My friends, have you ever experienced or you’re currently experiencing that moment when nothing is working and everywhere you turn, you find a road block – that feeling of “I can’t carry on; I give up” overwhelms you? I have.
Serving God does not exempt you from these feelings. However, what it does is motivate you to draw strength from the only one who is able to encourage you – Jesus.
How do we transition from a place of discouragement to encouragement? David provided us with a roadmap in (1 Samuel 30:6). In his time of “I can’t carry on”. The word of God records for us that David found strength in the Lord his God.
You too can do the same in the place of prayer, praise and thanksgiving to God for what He has done, what He is currently doing and what He is yet to do.
If you are a Christ follower, encourage yourself in the Lord and say No to discouragement this week. If you are currently not a Christ follower, Jesus is calling today.
All glory to God!
