You know the kind of people who always seem to lift your spirit when you’re around them? They always have an encouraging word; they always fire you up, and you always leave their presence better off than before. It’s not that they have it all figured out; it’s not that they have all the answers, they just know how to bring out the best in you. They fan the flame inside of you and make you want to rise up higher.
Do you know that to someone else, you are that person? When you wake up every morning, know that you will set the example for someone that day. You will inspire someone; you will impact someone in your life and cause them to rise up higher! Your friends, your family, your coworkers, even the checkout clerk at the grocery store can be inspired by you! Not only that, God needs you to inspire the people around you. He needs you to encourage them and lift their spirits because you are His representative in the earth. You are His example of goodness to the people around you.
Today, know that you are a person of value, importance and significance! You are called to encourage and bless the people in your life. Find a way to lift the spirits of the people around you because you are the hands and feet of Jesus in the earth!
…Pray for your brothers and sisters. Keep your eyes open. Keep each other’s spirits up so that no one falls behind or drops out (Ephesians 6:18, The Message).
