Cure Discouragement

By   •   October 25   •   Topics:


Discouragement is nothing new. Many of the great Bible characters became discouraged. Moses in the Sinai desert; Elijah when he heard Jezebel was searching for him to take his life; and David when his son Absalom rebelled against him. It is as old as the history of man.

There is often a cause for discouragement. It comes many times when we don’t get our way, when things don’t work out the way we want them to. Discouragement is the opposite of faith. It is Satan’s device to thwart the work of God in your life. Discouragement blinds our eyes to the mercy of God and makes us perceive only the unfavorable circumstances.

I have never met anyone who spent time in daily prayer, and in the study of the Word of God, and was strong in faith, who was ever discouraged for very long.

Prayer for the day

Lord, when I am discouraged, take away the blindness of my wavering faith. You are with me always. Forgive my ungrateful heart.

    Was feeling discouraged for about an hour till I read this devotional for Oct. 25th. You see, I’m attempting to to get into chaplaincy but before I even find out for sure, I’m getting down. The reason? Was divorced about 25 years ago and don’t think I’ll be even given a chance. Thanks for the reminder of Who this is all really about, my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

    This is a divine encouragement to every one of us since every one is prone to discouragement and the temptations of Satan to discourage the children of God
