Speaking of Life 4049 | Words of Encouragement

A simple sentence can crush someone’s dreams or it can inspire someone to be a better person for a lifetime. Words are powerful. God inspired Paul to write to the struggling early churches to encourage them that they are seen and loved. Has God empowered you recently to encourage someone? May we always carry God’s love in whatever we do so others may know who he is through our actions and our words.

Speaking of Life 4048 | Know Who You’re Talking With

Greg shares the time he met someone and mistakenly identified him as someone else. It is important to know who you’re talking to. This same lesson can be applied to prayer. How well do we know our loving Father? The Book of Psalms is a beautiful collection of praise and prayers giving a small glimpse of how and who God is. God invites us to know more about him. He knows who we truly are and what is in our hearts. Get to know God today and have a conversation with him.

Speaking of Life 4045 | Our Inadequacy

We can easily feel down or discouraged when we try our best to plan something and it doesn’t go the way we wanted it to or not a lot of people have shown interest. Timothy had a similar feeling when he thought he was too young to work with the mature elders of the church. Paul encourages Timothy that through the Spirit we are empowered to minister with Christ. God is not looking for perfection but for our participation. In Christ, we already have every good and perfect thing we need.
