Why You Need To Talk To Yourself

Thursday, January 23, 2020

In 1 Samuel 30, the Bible gives the account of how David faced one of the lowest points in his life. He returned with his men to their home base only to find the city burned down and their wives and children taken captive. There was weeping, grieving, confusion, and even anger against David himself. The Bible records that he did something that most believers don’t know how to do or never end up doing. It says “David encouraged himself in the Lord his God.” The Hebrew word here is ‘hazak’ which here can be translated as, “strengthened himself.” And what happened? David rose up and turned calamity into victory. But the turning point was when he encouraged himself. Maybe you’ve been discouraged, down, and paralyzed in your walk. You need to learn David’s secret. Learn how to encourage yourself - with God’s word, God’s love, God’s calling, and with God’s encouragement. And this very thing can transform your life – but it all begins when you minister encouragement – to yourself!
