BE ENCOURAGED

Updated on July 7, 2016

Be Still & Know That I Am God

BE ENCOURAGED Isaiah 41:4,10 We get so caught up in the problems of our nations, our world, families and communities. I think we sometimes forget that God is still in control. Pray sincerely for our leaders, that their hearts be turned toward Almighty God; for He has not left us. From generations past, to our generation today, and to all future generations - He is with us. He is with us in Afghanistan, in Isreal, on the Gulf Coast. God is more than the WHOLE world against us. So hold on, be encouraged.

Pray for His presence, His strength, His devine knowledge of our circumstances, and His devine hand to intervene. The hands of our God are not too short to save and deliver. Look to the Word of God for encouragement. Gather with our brothers and sisters in the Lord for fellowship, and pray for direction. Have that little talk with Jesus, let Him be the bearer of our concerns. Don't forget to share our delights, happiness, our joyous events with Him who loves to be a part of our whole life. Be still for a minute and hear His voice of direction, encouragement and love.

I wrote this today because as I was reading Isaiah 41:1-10, I heard the words "Be Encouraged." So I began to ask, "Why?" So I went back and re-read, and got stuck on verses 4 and 10. That was about 6:30 AM. As this morning has progressed several things have happened, that made me know, He is with me and He encourages in so many different ways. Now let us go out and encourage others.

      Beautiful Words. I remember that verse and thank you for bringing it to mind. It takes away anxiety. Sort of feels like "My presensce shall go with you and I will give you rest" which I think is in Exodus.

      Thanks for such an encouraging Hub, that will speak to the hearts of many.

      Congrats on your 10th Hub. :)

      Good Hub!

      Hebrews 13:1 Let brotherly love continue.

      Hebrews 13:2 Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.

      Hebrews 13:3 Remember them that are in bonds, as bound with them; and them which suffer adversity, as being yourselves also in the body.

      Hebrews 13:4 Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.

      Hebrews 13:5 Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.

      Hebrews 13:6 So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.

      Hebrews 13:7 Remember them which have the rule over you, who have spoken unto you the word of God: whose faith follow, considering the end of their conversation.

      Hebrews 13:8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.
