Encourage Yourself

Sometimes we go through trials and tribulations that seem to never end. I am reminded of the scripture Isaiah 40:29-31. 29. He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength. 30. Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall: 31. But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. When we have prayed the prayer of faith, but the enemy continue to increase his attacks we must speak over ourselves; encourage

ourselves. There is a song by Donald Lawrence and the Tri City Singers “Encourage Yourself”. Below are a couple of verses of the song.

Sometimes you have to encourage yourself

Sometimes you have to speak victory during the test

And no matter how you feel

Speak the word and you will be healed

Speak over yourself, encourage yourself in the Lord

Sometimes you have to speak the word over yourself

The pressure is all around but God is present help

The enemy created walls but remember giants, they do fall

Speak over yourself, encourage yourself in the Lord.

David was a man after God’s heart. Throughout the Psalms we read encouraging words he spoke over himself. So when we find ourselves at that place where we feel we can’t go on we must start speaking words of encouragement over ourselves.
