Discouragement is the feeling of despair in the face of obstacles, being deprive of hope, no courage. When we are discouraged we cannot hear from God, we cannot commune with Him. We lose sight of victory that is ours, Ps61vs2-3(gnt) says" In despair and far from home I call to you! Take me to a safe refuge, for you are my protector, my strong defence" I pray when we get to a state when we are in despair, when our hearts are overwhelmed we will run to drink from the well of our Salvation. Discouraged people give up easily. "Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage, do not be afraid nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go"Josh1vs9. When we are discouraged we are a magnet for the devil. Sometimes we get so tired waiting on the Lord for an answer, tired with work, with your marriage, with family, with life we suffer " burn-out". Burn-out is synonymous with frustration and frustration is an early warning sign for the onset of discouragement. Its easy for people who are tired and frustrated to conclude they are going to fail. These thoughts are a stepping stones to discouragement and fear. Discouragement brings the spirit of "we are not able" just like the Israelites Moses told them to go up at once and possess the land, for they were well able to overcome it, Numbers 13vs30, then in verse31-33 they panicked, they felt inadequate they were discouraged and gave room to negative thoughts they said we are not able, we are like grasshoppers. I pray we stand against the spirit of evil expectation and think positively for we are able to overcome in Jesus Mighty Name!! Stand on the promises of God and watch Him raise up a standard on your behalf. In Jesus Name you are well able to conquer every obstacle and drink from the wells of Salvation with Joy!! Next we will look at steps we need to take to overcome discouragement. Remain Blessed and Heavenly Favoured!! Shalom!!
