Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 06/20/10

June 21, 2010

This week’s scripture is from Psalms:

“I will praise you forever for what you have done;
       in your name I will hope, for your name is good.
       I will praise you in the presence of your saints.”      
(Psalms 52:9)

Praise God, Praise God. In the midst of life’s ongoing trials and troubles it can be difficult to remember to stop and praise our Lord for all He has done for us. It is so easy to be distracted by the difficulties we are facing and struggling against that we lose our focus on the One who is our strength and our ever-present help in times of trouble. Remember to call on Him and praise Him; lift up your voice and praise the Lord for He is good and all He does is good. Pray, praise, sing and let His grace and mercy wash over you.  

May the Lord fill your heart with hope and joy as you raise your voice to praise Him.

This week’s scriptures come from Psalms:

“Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for He is good!
         For His mercy endures forever.”           
(Psalms 118:29)

“Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good;
         Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!”  
(Psalms 34:8)

God is good; God is good; God is so good! Let us never forget the goodness of God. He blesses us and sheds His mercy and grace upon us every day in every circumstance. Let us remember to call on His name, for we can always trust in Him who loves us and gave His Son for us. Let us give thanks to the Lord and throw ourselves upon His mercy and goodness, for He cares for us and means to bless us. How good is God that His mercy and love are never-ending.

May the Lord bless you with His mercy and goodness each and every day as you call upon Him.

This week’s scriptures are from Psalms and 1 Corinthians:

“Behold, how good and how pleasant it is
         For brethren to dwell together in unity!”   (
Psalm 133:1)

“…Whenever you come together, each of you has a psalm, has a teaching, has a tongue, has a revelation, has an interpretation. Let all things be done for edification.”   (1 Cor. 14:26) 

How beautiful it is and how blessed we are when brothers and sisters in Christ gather together in the unity of the Holy Spirit to worship our Lord and give Him praise. How we also bless and strengthen each other by bringing and sharing what God has given us to uplift and enlighten each other through the gifts of the Holy Spirit. How wonderfully the goodness and blessings of God are richly poured out, one to another.

May the Lord bless you to be united in the Holy Spirit with your brothers and sisters in Christ.
