Encouraged by Elijah

Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. Romans 12:11

The life we lead as Believers is not easy. There are many many things that can discourage us. We have to contend with a corrupt culture, dishonest people, a belligerent media, and people who are only concerned about what happens to them. Our faith is being attacked from all sides. Everyday Christians, the Bible, God, Jesus Christ and our beliefs are mocked and ridiculed. Of course it’s discouraging; it’s what the Enemy does well.

But as I’ve written before and I’ll write again, you are not alone on this journey. Just like there were 7000 in Israel in Elijah’s time when he thought he was alone, so there are millions around you who believe like you do – and those who get discouraged like you do. Restoring the zeal for the Lord in your life comes by taking the smaller steps of daily refreshment and encouragement.

Pick up the phone today and call someone you think might need some encouragement. You’ll be very glad you did.
