rainbowMATTHEW 9

Encouragement for the heart

SCRIPTURE

v2 Take heart, son…….v22 Take heart, daughter.

OBSERVATION

Those close to Jesus and the crowds around Him were amazed at the outward miracles that He did.   He Himself spoke first to the heart.

APPLICATION

We recognise God’s activity in many aspects of our lives, but when we feel inwardly harassed and helpless, Jesus also sees our inward needs and has compassion (v36).   He brings encouragement to our hearts as we look to Him in faith.

PRAYER

Dear Lord, I sometimes feel at the end of my tether.   Please help me to look to You in faith and know your encouragement. Amen
