Encouragement is a gift from God. If it is your gift then use it and encourage others as much as you can. There are always people in need of encouragement. Our encouraging words can lift others up. Discouragement spreads quickly. It can cause us to doubt the power and ability of God’s hand working through us. It can cause us to doubt the Word of God and cause us to lose our sense of purpose. Negative words have a negative effect on people.
We need to speak positive words of faith. The words we speak have power to put down or to build someone up– and ourselves as well! Positive words of faith will encourage, support, strengthen and inspire us to believe in what God has placed within us.
