"O give thanks unto the Lord; call upon his name: make known his deeds among the people. Sing unto him, sing psalms unto him: talk ye of all his wondrous works. Glory ye in his holy name: let the heart of them rejoice that seek the Lord. Seek the Lord, and his strength: seek his face evermore. Remember his marvellous works that he hath done; his wonders, and the judgments of his mouth."
When satan hurls his fiery darts into your heart, run as fast as you can to Jesus. There are people who are not happy unless they are criticizing others. There are people who are miserable, and canít stand to see anyone else happy so they proceed to discourage the one that is happy. These people will give an account to God for their criticism and sarcasm.
Are you feeling discouraged today? Jesus will help you, go to Him immediately when satan attacks you. It is not our strength that defeats satan and all of his servants on earth. It is the Strength of Jesus!
We need to be careful that we donít discourage someone, and that we donít say something critical to that person. We need to grasp this concept in our heart, that when we hurt people, we break the Heart of Jesus once again.
Are you being critical and saying discouraging remarks, or are you giving encouragement to others? Remember, you get back what you give out. If you give out criticism, that is exactly what you will get in return.
