BE ENCOURAGED.. by Nina Keegan

It’s  time to get a new “self sermon” it’s time to preach to ourselves like David did…” oh my soul, why  are you downcast?”

If there’s one thing I know about David , it is that he would have the smallest of pity parties but then he would turn things around right away and encourage himself in the Lord… This is what the Bible means when it tells us to renew our mind and to resist the enemy at the onset.

Psalm 10:1

Why do You stand afar off, O LORD? Why do You hide Yourself in times of trouble?

“A happy heart makes the face cheerful, but heartache crushes the spirit.” (Proverbs 15:13)

What sermon are you preaching to yourself? This sermon will deem the course of your life!

As the mind thinks the man follows! It’s time we stop living according to our situations and start living by revelation…

 We must have a revelation of who is in the fire with us… You plus Jesus is the majority.. it’s time  l to start finishing the Devil‘s sermons with God sermons of grace… Grace is always greater than any failure, Grace is always greater than anything you need… Breakthrough, healing, restoration, provision? Let’s start preaching the revelation that Jesus already died for all that we will ever need…
And it is already ours because we are the righteousness of God in Christ!!!

The Bible tells us to let what we think on and what we say be pleasing and acceptable to the Lord… Can you imagine if God heard some of the sermons that we preach to ourselves? The sermons of not being good enough, it’s too late, we’ve done too much wrong, I will never amount to anything, nothing ever goes right for me, and the list goes on and on!!!

Many of us sound like a broken record… That is our continuous  loop and what we feed ourselves daily through our own negative self declarations!
It’s time to break that record and to sing a new song… It’s time to get a new sermon it’s time to encourage yourself and be the coach of your own soul!

 How would you handle someone else that spoke to you the way you speak to yourself? Sometimes we can be our own worst enemies and our  own bullies!

Let’s start changing our silent sermons, let’s focus on almighty God, let’s focus on what he has already done for us through the blood of his son Jesus.. let’s start our sermons with the SOURCE and not with self…

God is our source of all things… Begin to praise him and thank him .. a thankful heart is the key to overflowing joy, it’s time to start praying God‘s will be done today on earth as it is in heaven… If your situation doesn’t look like
Heaven,  then change what you are speaking over your life… God wants us to be healthy, happy and fruitful.. full of peace, and overflowing with joy.

Stop getting so complacent and so used to things being the way they are.. you are not stuck there!!

God has a better plan for your life and it starts right now!!!!!

But David encouraged himself in the Lord. I Samuel 30:6

For whatever was written in the past was written for our instruction, so that we may have hope through endurance and through the encouragement from the Scriptures. Romans 15:4 

Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Isaiah 41:10
The LORD your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing. Zephaniah 3:17
No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it. 1 Corinthians 10:13
So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal. 2 Corinthians 4:16-18
