Volume 2 | Issue 7 | September 2013
Welcome to The Encouragement Chronicles
The SEVENTH edition of The Encouragement Chronicles contains a whole new set of Series created since the release of the previous Chronicle which have me Encouraged! This issue comes at a critical point and time for me in that I’ve been out of the hospital for 24 days today with NO headache. While there are some challenges here and there, for the most part am doing well and have been able to generate seven (7) brand new Series, finish a few books and plan about twenty-one (21) New Series titles to share. That is to add to the 118 other Series sites already available!
Will focus less on numbers this time around, rather focusing on how we see each other in light of our daily walk and relationships. The strongest Relationship as Christians is the one with our Lord and Saviour, which when extended to all those that we know, meet and even greet will show through in our every action, word and emotion.
It has come to my attention that some folks just don’t want to read something this big – YES, this is the largest thing that I publish – but I sure would Encourage you to scroll through it to see if something catches your eye or your heart on the way to the bottom of it.
Just in time for Fall, the first four Background Series will be highlighted as the second Spotlight, which have been used as backgrounds for ministry items around the globe. Enjoy!
Hope you will be Encouraged by a few New Series and a highlight of a few more! REMEMBER: Share this Chronicle with someone you love and care for, it may be just what they need to be Encouraged.
Do remember this is the once a month, large issue if you will, showcase manner in which The Encouragement Chronicles highlights the goings on of things happening with DeliverTheWord.com. These editions will naturally be larger providing everyone with a power packed collection new items to learn about and see how they have been used!

Series Showcase | Consider One Another
As this Series has been in the developing stages, so many things have come to mind – some of which have been good things and other which have not been such good as I’d like. The statement which came to mind over and over again in the study and preparation time is the following:
The blue words are taken from the Scriptures in Hebrews 10:24, although those weren’t the first words originally started with for this Series. With careful review, the “Be of Good Courage” turned into something different – which settled me on the “consider one another“. That original verse of Scripture is important for us to review, to examine while it may not be first, it is a VERY important to be included – it follows:
“They helped every one his neighbour; and every one said to his brother, Be of good courage.”
Isaiah 41:6 | King James Version
The challenge for me is the consideration of distance – everyone helped his neighbor with the admonishing of “Be of good courage” – right where they were. Unfortunately as a society at large, we are removed from the focus on family, friends and neighbors like we were when I was a kid – for they were our society, in rural Kentucky (USA). Now we travel so much to get where we are going and the people we spend time with are often more miles apart than we may realize.
The second thought about the verse in this preliminary image for this Series are the black lettered words “meeting together” & “encouraging” – which is to be applied to all that we are around to form the complete action of:
“consider meeting together, one encouraging another”
We should think about, focus on and take time to pray for those people we are around and what impact our lives are making on them, their family and the relationship they have with Christ. That should ring true whether that is at our homes, at the grocery store, at work, at play, at church… We can have that “consider” factor, which I’m challenged to remember will come about from our Relationship with our Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ. The more like Him we become, the more consideration we will have for those around us and the time we spend with them.
We will, almost by not even noticing it because of how natural it will come, experience the way we “consider” others as Christ would have us do so by having that right Relationship with Him. Let us look at that verse again:
“And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works:”
Hebrews 10:24 | King James Version
By our focus on others, we could actually be the catalyst for others showing love and doing things which are good works as unto the Lord! That little verse just became a BIG action item and a promising reward for us doing what we ought to do. Oh what a tender love we can have towards those who may just need to have someone spend a little time with them and who is willing to share with them how the Holy Spirit has worked in us to do something for others for God’s Glory and to Lift Up Christ.
Consider these thoughts from eleven (11) wonderful verses of Scripture:
|1024×768 (SVGA/XGA) | 1280×1024 (SXGA) | e-Courage|
We have the opportunity and responsibility to Encourage others beyond the world’s definition of self-esteem and believing in one’s self – you and I have not only the Word of God, but access into the very Throne Room of Heaven to the Author of Faith, the One who Paid for us to have it and the indwelling of the Holy Spirit to guide us. Consider One Another, by Meeting Together and Encouraging!

Series Spotlight | Renewing Of The Inner Man
Over the years have heard so many times about folks who are just “worn out” or get “burned out” on the ministry, but rarely does that phrase get applied to a mass group of folks who really exhibit the tendency. Those people are “Christians” in general if you will, who may have never really gotten plugged in to a solid body of Believers. You and I may see or hear of it as many things, including the following:
|1024×768 (SVGA/XGA) | 1280×1024 (SXGA) | e-Courage|
How many more could we add to the list – certain there would be pages… What all of those have in common, is all of them are outward appearances, not an inward inspection. In order to “Renew”, there must be something that is used to refresh, restore and reactivate from the inside so it SHOWS up on the outside. It is a process of Encouragement and being changed by the inner working of the Holy Spirit through God’s Word. It is the process of edification and understanding what God the Father has for us, what the Lord Jesus Christ Redeemed us to have the opportunity to be and what the Holy Spirit guides as we are being each day.
Enlightenment | The Most Dangerous Burning Out
Some folks would think that the word “Edification” and “Enlightenment” mean the same thing. They are NOT anywhere close on the spectrum of meaning of the renewal process. In Buddhism, it is the “awakening to ultimate truth by which man is freed from the endless cycle of personal reincarnations”. For Hinduism, it is the state of transcendent divine experience – the ultimate goal of all religion. Philosophically, it was started as a moment stressing the importance of reason, innovations and the critical re-appraising of existing ideas and social institutions of the times. Edification is more tightly aligned with Spiritual improvement and learning based upon teaching from God’s Word.
While there were positive things borne out of the Enlightening times, which would include the propagation of the Word of God to the world, the focus was mainly centered on the individual, while removing the Bible. It is amazing to me that folks will do more for a “religion” in the many steps required, but do not consider that what the Lord really wants is a Relationship than a followship. To boot, He gives us all the Instructions and Tools to make it happen – the Word of God, the Holy Spirit, Spiritual Gifts and Talents.
- The closer we walk with Him, the more we will talk to Him.
- The more we talk to Him, the more we will be like Him.
- The more we are like Him, the renewal process becomes a daily part of our lives.
Just a little talk with Jesus… made me whole… makes it right… We indeed an be Renewed Day By Day. Here are the titles of the nine (9) prints for this Series:
Renewing Of The Inner Man Titles
- Day By Day
- In Earthen Vessels
- Not Destroyed
- By His Spirit
- Delight In The Law
- Shall Be The Covenant
- The Candle Of The Lord
- Thy Salvation
- To The Heart
Refreshing to know that while we may wear out on the outside and even be weary, our Spirit can be refreshed daily and we can walk, talk, do for the Lord as He provides – always…
