II Thessalonians 2:16 and 17

May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal encouragement and good hope, encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good deed and word.

I often think of God giving us eternal life, but here, Paul reminds us that God has given us eternal encouragement and good hope. So, if we are feeling discouraged or discontented, we should not stay in that state of mind, but instead, look to God for His promised encouragement. The pages of Scripture are full of messages to us that include encouragement and good hope.
