Encourage Yourself In The Lord

And David was greatly distressed; for the people spake of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and for his daughters: but David encouraged himself in the LORD his God. (1 Samuel 30:6 KJV)

“You are on a journey in this life. There will be obstacles and potholes. Sometimes things will cause you to ask, God what am I doing here? There is something I want you to know though. If you fall down, you have a PERSONAL  RESPONSIBILITY to pick yourself up, brush yourself off and move on.”

Those were some of the power filled words delivered by Reverend Jeremy Francis of the Estridge and Bethel Moravian Churches in St. Kitts, while preaching at the Unique Touch Christian Centre’s 9th Anniversary Service.

“Encourage Yourself In The Lord!” was constantly chanted by the Reverend as he excited his congregation and carried them down a path to remind them that God is still a deliverer today.

Reverend Francis used a passage of scripture from I Samuel 30 to guide his sermon. He reminded his listeners that even in Bible days, God’s people had to deal with trials and circumstances.

“David too was in distress – in problems. The people actually were planning to take him to the end of the village and stone him. He was down. He was grieved.” Suggested Reverend Francis.

He then got into a spirit of excitement as he shouted these words from the pulpit. “But David Strengthened Himself in the Lord. But David Encouraged Himself in the Lord. So too, when you are going through your trying times, the source from which you should draw, is GOD.”

The congregation shouted ‘amens’ and ‘hallelujahs’ and gave a CRAZY  PRAISE. As I looked around, I could see a few persons on their feet and clapping. I honestly had to contain myself too. I really felt like running up and down the aisle. This word was just for me.

Reverend Francis quickly stepped down from the sanctuary and called two persons from the congregation to illustrate how David had helped an enemy and how that enemy in return had led him and his clan to the spoil so they could recover all that they would have lost and more.

“David made up in his mind, having enquired of the Lord, that he was going to PURSUE, OVERTAKE and WITHOUT  FAIL,  RECOVER  IT  ALL!” Reverend Francis said. “Stay Put! Encourage Yourself! God will take your enemies and make them your footstool. God will use your enemies to cause you to prosper.” The Reverend suggested.

I opened my eyes a bit wider having looked up from writing and the full figured Reverend was overly excited and jumping on the stage now as he said, "Even before you do it, success is yours. Success is sure. God will fight ALL your battles." This was certainly a word from the Lord.

“Things might be rough. No money might be dey. But that is a great time to encourage yourself in the Lord. Victory is Assured!”

I was the host for the event and as I saw he was closing his sermon, I wondered what I should really say after such a power packed HOPE  WORD. When I took the microphone, all I was left to do was to ask the congregation to rise to their feet and begin to declare some positive things over their lives and send up the praise.

Friend, I honestly wish you were there to hear this POWERFUL  HOPE  word for yourself delivered by a Moravian Preacher – Reverend Jeremy Francis. It was timely and to the point.

No matter what you are going through, let us NEVER  GIVE  UP, but do as David did in I Samuel 30:6 – Encourage ourselves in the Lord. Stay Firm. Stay Strong. Victory is Assured. Even though your enemies rise up against you today and other days, like David, do good to them. God will make those very same enemies and haters, your FOOTSTOOL to better days and better things. DO  GOOD!
