Encourage Yourself

Encouraging Words with Pastor Bruce & Suzi Elman

Do you ever encourage yourself in the LORD? Sometimes, if we don’t encourage ourselves, we don’t receive any encouragement at all. And we all need to be encouraged! We need to be our own encourager through MESSIAH YESHUA.

In our Scripture today, David and his men found themselves in seemingly hopeless circumstances. But David didn’t wait for a pat on the back; he encouraged and strengthened himself in the LORD. 

The key to being able to encourage yourself in the LORD is having confidence in His love, His ways and His Word—you can decide to believe it or not! 

If you do believe, you will have the confidence in GOD, and you can then begin to encourage yourself in and through MESSIAH YESHUA!     

1 Sam. 30:6
Now David was greatly distressed for the people spoke of stoning him, because the souls for all the people were grieved, every man for his sons and daughters. But David strengthened himself in the Lord his GOD.                     

 In what specific ways can you encourage yourself in the LORD today?
