1 Samuel 30:6. “And David encouraged himself in the Lord……..”
There are going to be times in your life when you are going to have to encourage yourself. Life has many valley and mountain experiences.
During a valley experience I encouraged myself by reading through the book of Psalms via a daily devotional app by You Version. I can’t tell you what that daily reading did for me. I would pray and ask God to speak to me through a verse, something I would need for the day and the verse highlighted really ministered to me for that day.
I have found ways to encourage myself daily that work for me, a few of them are:
* I declare encouraging scriptures over myself.
* I thank God and express my gratitude for the the things I have and for the things around me.
* I declare God’s Word into my future regarding the things I would like to see.
David had to encourage himself because his enemies had destroyed the families and property of his army and his army turned against him. I imagined David worshiped, prayed and danced before the Lord. This would have shifted his consciousness from his current surroundings to the fullness of who he was in God. The one who delivered him from the lion and the bear would see him through this situation.
