Encouragement for the Christian Blogger

Encouragement for the Christian Blogger

Are you overwhelmed because God has asked you to start a Christian blog?

Or are you discouraged because only a few people read your Christian blog posts?

Or are you feeling stuck because you have limited funds to use for your online Christian ministry?

If you are, do the following:




1. Encourage Yourself
Encourage yourself by reminding yourself of Zechariah 4:10 which says, Do not despise small beginnings for the Lord rejoices to see the work begin. (Zechariah 4:10)

This shows us that if God asked you to begin your blog, He is rejoicing when He sees that you have begun even if you have very few page views.

Therefore continue blogging for The joy of the Lord is your strength. (Nehemiah 8:10)


2. Leave the Results to God
God knows how to use the Word that He gives you to accomplish the results He wants for He declares, My word that goes forth from my mouth shall not return to unto Me void but it shall accomplish that which I please and it shall prosper in the thing that I sent it for. (Isaiah 55:11) 

Therefore continue blogging and leave the results of your efforts to Him. Understand that even if only one person reads your blog, that person can go and impact hundreds of other people because of the inspiration which they garnered after reading your blog post.


3. Do Business
Jesus taught the parable of the noble who left for a journey after telling his servants, "Do business till I come." (Luke 19:13) Upon his return, he rewarded the servants who had done business with the talents he had given them. Therefore, emulate the Good and faithful servant (Luke 19:17) and do business with your blog.

4. Pray for Your Blog
Pray and ask God to bless your blog by using Scriptures since The sword of the spirit is the Word of God. (Ephesians 6:17) You can use your favorite Scriptures or these Bible prayers for your blog.

5. Use What Is In Your Hand
When God told Moses to go to Pharaoh and ask him to release the Israelites, Moses asked Him, "Suppose the Israelites do not believe me or listen to me or they say 'God has not appeared to you.'" (Exodus 4:1)

God replied by asking him, "What is in your hand?(Exodus 4:2)

Moses responded by saying "A rod(Exodus 4:2) and God told him to throw it to the ground. When he did so, it became a snake and God told him to pick it up by its tail and it became a rod once again. God then said, "So that they can believe that the Lord God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob has appeared to you.(Exodus 4:5)

Thus we can see that the rod that Moses used to carry as a shepherd was going to help him accomplish this new assignment that God had given him. 

Therefore understand that you can complete the blogging assignment that God has given you using "What is in your hand" or the resources you have at your disposal if you combine them with His power.

So instead of complaining about limited funds, tap into God's power by praying and then begin blogging on free platforms like Blogger.com and Wordpress.com.

  8. Love the reminder to 'use what's in your hand'. and it's always good for a Christian blogger to be reminded that the results are up to God and not to judge success by using a worldly standard. thanks!

  11. I don't necessarily classify my blog as a Christian blog. My faith does have a huge role on how I live my life. Thus, it affects my writing. I love the encouragement you have here, especially leaving the results to God. Quite honestly, my faith took a major beating when He required me to move to the other side of the world and started over from scratch 2 years ago. I am learning to trust in the unknown.
