MORNINGTIME 2150
 
And he set the priests in their charges, (to keep watch), and encouraged them to the service of the house of the Lord, 2 Chronicles 35:2. When you deeply Love your husband or wife, most anything they ask for is not a chore or problem to do. Just the opposite, it's a good thing to willingly and desirously do what was requested, BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT LOVE DOES. It goes the same way with the Lord with anything He wants. To those who Love Him, anything He asks is a Joy to do. BUT, there are times when even the simplest request from the Lord is hard to do. What He's asking for is not hard to do, it's just set aside for a while while we do the stuff WE want to do. This is the time we need to encourage ourselves, find those Faith Promises, and ask the Lord to renew the Joy of Service to Him. This usually happens when we catch ourselves starting to drift away from the Lord. It takes hard work to get back in sync with the Lord and His Will, but it can be done. This is not talking about "name it and claim it", it IS talking about true Repentance and Anguish of Heart for drifting away from the Lord. Yes, the Holy Spirit will show you you're drifting away from the Lord, BUT YOU MUST MAKE UP YOUR MIND TO STOP DRIFTING AND START MOVING BACK TO THE LORD. To stop drifting is to look at the Lord, see all the Promises He has for us, AND DECIDE TO START MOVING BACK TO HIM. Again, yes He will help, but your decision to come back is because you Encouraged yourself in the Lord AND DID SOMETHING ABOUT IT. You didn't only say it and forget about it, you actually decided to DO something about it. You encouraged yourself, AND DID SOMETHING ABOUT IT. Most people don't do what they should, they only think about it, die, and go to Hell. The Holy Spirit puts flight to your Encourage Yourself, and shows you how to come back. To Encourage Yourself AND walk BACK to Christ with the Holy Spirit's Guidance is to come back to the Fold and to, Be Blessed.
