I’ve been feeling a prompting to encourage you to be encourager.
Someone sent me a personal encouragement today – “Praise God for warriors like you who step out and pioneer the things that are so close to His heart Thank you for blessing us all with your ministry – it matters much”
Too often we can take others for granted, especially those who do not have visible, out the front ministries. God Kingdom is so much about “all” His people and not just the public profiles. So we need to encourage “all” the people, all the time.
Do not let a spirit of “familiarity” dull your God given ability to release encouragement over others. The bible says to “encourage one another daily”. It is perhaps the greatest gift you can give someone – to recognise their efforts – to recognise their obedience in stepping out in something God has told them to do.
Do not judge someone by the size of their gift or ministry – simply encourage someone for stepping out. It does not have to be big, it does not have to change the world – it just needs to bring heaven to earth.
“All” of us can do that daily, so keep an eye out it – and encourage people to keep going.
The super spiritual among us will say we should keep going because God notices. Yes He does. But God put us in family to be loved and supported and encouraged.
What better way to demonstrate love than to encourage others – to notice their contribution.
Its time we noticed the obedience, efforts and blessings of those around us – and encourage “all” to keep at it.
