Eliphaz starts by acknowledging Job as an encourager. He recognises Job as one who has given wise guidance, who has offered timely support and who has strengthened others.
This is so significant. The first thing that Job’s friends say about him is that he is an Encourager.
- Job 4:3-4 His instructions have strengthened feeble hands: when people didn’t know what they were doing, Job empowered them. “Let me help you, let me show you.” “Do you need a hand?” “How can I assist?” “Try it this way…” “This is what my dad taught me…”
The key word is “strengthening“.
Encouragement is about strengthening others.
– We share our knowledge/experience/wisdom and empower people.
– We offer forgiveness and a second chance to those who stumble.
– We come alongside and lend our strength to those who falter.
Today these verses came to life in a fellow believer, she was such an encouragement to us….
Tasha, such a blessing, serving us and serving God.
If we would all encourage one another especially at this time in our world, God’s love would be everywhere.
Pray for our brothers and sisters here in Mississippi and encourage one another.
