We recently read David Crone’s book The Power of a Life Message.  Here is something David had to say about encouragement.

Encouragement is the primary language of the Holy Spirit.  It has its roots in the heart of the Father, and as such, it releases a powerful anointing into the atmosphere and brings life to the hearer.  That anointing has the power to break the hold of a toxic world on individuals who are trapped in a cycle of pessimism and negativity. Encouragement comes in the opposite spirit and challenges the enemy’s favorite weapon – discouragement – giving us permission to hope.

Let’s all look for ways to encourage someone today.
