Day 5 – Fighting Discouragement

Fighting discouragement while you wait can sometimes seem so hard. Are you waiting on an answered prayer or question, waiting to meet and marry your future spouse, or waiting on a promise that God told you was yours? Whatever it is that you are waiting on, you must be willing to set it aside and continue walking with God.  Be active in that wait, worshipping, praising, reading your scriptures, listening to the word, reading books that educate, uplift and encourage you.  God speaks through so many avenues that you must be open to hear from Him however He wants to speak to you.  No matter what, keep hoping and believing in Him so that you can stay encouraged

Deuteronomy 31:8 Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the Lord will personally go ahead of you. He will be with you; he will neither fail you nor abandon you.”

Isaiah 41:10 Don’t be afraid, for I am with you.  Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.

Heavenly Father, thank you that we can be encouraged by You and Your word. Disclose to me how to use every tool and resource that you have equipped me with to fight discouragement and discontentment in my life.  Enable me to be busy living a full life committed to you beyond the distraction of paying attention to extent and length of my wait. Let me put off any defeating or oppressive thoughts and renew my mind to believe Your word.  In Jesus Mighty Name I Pray, Amen!
