Assurance and Encouragement



Rabindranath Tagore - “Faith is the bird that feels the light and sings when the dawn is still dark.”


We all crave acknowledgment, appreciation, and assurance in our endeavors in life. There have been numerous instances in my own life where confirmation of being on the right path and doing well was crucial for my motivation and perseverance.


Similarly, in our spiritual journey, walking with the Lord can sometimes lead to weariness and fatigue. It's during these times that we find solace and inspiration in the scriptures.


Colossians 1:23 advises us, “But you must continue to believe this truth and stand firmly in it. Don’t drift away from the assurance you received when you heard the Good News."


Paul often sent letters of affirmation and encouragement to fellow believers, urging them to press on.



In today's consumer culture, items typically come with a sticker indicating they've been inspected before reaching the shelves. Similarly, when we buy a vehicle, we trust it has undergone rigorous testing. This assurance of quality brings confidence in our purchases.


Likewise, God assures us through various means that we are qualified for the tasks He has assigned us. He has equipped and prepared us for His purposes.


2 Corinthians 3:5-6 elucidates this, stating, “It is not that we think we are qualified to do anything on our own. Our qualification comes from God.”



Focusing on the big picture rather than getting bogged down in daily concerns can often lead to doubt and the need for reassurance.


Matthew 6:34 advises against worry about tomorrow, emphasizing dealing with today's challenges first.


I've personally adopted this mindset, preferring not to plan too far ahead unless necessary. Embracing each day as it comes brings a sense of peace and relief. What God provides for us today prepares us for tomorrow's challenges.


Romans 15:5 offers a prayer for God's assistance in living harmoniously and encourages patience and mutual support among believers.
