Hebrews 6:12 We do not want you to become lazy, but to imitate those who through faith and patience inherit what has been promised.
If you aren’t experiencing it currently there will be a time that you will. Discouragement is hard on a Christian because we know that God hears our prayers and sometimes wonder why He doesn’t answer them.
Discouragement means having faith that whatever the outcome, although it may not be what we want or believe- God knows that the end result is better for you. There may be times when you just don’t know what to do, maybe you have tried something that you think could work, but it fails miserably and you wonder why hasn’t God supported this?
Think, is it because when you started it you didn’t come in prayer fully to Him with the idea and let it rest on Him so that He may guide you to that outcome.
My dear friends, God puts desire in your hearts for the good of others so that you may glorify Him when the He blesses you.
Do you see that God is working in this way?
Discouragement is tough, but in faith God will show you through these trials that you will prevail in the end. When your focus is on the greater good of others, then you will be blessed according to God’s purposes and pleasure.
God doesn’t want us to give up either, if we feel led by the Holy Spirit to continue even if what you are trying to do gets tough, even if no one is encouraging you but you know deep down that you are suppose to be doing this –pray and seek God for His outcome and continue on unless He puts a stop to it.
There’s always that possibility that what drives you to accomplish goals and making that your focus, instead of Christ, then you must step back and seek God for guidance. There’s a reason the Holy Spirit could stop you.
Just remember that no matter what you do, if you are doing even the smallest of things for God, you are bringing glory to Him while you wait in faith for what He will do next in your life. Have Faith!
Lord you have all the answers, we don’t, so in my disappointment I seek you and will have faith that you know what’s best for me and you have the outcome. Help me to be strong, In Jesus name Amen
