We All Need Encouragement

Psychologists say that when you encourage someone, it actually changes their brain chemistry. Fuel is sent to the brain and has a positive effect on their performance.

But long before Neuroscience made that discovery, Scripture taught us in Hebrews 13:3 to encourage each other daily. God knew we needed encouragement and created our bodies to use it as fuel.

 

Feeling Lonely

When you feel lonely, you’re most likely to hit a wall and become vulnerable to the enemy. But remember, in Christ, you’re never truly alone. God Himself has promised He is with you. He said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you” (Hebrews 13:5), and Jesus said, “I will be with you always, even to the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:20)

You Have a Cheering Section

The Book of Hebrews tells us that we have a “great cloud of witnesses” in heaven, who are cheering for us as we run our race. If you want to hit your stride, remember that every believer who has ever gone before you – from your passed loved ones all the way back to the great heroes of the Bible – is now cheering for you in heaven.
