But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called “Today,” so that none of you may be hardened by sin’s deceitfulness. - Hebrews 3:13
It's so easy to get stuck in a rut or fall and not want to get back up. I'm sure you've experienced this through stress, disappointments, hopelessness, maybe sin or feeling far from God, you can fill in the blank. God knew we would struggle and that is why He spoke to us in this very verse… "encourage one another daily." Because our struggles are daily He sent us His Word to lift us up that we may follow Him even in the difficult times. The truth is, as we encourage others, we will be encouraged as well.
So let’s take "today" and check in with a friend or family member. Share Scripture as the Holy Spirit leads you. Share your encouragement via email, text, phone call or a visit. Let’s be intentional about this. Why? … “so that none of you may be hardened by sin’s deceitfulness." A few weekends ago I felt tired and defeated. I became sick and by the end of the week felt weak and totally unmotivated. But devotionals I received from my sweet younger sister kept me going. The following week I found a whole new mission, goal and purpose as I prepared for my prayer groups. So God has commanded us to take action, so let's get started!
Have a blessed day as you encourage someone "today"!
In His Great Love,
