MATTERSOFTHEHEART – “SPEAK OUT” OR “LOSE OUT”
The matters of the heart foundation was founded on the premise to encourage and proffer solution to ALL mind boggling questions as might be presented by an individual.
This was the mandate given by the owner of the work “Go and encourage others with the encouragement you received, use it to build up others. (And by His grace, I have not cease doing that and will continue till He calls me home and sure God will raise men and women through this ministry that will be used of God) So you discover that solutions to issues are received from the God with so much ease and less struggles. At the presentation of a problem, a word of knowledge will be release by the Holy Spirit. Praise God

We will be elaborating on these in subsequent bulletin, for us in the Overcomers-Faith Ministry is one of our guiding principles.
To the extent of the necessity of this gift to the body of Christ, you will discover in the message below, that Apostle Paul saw the necessity to send someone to the Philippians Church to encourage and guide them in their our walk with Christ.
So we all needs to either encourage others or be encouraged, we are all in it together.

The Gift of Encouragement
But I considered it necessary to send you Epaphroditus—my brother, co-worker, and fellow soldier, as well as your messenger and minister to my need. . . —Philippians 2:25
Some people know just what to say and do to encourage others who are going through difficult times. Their words give strength to those who are discouraged and comfort to those who are grieving. These people are sensitive to God’s voice.
They are not self-centered or unaware of the struggles of those around them. They are the ones we immediately seek when we enter a crisis. They are welcome visitors when we are in distress, for their presence sustains us.
Scripture testifies of many whom God enabled to encourage others. When Moses was overwhelmed by his work, Jethro went to him and encouraged him. Jethro gave Moses wise counsel that eased his strain (Exod. 18:1–27). When Paul was imprisoned far from those who loved him, Epaphroditus risked his health and safety in order to go to Paul and minister to him (Phil. 2:25–30).
Later, Paul urged Timothy to come and visit him, for Paul found strength and encouragement in Timothy (2 Tim. 4:9; Phil. 2:19–20). Paul asked Timothy to bring Mark also. Mark was the kind of friend Paul needed when he was enduring hardship (2 Tim. 4:11; Philem. 24). Paul also relied on Luke for encouragement. When everyone else was absent or preoccupied, Luke could be found with Paul (2 Tim. 4:11). Paul experienced trials throughout his life, but God sustained him by placing godly friends around him who provided support in practical and sacrificial ways.
God wants to develop you into the kind of friend who can strengthen others. The words you share and the things you do can bring comfort and encouragement to your family, your friends, your neighbors, and your coworkers.
Ecc 4:9-10:- There are advantages to cooperating with others. Life is designed for companionship, not isolation, for intimacy, not loneliness. Some people prefer isolation, thinking they cannot trust anyone. We are not here on earth to serve ourselves, however, but to serve God and others. Don’t isolate yourself and try to go it alone. Seek companions; be a team member.
Gen 2:18:- even God saw that loneliness is not good for the man, so made a helpmate for him. This is a mystical union of the couple’s hearts and lives. Throughout the Bible, God treats this special partnership seriously. If you are married or planning to be married, are you willing to keep the commitment that makes the two of you one? The goal in marriage should be more than friendship; it should be oneness. Do you ever ask why Eve fail? You can call or write in for more clarification. God bless you!
1 Pet. 2:9:- Christians sometimes speak of “the priesthood of all believers.” In Old Testament times, people did not approach God directly. A priest acted as intermediary between God and sinful human beings. With Christ’s victory on the cross, that pattern changed. Now we can come directly into God’s presence without fear (Hebrews 4:16), and we are given the responsibility of bringing others to him also (2Corinthians 5:18-21). When we are united with Christ as members of his body, we join in his priestly work of reconciling God and man.
Jesus, our model confided in His apostles ( Jn 16:33), so don’t die with that problem, “speak out” before you “lose out”. Solution is just round the corner. Beloved, “SPEAK OUT” NOW!
