Discouragement is a reality and it comes at us from so many different directions! But as a child of the most high King, we should never get stuck in discouragement. Discouragement will come our way, but we don’t have to let it stay!
When you find yourself facing discouragement, stop and ask yourself this question: “Why should I ever be discouraged?” God created me in His image. God bought and paid for my forgiveness, so that I can have everlasting relationship with Him. God is preparing a place for me and will one day carry me to that place to live with Him forever and ever. When we look at all that God has for us, then it helps us to not be taken over by the little that comes against us.
Life is tough! But we don’t have to let the toughness of life get us down and we certainly should not let it take us out. Don’t let your courage get dissed! That is exactly what discouragement is: It is the disrespecting of your courage! Don’t just take it, get up and fight it for God’s glory and your blessing!
See here is the amazing truth about discouragement: On the other side of discouragement there is promotion, if we are faithful! That’s right! God wants to use your discouragement to take you to places that you could never take yourself, to help you do incredible and amazing things, to move you out of your comfort zone and into a place of grace, a place where your faith can grow and allow you to transform into something amazing for Him!
The enemy wants to weigh you down with burdens, but God wants to set you free with joy! It’s your choice – what’s it going to be?
