Chosen To Encourage Others

“The LORD God gives me the right words to encourage the weary. Each morning he awakens me eager to learn his teaching;” Isaiah 50:4 (CEV)

Do you ever encourage others? Well, just like you would want to be encouraged by someone you have to be willing to become an encourager, also. We live in a very selfish society where everything is about “me, myself and I,” but since we are the body of Christ we need to learn how to be body-minded instead of self-centered. The greatest deliverance that a person can experience after the salvation from sin is the deliverance from self. Today, I want you to begin to live a lifestyle where everyday you are constantly encouraging others whether they believe in Jesus or not because that’s radical Christianity. It’s this form of radical Christianity that wins the world for Jesus.

In the above scripture we learn that these “right words” come from God alone and they are not the result of what we think or what we feel. According to the Isaiah 11:2-3, the one with “the Spirit of counsel” does “not judge by what his eyes see, or decide disputes by what his ears hear” instead this person learns to live by the guidance of the Holy Spirit in all areas of their life. When  you encounter a weary, fatigued, or exhausted person your ear is open and eager to hear what God would have to say to that individual. When you release God’s words out of your mouth they will release an atmosphere of peace and refreshing causing many to get that second wind necessary to possess the victory over that situation that they are facing.

The next time someone comes to you with complaints, problems or in distress pray before you speak and ask God to give you the right word to encourage that person. Release heaven’s peace and refreshing into that person’s life by speaking God’s words. Remember, you are an encourager so go and encourage someone today.

1. Why do you think it is important to encourage others?

2. When was the last time you encouraged someone who was at their lowest point in life?

3. What would your life be like if you had no one to encourage you along the way?

  1. This is so true. This week I got an update from my agent that more or less said “still waiting” for word from several publishing houses. At first I was disappointed and worried but then I sent her a word of encouragement, that her weekend would be peaceful. It took the focus off me and made her feel appreciated for what she’s done for me. In doing so, I now feel hopeful for the future.
