Encouragement from Brothers and Sisters

Well the last few weeks have been incredibly hard. They have made me doubt and made me fear the unknown. Through the encouragement of believers though, I have hung in, stood up and fought back against these doubts.

Over the past few weeks I’ve been dealing with a financial situation. A situation that has brought me to my knees, a financial situation that is annoying and standing in the way of a promise. It has been incredibly frustrating, wondering if I had even heard the Lord right with regarding these next steps.

It is times like these when the body of Christ is so important. They pull us out of our own doubts and fears and share with us words of advice, encouragement, victory. They remind us of the past victories, the things that happened before all this mess. They bring to mind what we used to say. They are the voice of God in our lives when all goes haywire. They are truly people who will pray with us, weep, mourn, rejoice, battle.

“Rejoice with those who rejoice; weep with those who weep.” (Romans 12:15)

Over the last few years, the body of Christ has been there for me. They have wept and seen me in my darkest hours. They have prayed and battled for me. Then they rejoiced and celebrated when I was rescued from death and given new life. They have walked side by side with me, as the Lord has, encouraging, building me up, teaching me. They were there in Nicaragua when I received this promise from God about coming into His ministry. They have seen my miraculous journey and they have been there for every part. I would not be here right now, but by the power of Christ and the encouragement of fellow brothers and sisters. Also these believers on google plus have been a great encouragement as well.

I need this constant encouragement. I am weak but in Christ I am strong. I need the constant reminder daily of what Christ has done and the promise that He is bringing me into. I would appreciate any encouraging words if anyone has anything for me. Please keep me in your prayers as I battle for this promise.

I believe in this promise Lord, help my unbelief.

Blessings,
Joseph.
