Discouragement

It took some time for me realise how Satan tries his ways of fooling us. I was blaming God for many things that was going wrong in my life. Thank God for sending a loving soul who had a burden to pray for me.

Her words of wisdom and showing me how God loves me and the devious plans of Satan.

It is discouragement that causes us to turn away from God. Discouragement is not from God. It is the liar who is trying to tell us that God has let us down. We let God down many a time, but his mercies are new every morning. He is able to forgive us when we fail, and lift us up when we are fallen.

It is true that we can blame God for the things that we experience in life, like suffering and death. The Bible gives us reason as to why prayer is so important.

1. ( Matthew 6:9,10) says," Let your name be sanctified. Let your name be sanctified. Let you will take place in heaven also upon earth".

2. (Isaiah 55:6) says," Search for Jehovah, you people, while he may be found. Call to him while he proves to be near.

The Bible also gives us comforting assurance that our prayers will be answered.

1. (Philippians 4:6) says," do not be anxious over anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication along with thanksgiving let your petitions be made known to God."

yes,Satan is really good in making tricks,we have to be more wise than him.
Always trust God in everything =) thank you for this post =)

Blessings to you Yohanx. Your post is an encouragement for others.


All Praise The Ancient Of Days

Praise be to Him. Yes amen.

Discouragement is one of Satan's most powerful tools. It can prevent us from becoming and doing that which God wants. It not only turns people away from Him, but it also keeps them from turning to Him.
I read somewhere that the phrase "don't be afraid" appears 365 times in the bible (1 for every day of the year??). God doesn't want us to be discouraged.

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.
- Isa. 41:10

Thank you Shuhak. Fear Not. yes.
