Refuse to Lose
Deuteronomy … go up and posses the land, fear not, neither be discouraged
All of us become disappointed when we have plans that fail, hopes that do not materialize, and goals that are not reached. When this continues for a while, we become discouraged, a condition that can lead to depression if not handled properly.
When you get discouraged, you must make a decision to adapt and adjust, to take a new approach, to just keep going despite your feelings. That is when you must rise above the discouragement through Him who lives in you. He is always available to help you find renewed direction and hope. I always say, “When you’re discouraged, get encouraged, and when you’re disappointed, get reappointed”.
