reluctance <emboldened by her first success, she tried an even more difficult climb>.
We encourage one another in many ways. Tonight lets come together and pray for one another specific persons that come to heart. Next lift up specific ministries the Holy Spirit brings to you, not only those leading but those in support positions.
“So we keep on praying for you, asking our God to enable you to live a life worthy of his call. May he give you the power to accomplish all the good things your faith prompts you to do. 12 Then the name of our Lord Jesus will be honored because of the way you live, and you will be honored along with him. This is all made possible because of the grace of our God and Lord, Jesus Christ.” 2 Thessalonians 1:11
This week be an encourager, starting tonight pray the Holy Spirit leads you to someone you can encourage. It doesn't have to be major, sometimes a simple phone call, or text saying “thinking of you”, or “love ya’ “ can make the world of difference in not only a persons day, but life. God is GOOD!
Love and Blessings!
