Encourage One Another

Encourage the weak and fainthearted so that they may not fall. For the Lord will test, try, and refine His chosen ones. He will bring you through the fire and the storm of each trial to stretch, expand, and move you to the place He wants you to be. When you were weak, pressed, and stressed by the testing hand of the Lord, He is doing it to mold you into His image. He has accomplished it before with others and He will do it again with you.

You will make it and you will succeed, He will make sure of it. I encourage you in the Lord to keep pressing in towards Him more and more. As you draw nearer to the end, things will increase in difficulty and the pressing will be harder than ever before. But you will not be alone. God will help you. Pray and He will encourage, admonish, and lift up in Jesus’ name. He will hear and He will do it. So likewise do for others what they can’t do for themselves through encouragement.

Rejoice when the Lord gives. Be humble and meek when He takes away. Give thanks on all occasions for this is the will of God for you. Do not forsake those things of the Lord you don’t know or understand, at the right time He will make His will clear. 

Hold fast to what is good and keep away from all evil. Dedicate your heart, body, soul, and spirit to the work the Lord has given you. With full trust, hope, and faith in His promise. The Lord Himself will instruct, cleanse, and sanctify you in His presence. He will strengthen and encourage you and it will all happen according to His perfect will, plan, and purposes. God bless you.

And we urge you, brothers, admonish the idle, encourage the fainthearted, help the weak, be patient with them all. See that no one repays anyone evil for evil, but always seek to do good to one another and to everyone. Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

Do not quench the Spirit. Do not despise prophecies, but test everything; hold fast what is good. Abstain from every form of evil. Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Thessalonians 5:14-23
