A Lifeline from God

Just imagine with me today, that there are people all around you, hiding behind the face they put on, who in point of fact desperately need just a bit of encouragement. Imagine.

I recently had the occasion to send out an SMS to a bunch of Christianityworks’ ministry friends in Australia. This is what it said: As we head towards the weekend, I just felt a nudge in my spirit to ask you, who does God want you to reach out to with a kind word of encouragement over these next couple of days? What a joy it is to share His love! Bless ya heaps, Berni

To which many people replied, but this SMS from Diane really stood out, really touched my heart:

Berni, I have been crushed in my spirit for quite some time and then you have just thrown me a lifeline by texting that God had nudged you to get in touch with me to encourage someone, as I thought God had abandoned me! Thank you very Much. Diane.

Now, when I sent that message, I never imagined for a moment that it would be a lifeline to anyone … after all, I was asking them to encourage someone else. But there you go; God had a different plan. This woman was crushed in her spirit, and God used that simple little message to speak to her in a way that I’d never intended.

1 Thessalonians 5:11 So encourage each other and help each other grow stronger in faith, just as you are already doing.

When you reach out with a word of encouragement, honestly, you have no idea how powerfully God might use that touch a life with His love. Your word of encouragement today, could well be someone’s lifeline from God.

That’s His Word. Fresh … for you … today.
