Encourage Yourself & Others
Philemon 1:4-7 AMP - I thank my God always, making mention of you in my prayers, because I hear of your love and of your faith which you have toward the Lord Jesus and toward all the saints (God’s people). I pray that the sharing of your faith may become effective and powerful because of your accurate knowledge of every good thing which is ours in Christ. For I have had great joy and comfort and encouragement from your love, because the hearts of the saints (God’s people) have been refreshed through you, my brother.
[Phm 1:4-6 NKJV] I thank my God, making mention of you always in my prayers, hearing of your love and faith which you have toward the Lord Jesus and toward all the saints, that the sharing of your faith may become effective by the acknowledgment of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus.
For we have great joy and consolation in your love, because the hearts of the saints have been refreshed by you, brother.
I have been meditation on this for several days and really want to share what God was revealing to me. So this is what hit me (that the sharing of your faith may become effective by the acknowledgment of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus.) (because the hearts of the saints have been refreshed by you)
In other words when we acknowledge the Good Things that are ours in Jesus Christ being one of His then the hearts of others are effected. So when I tell people of God's goodness an what he has and is doing in my life, family, business and my church it will cause others to feel HOPEFUL and not only that when we walk in His Goodness towards others they also feel the Love of God.
So who are you sharing His Goodness with, are you complaining about your circumstances or are you rejoicing in His Goodness even when it seems like everything is falling apart.
Let me tell you I am facing major set backs in my personal life and family BUT in the midst of it all I am seeing God's HANDS moving in my Purpose & Destiny. In the midst of bad reports, loosing a job that has brought us financially stability and able to take care of family members who were struggling financially until they got back on their feet and taking care of two households we are now TRUSTING God daily for provision and we have not missed a beat of His Goodness, being able to pay the bills and set up a ministry, tithe & offer as usual an even above. God has never failed us in Finances, Health/Healing and seeing our loved ones loving the Lord with all they are now and in the future.
So today encourage yourself and others by looking at and sharing His Goodness. Even if it is you woke up this morning.
Trusting Him is just simply realizing what He has already done for you and for someone else it bring hope in Him which builds faith to trust Him for everything.
I pray that this message encourages you today.
I Will Praise You In ALL Situations!!!
