⠀ We do not always know why we are sad and discouraged, but it is usually because we do not find a way out of our problems, so we feel alone and frustrated.
Discouragement is a weapon the enemy uses to keep us from walking with God.
Discouragement robs faith and makes us look only at the negative side of things.
"These things have I spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace; in the world ye shall have afflictions, but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world. " John 16:33
⠀ But thanks be to God discouragement can be overcome.
When we pray, we read the Bible and sing praises, the Holy Spirit fills us with hope and encourages us to continue.
"The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I was helped; so my heart leaps with pleasure, and with my song I will praise him. " Psalms 28: 7
Force! Faith! Come on!
