1 Samuel 30:6 And David was greatly distressed; for the people spoke of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and for his daughters: but David encouraged himself in the LORD his God.

There will be times when no one is around to minster to us regarding the situations we’re facing. No one will be available for a pep talk. No one will be there when we’re awakened by the issues of life in the middle of the night. No one will understand the stress we’re facing. That’s when we have to minister to ourselves.

We have to tell ourselves, it will get better. We have to tell ourselves, God is working out everything for our good. We have to tell ourselves, “don’t give up.” That’s why it’s so important to consistently read the Word so that when we face situations, the truth in God’s Word can be recalled and spoken over ourselves.

We may have to minister to ourselves every 5 minutes, but through our ministry, we defeat the attacks of the enemy who’s throwing thoughts of doubt in our minds and we’re creating a future we want to live in.

Don’t wait until Sunday morning to get a Word from God from the pulpit. Let’s speak the Word over our own lives now.
