ENCOURAGING ONE ANOTHER, WOMEN OF FAITH, STUDY GUIDE SERIES




God’s Word will stand forever. It is more than an Old or New Testament compiled into sixty – six books that constitute a divine library. It is a source of guidance, strength, encouragement, and comfort, available every day of our lives.

ENCOURAGING ONE ANOTHER
WOMEN OF FAITH STUDY GUIDE SERIES


Although I am not yet finished with the study I was on before Christmas, I felt I needed this one right now. I’d picked the book up last fall when we went to visit the ‘NewlyWeds’ and wound up spending the afternoon in a wonderful used book store.

I was familiar with the Women of Faith as I’d found them on the internet one day and knew this would be a great little study to do.

THE WORD ENCOURAGES

God has surrounded us with the means to be encourage…little things throughout our day to lift our hearts. Unless we are tapping in to God’s Word on a daily basis, we are depriving ourselves unnecessarily .It will stick with you no matter how steep the trail may get.

Psalm 119 is an amazing chapter in the Bible. Nearly every verse sings the praises of God. In verse 28 we see that the Word will make us STRONG again.

Encouragement is there if we know how to find it. John says that the Bibles we hold in our hands were written so that we may believe and have life through His name.
John 20:30 and 1 John 5-13

Saint Paul echos John in Romans 15:4. He says the Scriptures were written to give us patience and encouragement, so that we may have hope. He told Timothy to read the scriptures to the people so that it may strengthen them 1 Timothy 4:13

Whether we are reading it ourselves or sitting under good solid preaching, God’s Word can teach us all things pertaining to life and godliness. 2 Peter1:3

Job 6:24 tells us to ask the Lord ‘to show” us where we’ve have been wrong.



Find the comfort and guidance you need from God’s Words of direction for that disturbing circumstance in your life. His words are there and they are written just for you.
