Recently, I was talking with a dear friend who is a Pastor and she shared some enlightening scriptures that she used to encourage her congregation. I was so inspired, encouraged and uplifted after reading the scriptures that I wanted to share it with all of you.
She used 4 key words that are very familiar but combined with these scriptures, they were powerful. I realized that these simple words once combined with the powerful word of God became excellent tools to help us navigate through this journey called life. I hope that you are encouraged, inspired and motivated to use these tools to conquer your life!
1. PRAY – Luke 18:1 “And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint;”
2. WAIT – Isaiah 40:29-31″He giveth power to the faint, and to them that have no might he increaseth strength. Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall: 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.”
3. EXPECT-Psalms 62:5 “My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from him.“
4. LEARN– Philippians 4:9 – “The things you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.”
