Encourage yourself

Written by Mantebeah Elizabeth Matilda Abena.

“David was greatly distressed because the men were talking of stoning him; each one was bitter in spirit because of his sons and daughters. But David found strength in the Lord his God. (NIV) 1 Samuel 30:6

Bible Reading: Psalm 42:1-11

What is eating you up? What has your loss of job done to you? Is your business falling into the drain after taking all necessary precautions? Is there a huge problem in your marriage, that you believe there is no escape? What about your relationships? Are you depressed because you are being slandered for no reason? Or suffering because of a sin you committed?

God’s word is near us today telling us that we must encourage ourselves in the Lord. Whenever we feel depressed by the challenges of this world, we must remember the secret of David, a man after God’s heart. The Bible says, “David found strength in the Lord”. As Christians, we must develop the attitude to take advantage of the spiritual anti-depressants in Psalm 42:1-11. Our ability to question our soul, testify about God’s goodness, admonish ourselves to hope in the Lord is our sign of maturity in God, thereby making us effective for the Lord.

Whatever our problems may be, we must minister to ourselves, as David did, by personally applying the encouragement we give to others. This is what makes a Christian effective in God.

Difficulties abound in life, but take heart! (Part 2) || More
