Five Ways To Encourage Yourself In The Lord
Perhaps at this juncture, you’re wondering HOW you can encourage yourself in the Lord and in so doing be a blessing to yourself and others as well. There are five main ways this can be accomplished.
First, we encourage ourselves through PRAYER. In Phil. 4:6-8, Paul cites this most powerful means of receiving peace, in spite of troubling circumstances. We are to pray about everything that produces anxiety. (Are YOU doing this?) If you are worried about the future, PRAY! Also, see Matt. 6:34.
Second, singing praises to God will bring encouragement. This is not only “a safeguard” (Phil. 3:1), but also the God-given means to “silence the foe and the avenger” (Psa. 8:2)! See also Psa. 149:6-9. In fact, just listening to Christian music will help greatly. Saul felt better, just because he listened to David playing his harp (1 Sam. 16:23).
A third way to encourage yourself is through Christian fellowship. Nothing can replace this important aspect of our race. In fact, in Acts 2:42, the early church placed it on a par with Bible study, prayer and communion! The people you choose to fellowship with in your free time will greatly help or hinder your walk with God. See Prov. 13:20; 1 Cor. 15:33; etc.
Fourth, Bible study with meditation upon God and his Word will also help. In Proverbs 4:22, the Hebrew teaches that God’s Word is “medicine” for our spirits. Furthermore, God’s Word was directly given for encouragement (Romans 15:4). We are promised “perfect peace” if our MINDS are steadfast in thinking about God (Isaiah 26:3). (THOUGHTS DO create or disrupt our peace. Few realize the importance of their thought life.)
Fifth, try talking to yourself. The sons of Korah used this technique as shown in Psalm 42:5,6. See how they did it.
Now that you know WHAT to do and HOW to do it, the choice is yours, as it was for David! To be victorious, at times, you’re going to have to encourage yourself in the Lord. Victory and blessings followed David’s choice. On the other hand, try to imagine what would have happened if he didn’t!
