1 Peter 5:12 (AMP) By Silvanus, a true (loyal, consistent, incorruptible) brother, as I consider him, I have written briefly to you, to counsel and urge and stimulate [you] and to declare [to you] that this is the true [account of the] grace (the undeserved favor) of God. Be steadfast and persevere in it.

Life can be difficult. There are situations that make a person want to quit, give up on God, or kill themselves. One of the greatest things we can do as believers is encourage someone else.

The entire book of First Peter was to stimulate or encourage someone else. We don’t have to send a letter like Peter (unless God instructs us to), but we can stimulate others through text messages, instant messages, or a post. When we’ve heard or read something that encourages us, it’s only right to encourage someone else.

As God prompts us, we can call someone we haven’t spoken to in a while and speak an encouraging word to them. When a person is at their lowest, and we call or text an encouraging word to them out the blue, these are the type of things that show them God’s listening and He cares. We truly become vessels for God.

Let God lead you on who you should encourage. It will glorify God, be a blessing to others, and fulfill purpose.
