As believers, we have the right to claim God's promises. When discouragement sneaks in and you don't feel like reading the Bible--go to the Word. When you're frustrated with life's circumstances and are tempted to quit--go to the Word.
Protect your heart from discouragement. Open the Bible. Claim His promises. And that old desperado named discouragement will be driven away.
Fear knocked at the door and faith answered. No one was there.
Old English Proverb
(This was taken from Today's Turning Point with David Jeremiah)
I really enjoyed this topic today. Don't you find that when things aren't going well you may turn away from the Word instead of turning toward the Word? I know that I often respond this way. We get discouraged....we feel that God isn't listening.....we surely aren't seeing any results from praying. All of this is beyond our understanding and we need to turn toward the Word....always .....under all circumstances......good and bad...... turn toward God's Word. Open your Bible.
