ENCOURAGEMENT

ENCOURAGEMENT FROM ABOVE
TEXT: I KINGS 19: 1-8

WHEN YOU NEED ENCOURAGEMENT?

  1. AFTER A MAJOR BREAKTHROUGH

1 Kings 19:1 Ahab told Jezebel all that Elijah had done, and how he had killed all the prophets with the sword.

The new job, the new baby, the new promotion is not an end in itself. If it is of God – the devil will attempt to attack it by discouraging you.

  1. Every stranger that want to discourage me because I am making progress – arrest them.
    2. For everything in my life that glorifies your name- encourage me to do more!
    3. I, ( insert name) will not be stranded! I will not be stagnant!
    4. Every ear that hears of my exploits, stir their hearts to encourage and support me to do more!
    5. As the Lord lives, I will not be discussed in the past tense!
    6. Every discouragement that is attempting to kill my achievements, lose your hold in Jesus name!
  2. WHEN YOU ARE THREATENED OR SCARED

1Ki 19:2 Then Jezebel sent a messenger to Elijah, saying, “So may the gods do to me and more also, if I do not make your life as the life of one of them by this time tomorrow.”
1Ki 19:3 Then he was afraid

  1. Every threat that is released because you are succeeding will fail! It will not prosper in Jesus name!
    OPPOSITE OF FEAR IS LOVE, POWER AND SOUND MIND!

2Ti 1:7 God’s Spirit doesn’t make cowards out of us. The Spirit gives us power, love, and self-control.

  1. Father, encourage me with love! Saturate me with love!
    8. In every area of my life that I have been abandoned – send me love to encourage me!
    9. My Father in Heaven is not a coward, I reject the spirit of Cowardice.
    10. Let the laws of life around me rise up to encourage me with Power.
    11. In the midst of fear, scaremongering and intimidation – GIVE ME POWER AND SELF CONTROL to do that which is right!
    12. I reject all forms of intimidation! I refuse to bow to failure and waste!
  2. WHEN YOU HAVE TO RUN OR FLEE!

1Ki 19:3 Then he was afraid, and he arose and ran for his life and came to Beersheba, which belongs to Judah, and left his servant there.

Pro 28:1 The wicked flee when no one pursues, but the righteous are bold as a lion.

  1. Release power to stand boldly and fight
    14. I have run enough! From now I receive power to stand my ground!
    15. Encourage me with rest and give me rest
    16. The event that will happen in my life that will stabilize me – encourage me with it this month!

Jos 7:11 Israel has sinned! They have broken the agreement with me that I ordered them to keep. They have taken some of the things condemned to destruction. They stole them, lied about it, and put them with their own things. 
Jos 7:12 This is why the Israelites cannot stand against their enemies. They retreat from them because they themselves have now been condemned to destruction! I will not stay with you any longer unless you destroy the things you were ordered not to take!

  1. Father, Let me not become an agent of discouragement!
    18. Every disobedience and sin that has destroyed my strength – have mercy on me
  2. WHEN YOUR BATTERY, ENERGY LEVEL IS LOW AND DEPRESSED – JUST TIRED!

1Ki 19:4 then walked another whole day into the desert. Finally, he came to a large bush and sat down in its shade. He begged the LORD, “I’ve had enough. Just let me die! I’m no better off than my ancestors.”

  1. Every event that will lead me to give up – Encourage me and reverse it.
    20. In every area of my life that I am tired – physical, emotional and spiritual – encourage me!

Job 22:29 When men are cast down, then thou shalt say, There is lifting up; and he shall save the humble person.

  1. I decree and announce concerning you ( insert name) – you are lifted!

1Sa 17:29 And David said, What have I now done? Is there not a cause? 
1Sa 17:30 And he turned from him toward another, and spake after the same manner: and the people answered him again after the former manner.

  1. Everyone that is being used to kill my dreams, encourage me by exposing them!
    23. From all agents of discouragement, I turn!
    24. Wherever “another encourager” is – find me this month!
  2. WHEN YOU DO NOT MEASURE UP OR COMPARE

1Ki 19:4 But he himself went a day’s journey into the wilderness, and came and sat down under a juniper tree: and he requested for himself that he might die; and said, It is enough; now, O LORD, TAKE AWAY MY LIFE; FOR I AM NOT BETTER THAN MY FATHERS.

  1. Father, encourage me so I can see your power at work in my life!
    26. Every frustration that makes a man utter “, TAKE AWAY MY LIFE” – I TERMINATE YOU!
    27. Every frustration that makes a man utter “, FOR I AM NOT BETTER ” – I TERMINATE YOU!
    28. I DECREE CONCERNING YOU, (insert name) – YOU WILL BE BETTER AND YOU WILL MAKE PROGRESS
  2. LONELY

1Ki 19:5 And as he lay and slept under a juniper tree, behold, then an angel touched him,

29.Every stranger around me that is increasing my loneliness, deliver me!
30. Father, I am grateful for people around me that has stayed with me. Please encourage and reward them.
31. Deliver me permanently from the bondage of loneliness.
32. As the Lord lives, from today, I will never walk alone!

FOR WE HAVE PRAYED IN JESUS NAME.
