Encouraging others in Christ

Do you ever feel like weeping? DON’T!!!

Have you ever thought that we Christians have it tough? I’ve been teaching an overview of the Bible and have just started looking into the Major and Minor Prophets.
Talk about people who were trying to serve God and get discouraged in doing so…Poor Jeremiah, known as the weeping prophet.

TRUSTING that God is with me, although I don’t hear or see HIM right now!

 

 

 

I’ve felt like a weeping prophet before, how about you?
No matter what situation that the prophets found themselves going through, God was always there with them.

JEREMIAH 1:6-8
6 Then said I, Ah, Lord God! behold, I cannot speak: for I am a child.
7 But the Lord said unto me, Say not, I am a child: for thou shalt go to all that I shall send thee, and whatsoever I command thee thou shalt speak.
8 Be not afraid of their faces: for I am with thee to deliver thee, saith the Lord.

Often people struggle with new challenges because they lack self-confidence. They feel they have inadequate ability, training, or experience. Jeremiah thought he was too young and inexperienced to be God’s spokesman to the world. But God promised to be with Him. We must never allow feelings of inadequacy to keep us from obeying God’s call. He will always be with us. When you find yourself avoiding something you know you should do, be careful not to use the lack of self-confidence as an excuse. If God gives you a job to do, He will provide all you need to do it.

FRUITFUL OBSERVATION: God promised to see Jeremiah through trouble, not to keep trouble from coming. God did not insulate him from jailings, deportation, or insults. God does not keep us from encountering life’s storms, but He will see us through them. In fact, He walks through these storms with us.

Let’s trust that God will be with us today and every day no matter what life brings our way!IMG_7555

  4. Great post. For some reason we seem to overlook that the Christian journey promises tribulation. God uses them to conform us into the image of his Son. We must suffer. So, like your post states, we may feel inadequate, and we are, but in him we live, and move, and have our being. Acts 17:28a
