“Praise the Lord: praise God our Savior! For each day, He carries us in His arms. Our God is a God who saves. The sovereign Lord rescues us from death.”Psalms 68:19-20
“The generous will prosper: those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed.”Proverbs 11:25
Well, it’s another blessed morning, and I want to encourage you in the Lord! Here goes.
God is your daily bread. He restores you day by day. It feels good doesn’t it?
Since He does this for you, how about you doing this for someone else? Are you daily restoring someone the way that God daily restores you? Who are you feeding into or investing time in?
Believe me, I am constantly attempting to get better at this, myself, too. It is my mission, each week, to visit, text, or call those God has put on my heart to impact and motivate by the Word of God. I do this daily, with some individuals. With others, it is weekly or even monthly.
The point is to do SOMETHING. Invest in a younger family member, neighbor, or a struggling friend. This should be the desire of all Kingdom people (Ephesians 4:12).
Even if it is just one person that you reach, you are impacting the Kingdom of God in a mighty way! As you are led to, invest in the hearts, minds, and spirits of those around you. There are no rules to this, except to be Spirit-filled and Spirit-led when we serve God https://biblehub.com/colossians/3-17.htm.
Just stay in the mind of Christ.
Follow “the mind of Christ” and His example by, simply, having a love for humanity and taking an interest in others. He has equipped us to restore others:
“so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.”2 Timothy 3:7
While we are not Christ, we should be reflecting Him daily (2 Corinthians 3:18)! This means not limiting our outreach to just what we do corporately. While serving in a church or church-affiliated organization does have an impact, you are the church too (1 Corinthians 12:27). Your individual gifts, testimony, and love for God can also be used to restore someone’s life on a personal level!
Okay. This brings me to the end of my post. It is my prayer that something I have said touched you, recharged you, or at least gave you something to ponder and pray over.
Have a blessed Sunday in the Lord, everyone!
