Encouragement

 

I declare that I get to Live in God’s favor and love and I get enjoyment and encouragement through this. His love has chased me down today!
I know today that I am greatly blessed, highly favored and deeply loved by my Savior, and experience more and more of His abundant grace!
“Because of Jesus’ finished work, God gives me what Christ deserves, not what I deserve. I’m expecting good things to happen to me this week because God loves me! He has great plans for me!”

John 1:1-5 (AMP)

In the beginning [before all time] was the Word (Christ), and the Word was with God, and the Word was God Himself. He was present originally with God. All things were made and came into existence through Him; and without Him was not even one thing made that has come into being. In Him was Life, and the Life was the Light of men. And the Light shines on in the darkness, for the darkness has never overpowered it [put it out or absorbed it or appropriated it, and is unreceptive to it].

 Psalm 119:105 (MSG)

By your words I can see where I’m going; they throw a beam of light on my dark path.

Joshua 1:7-9  (MSG) I Reworded

I make sure to carry out The Revelation that The Holy Spirit commanded me, every bit of it. I don’t get off track, either left or right, so as to make sure I get to where I am going. And I don’t for a minute let this Book of The Revelation be out of mind. I Ponder and meditate on it day and night, making sure to practice everything written in it. This enables me to get where I am going; successfully. God has commanded me to have Strength, Courage and Not to be timid; and not to get discouraged. God, my God, is with me every step I take.”

 Jeremiah 29:11  (AMP)

For I know the thoughts and plans that I have for you, says the Lord, thoughts and plans for welfare and peace and not for evil, to give you hope in your final outcome

Isaiah 1:18  (AMP)

Come now, and let us reason together, says the Lord. Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be like wool

Isaiah 43:18-19  (AMP)

Do not [earnestly] remember the former things; neither consider the things of old.     Behold, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs forth; do you not perceive and know it and will you not give heed to it? I will even make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.

Luke 11:9-13  (AMP)

So I say to you, Ask and keep on asking and it shall be given you; seek and keep on seeking and you shall find; knock and keep on knocking and the door shall be opened to you. For everyone who asks and keeps on asking receives; and he who seeks and keeps on seeking finds; and to him who knocks and keeps on knocking, the door shall be opened. What father among you, if his son asks for a loaf of bread, will give him a stone; or if he asks for a fish, will instead of a fish give him a serpent? Or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion? If you then, evil as you are, know how to give good gifts [gifts that are to their advantage] to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask and continue to ask Him!

John 14:21-23  (AMP)

The person who has My commands and keeps them is the one who [really] loves Me; and whoever [really] loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I [too] will love him and will show (reveal, manifest) Myself to him. [I will let Myself be clearly seen by him and make Myself real to him.]  Judas, not Iscariot, asked Him, Lord, how is it that You will reveal Yourself [make Yourself real] to us and not to the world? Jesus answered, If a person [really] loves Me, he will keep My word [obey My teaching]; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home (abode, special dwelling place) with him.

Luke 18:29-30  (MSG)

“Yes,” said Jesus, “and you won’t regret it. No one who has sacrificed home, spouse, brothers and sisters, parents, children—whatever—will lose out. It will all come back multiplied many times over in your lifetime. And then the bonus of eternal life!”

Deuteronomy 8:18  (AMP)

But you shall [earnestly] remember the Lord your God, for it is He Who gives you power to get wealth, that He may establish His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day.

Mark 11:21-23  (MSG)

In the morning, walking along the road, they saw the fig tree, shriveled to a dry stick. Peter, remembering what had happened the previous day, said to him, “Rabbi, look—the fig tree you cursed is shriveled up!”  Jesus was matter-of-fact: “Embrace this God-life. Really embrace it, and nothing will be too much for you. This mountain, for instance: Just say, ‘Go jump in the lake’—no shuffling or shilly-shallying—and it’s as good as done. That’s why I urge you to pray for absolutely everything, ranging from small to large. Include everything as you embrace this God-life, and you’ll get God’s everything. And when you assume the posture of prayer, remember that it’s not all asking. If you have anything against someone, forgive—only then will your heavenly Father be inclined to also wipe your slate clean of sins.”

Psalm 69:16-20  (MSG)

Now answer me, God, because you love me; Let me see your great mercy full-face.
Don’t look the other way; your servant can’t take it. I’m in trouble. Answer right now!  Come close, God; get me out of here. Rescue me from this deathtrap. You know how they kick me around— Pin on me the donkey’s ears, the dunce’s cap. I’m broken by their taunts, Flat on my face, reduced to a nothing.  I looked in vain for one friendly face. Not one.   I couldn’t find one shoulder to cry on

Ezekiel 37:5,6,10, 26-28

Thus says the Lord God to these bones: Behold, I will cause breath and spirit to enter you, and you shall live; And I will lay sinews upon you and bring up flesh upon you and cover you with skin, and I will put breath and spirit in you, and you [dry bones] shall live; and you shall know, understand, and realize that I am the Lord [the Sovereign Ruler, Who calls forth loyalty and obedient service]. So I prophesied as He commanded me, and the breath and spirit came into [the bones], and they lived and stood up upon their feet, an exceedingly great host. I will make a covenant of peace with them; it shall be an everlasting covenant with them, and I will give blessings to them and multiply them and will set My sanctuary in the midst of them forevermore. My tabernacle or dwelling place also shall be with them; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. Then the nations shall know, understand, and realize that I the Lord do set apart and consecrate Israel for holy use, when My sanctuary shall be in their midst forevermore.

Psalm 86:11  (MSG)

Train me, God, to walk straight; then I’ll follow your true path. Put me together, one heart and mind; then, undivided, I’ll worship in joyful fear. From the bottom of my heart I thank you, dear Lord; I’ve never kept secret what you’re up to. You’ve always been great toward me—what love!  You snatched me from the brink of disaster!  God, these bullies have reared their heads!  A gang of thugs is after me— and they don’t care a thing about you. But you, O God, are both tender and kind, not easily angered, immense in love, you never, never quit. So look me in the eye and show kindness, give your servant the strength to go on, save your dear, dear child! Make a show of how much you love me so the bullies who hate me will stand there slack-jawed, As you, God, gently and powerfully put me back on my feet.

Psalm 147:2-6  (MSG)

God’s the one who rebuilds Jerusalem, who regathers Israel’s scattered exiles. He heals the heartbroken and bandages their wounds. He counts the stars and assigns each a name. Our Lord is great, with limitless strength; we’ll never comprehend what he knows and does. God puts the fallen on their feet again and pushes the wicked into the ditch.

Proverbs 15:13  (AMP)

A glad heart makes a cheerful countenance, but by sorrow of heart the spirit is broken.

Proverbs 17:22  (AMP)

A happy heart is good medicine and a cheerful mind works healing, but a broken spirit dries up the bones.

Proverbs 18:14  (AMP)

The strong spirit of a man sustains him in bodily pain or trouble, but a weak and broken spirit who can raise up or bear?

Proverbs 13:22  (MSG)

A good life gets passed on to the grandchildren; ill-gotten wealth ends up with good people. I Declare that I get to Live in God’s favor and love today! I know today is going to be a great day because  I am greatly blessed, highly favored and deeply loved by my Savior, and experience more and more of His abundant grace!  I Declare this today: “Because of Jesus’ finished work, God gives me what Christ deserves, not what I deserve. I’m expecting good things to happen to me this week because God loves me! He has great plans for me!”
