MONDAY MORNING ENCOURAGEMENT
(16 July 2018)

We all need encouragement from time to time. And what better time to encourage you than on a Monday morning!

So, without further ado, here are some verses from Scripture to encourage you and lift up your spirit.

"
For God loved the world so much that He gave His one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life. God sent His Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through Him" (John 3:16-17).

"
I have learned the secret of living in every situation... For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength" (Philippians 4:12b-13).

"
And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from His glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus" (Philippians 4:19).

"
Jesus looked at them intently and said, 'Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But with God everything is possible'" (Matthew 19:26).

"
Anything is possible if a person believes" (Mark 9:23b).

"
I tell you the truth, anyone who believes in Me will do the same works I have done, and even greater works, because I am going to be with the Father. You can ask for anything in My Name, and I will do it, so that the Son can bring glory to the Father. Yes, ask Me for anything in My Name, and I will do it!" (John 14:12-14).

"
Yet it was our weaknesses He carried; it was our sorrows that weighed Him down. And we thought His troubles were a punishment from God, a punishment for His own sins! But He was pierced for our rebellion, crushed for our sins. He was beaten so we could be whole. He was whipped so we could be healed" (Isaiah 53:4-5).

"
Don't worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank Him for all He has done. Then you will experience God's peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus" (Philippians 4:6-7).

"
The LORD is my shepherd; I have all that I need. He lets me rest in green meadows; He leads me beside peaceful streams. He renews my strength. He guides me along right paths, bringing honour to His Name. Even when I walk through the darkest valley, I will not be afraid, for You are close beside me. Your rod and Your staff protect and comfort me. You prepare a feast for me in the presence of my enemies. You honour me by anointing my head with oil. My cup overflows with blessings. Surely Your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me all the days of my life, and I will live in the house of the LORD forever" (Psalm 23:1-6).

"
Those who live in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
This I declare about the LORD: He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; He is my God, and I trust Him...
The LORD says, 'I will rescue those who love Me. I will protect those who trust in My Name.
When they call on Me, I will answer; I will be with them in trouble. I will rescue and honour them.
I will reward them with a long life and give them My salvation'
" (Psalm 91:1-2;14-16).

"
This is the message we heard from Jesus and now declare to you: God is light, and there is no darkness in Him at all" (1 John 1:5).

"
If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and He will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking" (James 1:5).

"
Whatever is good and perfect comes down to us from God our Father, who created all the lights in the heavens. He never changes or casts a shifting shadow. He chose to give birth to us by giving us His true word. And we, out of all creation, became His prized possession" (James 1:17-18).

"
But if we confess our sins to Him, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness" (1 John 1:9).

"
For no matter how many promises God has made, they are "Yes" in Christ. And so through Him the "Amen" is spoken by us to the glory of God" (2 Corinthians 1:20).

I trust these words from the Word of God encouraged and lifted you up!
