A Disciple Encourages …
We often should ask ourselves this question: what could I do today to encourage someone? We should expect God to guide us in what we do, and who we should see, so that He can use us in this way.
The Bible says, “The Lord God has given Me the tongue of disciples, that I may know how to sustain the weary one with a word. He awakens Me morning by morning, He awakens My ear to listen as a disciple.” (see Isaiah 50:4, NASB)
It’s something you can do too, every morning, listen in to what God is saying, expecting Him to tell you what to say and how to encourage specific people He places in your path. As a disciple, you’re at God’s beck and call, listening to Him, His Word, His counsel, His orders ... And as you do so, it’s He who places the words of encouragement in your mouth. 😊
Often, as we talk with God, we may start thinking about a certain person ... that’s the Holy Spirit’s way of telling us, “Encourage her today!” or “Catch up with him!,” etc. That happened once, and it turned out that a friend had suffered a stroke in a foreign country.
So, if you feel a prompting from God in your heart for someone, call him/her or send a short message. This simple decision could make a huge difference ... believe me! And, glory to God, the Lord restored my friend to health.
Let the Holy Spirit lead you and ask God to show you who you can encourage today and how. You’ll see ... often it’s these small things that make the difference in people’s lives!
