Encourage Yourself In The Lord: 5 Reasons Not To

You have probably heard people saying you need to encourage yourself in the Lord. It’s great advice. After all, the man after God’s heart, David once strengthened himself in the Lord (1 Samuel 30:6).

While David fought the wars for his ancestors’ enemies, the Amalekites ambushed Ziklag. David came back from war and found his city reduced to a pile of ashes. His two wives had been taken captive and his wealth plundered.

David cried. His mighty men cried. They all cried until they could cry no more. But David encouraged himself in the Lord and sought the face of the Lord.

If you have been going through pain and suffering, you’re probably familiar with this story. Many well-meaning Christians reminded you of Ziklag. They told you how much you need to strengthen yourself in the Lord.
