Defeating Discouragement

 

Scripture reference:  Micah 7:7-8

 

But as for me, I will look to the Lord;
I will wait for the God of my salvation;
my God will hear me.

Rejoice not over me, O my enemy;
when I fall, I shall rise;
when I sit in darkness,
the Lord will be a light to me.

 

  • God uses DIFFICULT times to DRIVE his children closer to Him.
  •  Our hope and perseverance is based on RELATIONSHIP, not RESULTS.
  •  God has SHOWN Himself to be SUFFICIENT throughout history.
  •  In times of discouragement, the DEPTH of our DEVOTION is revealed.

 

3 Ways to Defeat Discouragement:

  1.  DELIBERATELY LOOK to the Lord.
  2. PATIENTLY WAIT on the LORD.
  3. CONFIDENTLY TALK to the LORD.
