THE MESSAGE

A WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT TO GOD’S CHILDREN

1.DO NOT LOSE YOU FAITH AND CONFIDENCE
Hebrews 10;35 , Luke 8;49-50 ,Matthew 14; 29-30 ,Romans 4 ;19-21
The word of God tells us not to lose our confidence which has great reward.Our spiritual victory depends on our faith.Peter walked on the water as long as he looked to Jesus and had faith in him. But he began to drown as soon as he lost his faith.He was filled with fear
because he started looking at the storm and the waves. In our own lives we can walk in victory as long as we are firm in our faith in God’s goodness and faithfulness. But we will drown in our problems and difficulties if we lose our faith and begin to doubt and fear.

2.DO NOT BE WEARY IN DOING GOOD
Galatians 6;9 ,Acts 10;1-4, Daniel 10;12-14 , Matthew 14;13-14
The word of tells us not to become weary in doing good for in due time we shall reap our reward.Sometimes difficulties and trials makes us feel like quitting .We feel it is not worth suffering so much.We feel that we may not have got the results we expected.We may feel like
stopping the good work that we are doing.But God says do not stop the good work you are doing.Cornelius kept on praying and doing good even though he did not know the true God.But God rewarded him and revealed the truth to him.Daniel kept on praying until the answer came.He did
not stop praying when the devil prevented his answer by 21 days.Jesus continued to heal the sick even after hearing the shocking news of the murder of his cousin John the Baptist.When the devil has not become weary in doing evil ,surely God’s children should not become weary in doing good. So keep on doingthe good work and you will be rewarded.

3.DO NOT BE HASTY IN DECIDING YOUR DESTINY
John 15;16 , I Kings 19;4,7 ,John 21;3,17 ,Jonah 4;9-11
The word of God tells us that we are chosen by God and ordained to bear fruit.Jesus is the author and finisher of our faith.Sometimes due to discouragement we feel like finishing our race.
Elijah once felt that way. He wanted to die.But God told him that he still had a long way to go.Peter went back to fishing and but God restored him because He still had a lot of work for Peter to do.Even in our lives let us not be hasty in deciding our destiny .Let God ’s perfect will be completed in our lives.

4.DO NOT FEEL FORSAKEN AND WEAKENED
Isaiah 40 ;27-31 , Isaiah 49;14-16, Genesis 16;13 , Psalms 115;12
Luke 5; 4-5
The word of God tells us that God is always mindful of us and will never forsake us. He promises strength when we are weak and weary.However sometimes we feel that we are forgotten and forsaken.Especially when our difficulties are
prolonged and our strength grows weak.But it is precisely in these moments that we must beleive in God ’s faithfulness.He has promised to renew our strength like the eagles.When old feathers fall away the eagle waits till new feathers grow on it .Then it begins to fly once again. Even in our lives sometimes the old feathers which had helped us fly in the past begin to fall away.However let us not panic but wait till God gives us new

Thank you, this was beautiful to bring the heart of understanding to wait on God; to endure and not lose hope. As these trials of this world can be severe; especially with what is going on around the world today. We simply desire to encourage the church and give them the hope that God has promised all his believing saints. Keep up the wonderful work. Pastor Mary
