There are times we feel like we can’t make it. Times when we have no strength to pull through some situations. Times when even those who we depend on for courage are nowhere to be found. I am glad to know that it is just a season that comes and goes. It is up to you to choose who want to be after going through some hard times. Some situations come to challenge us, some come to encourage us, some come to make us stronger than we are. But never to kill you.You can either be a victim or a victor depending on how you respond to circumstances. Never allow challenges to victimize you.
Discouragement is just a lie from the devil that tells you cant make it.Sometimes it is people around us which discourage us.We just need the rock that is higher than we are. He is the rock of ages, He is the king of kings. God is bigger than our problems, bigger than our discouragement. It is very unfortunate that most people when discouraged ,take actions and decisions which discourage them even more. The bible says that David at some point encouraged himself when he was down and distressed. Right where you are, in that situation,say this short prayer.
LORD, LEAD ME TO THE ROCK THAT IS HIGHER THAN I – Psalms 61:2
Most people usually get stuck in their disappointments. Sadness about the non-fulfillment of expectations should not break you or your relationship with God. As a child of God, you can handle the pressure of disappointment. The devil takes advantage of your disappointment, he whispers to you that you can’t pray at this moment, you can’t praise God right now because you are upset. The enemy delights when he sees you in such a state. In this world people will disappoint you, things will disappoint you, but you should always know your place. The choice is yours, to break the disappointment and move on or to let it break you.
about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and
thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which
exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds
as you live in Christ Jesus. -Philippians 4:6-7
Being disappointed does not bring any answers, worry doesn’t fix things. You should give all your burdens and sorrows to God. Ask God to fulfill His plan for your life. The fact that you have at some point failed doesn’t mean that you are a failure. Setbacks don’t always mean you should quit and give up. May I take this opportunity to speak to someone who is disappointed right now…trust God about your life. This is not the end of the road. Rise and move forward for the word of God says though you walk through the valley of the shadow of death, you shall fear no evil. You don’t stay in the valley, you don’t die in the die, you don’t end in the valley, but you walk through the valley of the shadow of death.
