Encourage Yourself in The LORD
Something happened to me a little while ago, and I’m led to believe I’m supposed to share it now.
Let me say this first. The Spirit is going to do some things at anytime in your life in these days, and you’ll need to be ready to respond to it.
We’ve talked about going deeper in The Spirit; learning, knowing and experiencing things that are different. You’re going to need help, wherever you can get it. It just may not come in the direction it may have before.
I wasn’t going to try to write. It takes a lot to do that; at least for me and our bodies can be weak and tired. But there are yet those times.
When you gotta move; you gotta move…. It seems I was led to go to some videos I made some years ago and listen to one. It may sound a bit odd to some, but I get a blessing out of listening to this man play and sing.
Yes see, I know where God has brought him from… And I know how many times down through the years, that God has anointed him and used him to bless His people. I never thought he’d make it this far.
It was awesome to me how this brother could do this; I felt tTe Spirit on him so strong. I knew he had not sung or played in many years when this video was made.
Somewhere along the way toward the end, The Holy Ghost fell all over me. I began to weep with one of those sweet soul washings, and I began to speak in other tongues.
I had myself a time. Oh, you don’t know how I needed that. So much has come against us in these past few days. We face a lot of things, even at home.
If this sounds a bit strange, let’s see if we can talk it out. What if God had used you to preach a message. It was definitely anointed of The Holy Ghost, He Spoke through you to His People and there was a real move.
The Spirit fell on those hearing it and they responded. And somebody recorded it. It may be then or even years later, you listen to it yourself.
Are you not going to feel the same power, the same anointing everybody else was feeling; see, the Spirit is forever alive.
People are being blessed, they’re weeping or shouting and, what are you going to do. Just sit there? Like you don’t feel anything. You will respond to the presence of The Holy Ghost.
I’m thinking of an elder minister I yet love and honor. I’m also thinking of older singers who had incredible voices and sung under the anointing and blessed God and His People.
I know something some aren’t aware of. You can still sing; almost as good as you did. How do I know that? Because I can…. God has preserved our talent, our voices, our ministries; for this time.
Some might say, this man has a lot of pride. I pray not, and I seek God every day that it’s not so. You know, there are some things called thorns, that help keep someone humble and to remind them of how they are on their own.
After what’s come down lately and the plans the Spirit is exhibiting even now, I don’t think there’s going to be a lot of big-heads around.
The Fear of The LORD will return to The Church, to His People. It’s been said here; or, the help and work we cry for, will wait.
Get help, get encouragement wherever you can. Some of us are going to have to remember how to dance before The LORD, right by ourselves.
Drinking your coffee, sitting on the back porch. Set your cup down. Begin praising The LORD, weeping and even speaking in tongues. In the kitchen, in the shower; it doesn’t matter anymore.
People might have been passing by this window a while ago and heard me; ain’t no telling what I sounded like. I can’t help it; I needed a touch and nobody else was going to get it for me.
Encourage yourself. Let it happen.

This brought tears to my eyes.
Our LORD spoke mightily through you. Thank you for being obedient to His Word. Personally, it’s just what the LORD knew I needed.
Bless His Holy Name!
