The following are thoughts of encouragement for your daily life, based on the Word of God, the Bible. Don't be afraid of the dark. The Lord is the Light of your life! Be encouraged!
What are you worried about? Cast all your cares on Him, for He cares for YOU.
Never believe what you started can’t be finished. Don’t allow fear to rob you of the dreams and talents that God has in store for you.
Stick with the road and goals that you are striving for. Don't give up when you don't see where it is all going. Strive for perfection, and let them understand who you represent.
God is good, and is worthy of all praise. Anybody can praise Him when all is going well. That doesn't take any faith. Faith is when you praise Him when all is not certain, when you are on rocky road. It is in these times where we are commanded to make a "sacrifice of praise". And why do we do this? We again do this because He is worthy of all praise. He owns it all. He formed us for His own glory.
Build the foundation that you have. When a builder constructs a house he has to make sure the foundation is sound. Take the time upfront to ensure that the foundation is sound. Test it out. Make sure it can support the weight that you want to put on it.
My God can do anything!
Be of good courage. Wait on the Lord. When you follow Him all that you go through is for your good, to grow you and strengthen your foundation. He's looking for your trust.
God's Word is true. He IS your peace!
Jesus Christ is God’s only provision for our sin. Through Him alone we can know God personally & experience His love.
Paint a picture. Whenever you are doing anything put your whole heart and soul into it. Give it all you have. Make your walk in this life a reflection of God. Let others see God in you. Give your best. Don't do anything halfhearted. Show others what you are made of.
If you are going through a dry place in your life do not believe the lie of the devil when he tries to tell you that God is not there, he does not hear you, or that your circumstances will not change. All of that is a lie, straight from the pit of hell. God will never abandon you. His love for you is infinite.
Don't be frustrated or upset when God seems to be pruning you.
God is what you need.
Stop striving. Rest in the Lord.
I'm glad I have been hurt a lot in my life, because it has drawn me close to God. I've come to understand his unconditional love for me through all of it. It was worth the trip.
Be true to yourself. Love yourself.
Mean what you say and say what you mean. Be honorable with your actions.
Take time out of your day to thank the Lord. Praise His blessed name. He is worthy of all praise. He is the King of Kings, and Lord of Lords.
People may disappoint you, circumstances may not work out, but God never changes. He loves you unconditionally and does not change. He does not ever disappoint you.
When you are called by God to do something, trust Him. Do what He commanded you to do, and don't be afraid.
Build an altar to God in your heart.
My strength comes from His hand.
Don't say "by luck" you made it. Say, "I have been blessed by God". There is no such thing as luck. You wouldn't even be here reading this, if God did not form you. He is real. Don't deny Him. He never denies you.
God counts every one of your tears...
Regardless what you are feeling, the Lord has not gone away.
God does not live and work by the moment. Don’t limit your scope to the present. God works for eternity, and His focus is on the eternal.
When you feel like you are weak, remember you are not weak. You are strong, in Jesus name.
Every time I am afraid, I get into God's Word and I learn to rest in Him. He is with me. I can fall back into His hands knowing that He has me. His power will sustain me through the fire.
Walk into the fire, and remember that with me you can make it through the storm. The joy of the Lord is your strength.
God has a remedy for our failures. It is called the blood of Jesus. It will wash you white as snow...
The rivers offer drink for the thirsty. Come, drink from God's river. The water is clean, pure and refreshing.
God inspired thoughts are the best. They’re from Him! Rejoice, and sing Alleluia!
Understand your abilities, and polish them up. They will shine so much that you will not see your incapability. Your incapability will vanish, for you are able to do all things in Christ who strengthens you.
When we close our eyes for the last time in this world, we look forward to God saying to us "Well done, good and faithful servant." Continue to fight the good fight of faith. Learn of God, and do the works that He has shown you. Learn obedience, that your heart will become one with the Father who has given you life.
Choose to trust God.
God will tell you what you need to do.
Wait on the Lord.
Thank you God for providing my needs.
Establish many goals in your life, with righteousness and the kingdom of Heaven as a part of each goal.
God is taking you to a new level.
Give credit where credit is due. Learn to recognize God’s blessings and assign God the praise. Cease the weak praise, the “things just worked out” methodology. Things don’t just “work out.” God causes the blessings to prosper within you.
God will use persecution to make you stronger.
God will direct your steps.
Don't believe the lie of the devil that you don't know how you are going to make it another day. You have the King of Kings and Lord of Lords with you. He will carry you through and will provide you with the tools to make it through. Your life is not out of control. When you gave your life to Christ you relinquished control to God the Father. And what can be better than that?
Where there is purity, there is strength.
Do not look to sin as a source of your security, for there is no basis to that way of thinking.
You’ll know where to walk with God's instruction, and where you wind up is where you will want to be.
Satan joys in making what is wrong, right and what is right, wrong. You must read the Bible everyday to reinforce the righteousness of Christ.
Nothing is impossible for you with God by your side. The incapability you have is all in your mind.
Strive for success, and learn from God's Word what that success is.
Analysis gives the human side to understanding, and it in no way measures faith.
Water the seed of love in your life.
What kind of work do you want me to do, Lord? Where do you want me to go? Please give me direction to the job you want me to do, and let me be energetic to do it and be pleased with the road that you are setting before me. Make me bold in it, knowing that it is you that has given me this mandate.
Fear, go away. God is opening up the windows of heaven for my supply. Praise His name for His protection.
God has set your clock for this life, and has scheduled all your appointments.
Everything in life is a step. Take each step as they come to you.
Don't be afraid of anything. The Lord, your God is with you.
God is good, ALL the time. It doesn't depend on circumstances. By nature God is good, and deserves all of our praise. Without Him, where would we be?
Remember how far God has brought you. Honor Him by going further!
Do your best... Polish up your act.... Be all that God made you to be.... Give and serve others, as you would like to be served.... Bring God into your life so that others can see Him...
Let your creative spirit honor the Lord your God.
Let honor and integrity be the way you run your business… And your life...
