The Light Daily Devotional – Do not be Discouraged
Focus: Do not be Discouraged
The word for today
Discouragement is a tool the devil always uses to hinder a man from forging ahead to victory and success. Don’t be discouraged about anything good you have started or aiming at but be encouraged to succeed in it!
“I command you–be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9 NLT
One of those things you will not but always experience in everything you do is discouragement. You will be tempted to quit your marriage, relationships, business, ministry, career, church, and the things you do for God on account of setbacks or unfavorable outcomes.
When your expectations over certain issues of life are not met do all you could to ensure improvement. The evil one has not succeeded in whatever you do until he stops you from pursuing your goal. At a point, the Israelites by the hardship and setbacks they faced on the pathway to the promised land contemplate not forging ahead but rather returning to Egypt. The ultimate goal of discouragement is to take back or put your life on hold. Whenever discouragement comes, always find grace and strength in God to encourage yourself to forge ahead!
+ Are you discouraged about things?
Prayer: Lord! I will not be discouraged; come what may I will reach my goal in Jesus’ name. Amen!
Emphasis: Discouragement weakens the required strength you need to achieve your goal. A man will deprive himself of his blessings whenever he becomes discouraged.
