Words of encouragement build people’s confidence and courage. Disappointments large and small, conflict, and lack of results are just some of the things that can rob people’s energy and enthusiasm, and cause them to lose sight of the vision and goal. How can you encourage others today?
I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.—Philippians 1:3-6
Prayer: Lord, thank You for the people who encourage me and partner with me to bring Your vision to reality. Thank You for being at work in them and in me to accomplish Your purposes. Help me to encourage others today, just as You encourage me. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
