The Great Exchange

The Empowerment of Encouragement

Pt. 2, The Great Exchange

 

 

But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:31 

 

And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching. Hebrews 10:24-25 

 

Isaiah 61:3 To console those who mourn in Zion,

To give them beauty for ashes,

The oil of joy for mourning,

The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness;

That they may be called trees of righteousness,

The planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.”

1 John 2:2 And He Himself is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the whole world.

 

Isaiah 61:3 To console those who mourn in Zion,

To give them beauty for ashes,

The oil of joy for mourning,

The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness;

That they may be called trees of righteousness,

The planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.”

 

Isaiah 40:31 but those who hope in the LORD will renew [exchange] their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. 

 

How can a command make a difference? High expectations triggers confidence and confidence triggers great capability, 

 

Exchange of Strength is a kingdom principle 

Joshua 1:9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.” 

 

Proverbs 3:5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; 6 in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. 

 

Like overwriting a file on the computer. I erased a file and started looking it like I would find it. It was gone. The sooner I accepted, the sooner I could work on the replacement. Two two hours to render and export on a powerful computer. That would have taken a couple of days ten years ago.

You reap what you sow. You receive what you give 

2 Corinthians 1:3-4 NIV 3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, 4 who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. 

 

John 14:27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid 

 

“Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved.” – Hellen Keller 

 

“If the wind will not serve, take to the oars. “ – Latin Proverb 

 

“If you have made mistakes, there is always another chance for you.You may have a fresh start any moment you choose, for this thing we call ‘failure’ is not the falling down, but the staying down.“ – Mary Pickford
