A Podcast About Encouragement
Building One Another
Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing. I Thessalonians 5:11
Lord, Please Teach Me What to Say!
Reading through the words of consolation and desolation the prophet Isaiah speaks to Israel, there are many marvelous sentences that seem to jump off the page!
For example, “The Sovereign Lord has given me a well-instructed tongue to know the word that sustains the weary,” Isaiah 50:4
Wow! How wonderful to know there is a word – words – that sustain the weary. It reminds me of the wonderful Job 4:4, “Your words put people on their feet!.”
Do your words lift people, put steel in their backbones, love in their hearts and hope in their heads? Do you know words, use words, that sustain the weary. That is at the core of building one another.
Isaiah is telling us that the Lord gave him a “well-instructed” tongue. In other words, Isaiah learned the words that lift hearts and sustain the weary!
Ask the Lord who loves you to, “Please teach me what to say,” and open your ears, so that you may become aware of, and use, the words that will put people on their feet with hope in their hearts!
