Encourage yourself In The Lord, an inspiration of life that will inspire you.
A lot is going on around the world these days. Some people are are tired of life itself, some are tired of the level they are, while others are even tired of sitting down at home locked up in this pandemic.
Despite everything going on in the world currently, a lot of others have structured and positioned themselves. So much so that the pandemic became a huge opportunity for them.
The truth is, there is always something that you can do, but most times we don’t even realize that. Some may even know what they can do yet they can’t encourage themselves to take first step step. So they sit down waiting for someone to motivation them.
It is true that we need encouragement from people especially from our family and loved ones. But sometimes the same people who ought to encourage us are even the ones who discourages us.
Sometimes, it’s not really their fault they don’t just understand. So you that understands better you encourage yourself and take the first step? Will you sit down and wait to be pushed before you make a move? Think.
You don’t need to be encouraged by any body to take a step. You don’t need the approval of anybody to become what you want in life. People’s opinion about your life shouldn’t restrict you from doing what you know that is worth doing. The truth is, whatever you do in life people will always talk.
Whether it is good or bad people will always talk. If no one talks about you then there is a serious problem with you. They talk about you because you’re somebody. If they don’t talk about you then you’re nobody. You don’t need to answer them when they talk because their opinion about you does not really matter. What matters is what God is saying concerning you.
All you need to do is to be diligent in that thing you’re doing no matter how little it may be. It could be a job, no matter what it is, as long as it is not contrary to God’s will it will definitely pay off. Be patient and diligent in your dealings and let your results answer your critics.
Don’t be surprised if people who ought to believe in your dreams, vision, and potentials behave like you don’t have anything to offer. When people who ought to encourage you behave as though they’ve not seen anything positive in you. They behave like you can never become anything better.
Remember the brethren of Jesus Christ did same to him. Despite been privileged to have the Lord as a brother yet they were so blinded that they could not see the treasures in him. John 7:5
Don’t wait to be encouraged by anybody before you make a move. Until you see the champion inside of you, no one will.
Remember the story of the men that were sent to search the land of Canaan in Numbers chapter 13. And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight. (Numbers 13:33).
Because they saw themselves as grasshoppers and so they were seen as grasshoppers. There is this saying that you will be addressed the way you address yourself.
See yourself the way you want to be seen, Love yourself the way you want to be loved, and respect yourself the way you want to be respected. It all starts within. You can’t love others if you don’t love yourself. You can’t respect others when you don’t respect yourself.
You don’t need to be encouraged before you take a step, a move, or a leap.
Like David encourage yourself in Lord and go ahead to pursue, overtake, and recover all. You have God and that’s more than enough to succeed. Because one with God is majority.
