Discouragement is one of the weapons Satan uses to frustrate us, it destroys our hope. Without hope we give up, that is what the devil wants to see us do. The word of God repeatedly encourages us not to give up (Jer 29:11, Matt 11:28). God knows we’ll face challenges in our journey in life and we’ll not get our victory if we’re discouraged. So, He always encourage us to start every project with boldness and courage, he wants us to be encouraged and not discouraged.
Whenever discouragement or fear tries to overtake you, examine your thought life. What’s in your mind? What kind of thought are you thinking? Are you thinking of giving up because the situation is unbearable, or you think you’re the only person going through this kind of problem? Are you tired of trying, you’ve prayed but it seems as if God doesn’t hear because of my actions or attitude?
If this example is an indicative of your thoughts, it is no wonder you feel discouraged. Remember, you’ll become what you think about. Think discouraging thoughts and you’ll be discouraged. Change your thought life and be set free
I want to encourage you today to think positively, say things like “I know things are not going well now as plan, but I thank God, I’m making progress. I’m glad I’m on the right path that will lead me to my breakthrough. This is a new dawn, I trust God to lead me though to make the right decisions for my life, I refuse to be discouraged. I am sure you’re ready to be successful with this type of cheerful, positive and God-like thinking.
