Encouragement

What The Bible Says
When we get together, I want to encourage you in your faith, but I also want to be encouraged by yours.  Accept each other just as Christ has accepted you so that God will be given glory. Encourage each other and build each other up.  You must warn each other every day, while it is still “today,” so that none of you will be deceived by sin and hardened against God.

Romans 1:12 ~ Romans 15:7  ~ 1 Thessalonians 5:11 ~  Hebrews 3:13

 

Praise God and Encourage Others

Read: Psalm 34:1-7
Focus Verse: I prayed to the Lord, and He answered me. He freed me from all my fears. 

In the process of God changing our sinful habits and attitudes it is important we keep our focus on Him.

If you ask ten different people in recovery the best way of achieving and maintaining recovery you will get ten different answers.

Recovery in my life is covered in prayer, meditation and being led by God. I do have trusted people in my life whom I go to bounce things off but the final decision in everything I do lies with me and God. God gave us free will for a reason. I believe that reason is to see how much we have learned through a relationship with Him and how we implement in our daily living. Don’t make any decisions you have not talked to God about.

  • When was the last time you focused on God?

 

Prayer: Lord help me today to focus on You and your will for me.

One of my biggest concerns in my life is ‘people who still suffer from the negative effects of their problems in their lives.’ These verses encourage us to share what God is doing in and through our lives with others. Bill Wilson found relief from alcoholism when he found another alcoholic to share with. We need to learn to do the same. To share our faith and encourage others to get to know Jesus for themselves.
