Encourage Yourself

“Let no foul or polluting language, nor evil word nor unwholesome or worthless talk [ever] come out of your mouth, but only such [speech] as is good and beneficial to the spiritual progress of others, as is fitting to the need and the occasion, that it may be a blessing and give grace (God’s favor) to those who hear it.” Ephesians 4:29, Amplified

Have you ever called yourself “stupid”, “slow”, “crazy”, or any other destructive words? Surely those words didn’t make you feel any better about yourself. Many of us understand that we aren’t to destroy others with our words, but we must not destroy ourselves either. Speak these words over yourself: I am a treasure! I will make it! I am God’s masterpiece! I am an overcomer through Jesus! I am God’s daughter! He has a plan for my life and a bright future! I am so loved by God! I am fearfully and wonderfully made! Words like these minister life to your soul.

When everyone is telling you what you can’t do and who you are not, stand and speak out of your mouth that you can and you will. Begin to encourage yourself in the Lord. Prophesy to yourself. Comfort your heart with your own words. Minister life to yourself, and you will find that the same words you use to build up yourself will be the very same words you minister to those around you.

Prayer: Father, thank you for encouraging me. No matter what others think or say, I say what You say. I am Your daughter and You are my Father. As you build me up, help me to build up others. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Fear and doubt I know are tools Satan loves to use, but what starts out as small grows and before I know it my fears and doubts are so large I’m completely distracted from the truths I know in Jesus.
