Do you need to be encouraged today? If so, you are not alone; actually, you are in good company. Even Jesus needed to be encouraged. He regularly turned to the Father in prayer and drew strength from His relationship with the Father and the Spirit. He retreated from the crowds to spend time with His disciples and friends. He not only spent time encouraging His disciples, He sought encouragement from them. Where do you turn to be encouraged?
From this time many of his disciples turned back and no longer followed him. “You do not want to leave too, do you?” Jesus asked the Twelve.—John 6:66-67
Prayer: God, leading like Jesus is sometimes very challenging. Thank You for opening the door to intimate relationship with You and others so that I can be renewed and encouraged when I am weary, discouraged, or confused. Lead me and encourage me today so that I can accomplish what You have given me to do. In Jesus’ name I pray, amen.
