Encourage Yourself

Encourage Yourself

(1 Samuel 30:6 NKJV)

Now David was greatly distressed, for the people spoke of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and his daughters. But David strengthened himself in the LORD his God.

It is alright to have people around to encourage you when you feel very discouraged. But you cannot always count on that. There will be times when it seems you are all alone by yourself. What do you do when no one is there to comfort and encourage you? Do you give up and call it quits? You don’t have to. There is always a way out.

The wisdom of God is released when your spirit man is in the right shape. You cannot afford to stay discouraged. In fact, you need all the courage you can get to stay on top of the situation. It is good to know that you can turn to the Holy Spirit. Jesus called Him another “Comforter” because He knows how to comfort better than any man.

He is right there within you to cheer you up at all times. Stir yourself up. You can’t afford to allow self-pity to keep you away from divine wisdom. Put God’s word in your mouth and let the Holy Spirit do what He knows best. Be encouraged, you are more than a conqueror.

1Samuel 13


I have a strong foundation of wisdom for every aspect of my life. I do not live by the natural wisdom of this world, but I do operate by the divine wisdom of God. Christ, the wisdom of God, lives within me; I know the deep secrets of God. I walk with the wise, so I cannot be destroyed.

Evil communications do not proceed out of my mouth, but that which is good for the building up of others. My mouth is a well of life and wisdom flows out of it continually. My faith is not built on the wisdom of this world but on the power of God. I function in life by the wisdom that the Holy Spirit teaches.

I am very discerning of spiritual things because the wisdom of God is at work in me. I pay attention to the word of God, which is able to make me wise unto health, protection, deliverance and all-round soundness. I search the Scriptures daily and I always receive revelations and wisdom for a victorious living.

The devil cannot comprehend my life because I am founded on the wisdom of God. The wisdom of God works all things out for my good. My life is advancing because I am increasing in divine wisdom. The secrets of God for my life are revealed unto me. The eyes of my understanding are enlightened because I have the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of God.

I have access to the hidden wisdom that God has ordained for my glory. I love correction and reproof. I am open to wise counsel and my destiny is protected from destruction. I maintain a teachable spirit and adhere to godly instructions. I have the mind of Christ and I reign in life by the supernatural wisdom that comes from above.
