DID YOU ever feel discouraged by your spiritual peers, parents or
Colossians 3:21 says, "Parents, donít be hard on your children.
If you are, they might give up."
The enemy can often stir up discouragement through the instruction or
hard teachings of spiritual leaders involved in the lives of those serving
in First Nations ministry.
TODAY, I INVITE YOU to pray with me that our Native people and those
serving in Native Ministry will be encouraged.
Ephesians 4:32 says, "Instead be kind and merciful, and forgive
others, just as God forgave you because of Christ."
Romans 12:10 says, "Love each other as brothers and sisters and
honor others more than you do yourself."
Ask our Creator NOT to allow our spiritual peers, parents and leaders
to provoke our First Nations people and those serving in Native Ministry,
lest they become discouraged.
