This is what the LORD says to you: ‘Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours, but God's.’
- When we are facing challenges and insecurity, we can get discouraged. - Discouragement robs us of our joy and of our peace. - Today, the Lord wants to say to you: ‘Do not be discouraged!’ - The Lord will fight for you, because He loves and cares for you.
Prayer: Lord, thank You for the strength, joy and peace You bring into my life. I will not allow a spirit of discouragement to torment me, because You have told me not to fear or be discouraged. Amen.

A Breakthrough Is Possible
April 1, 2019
Many people are battling with discouragement, despair, hopelessness and depression. Perhaps you are feeling like this today. You are not alone. Even the great people of God went through experiences like this. Like Moses, Abraham, Joseph and David. The prophet Jeremiah also faced difficulty and discouragement.
EVEN THE GREAT GET DOWN-HEARTED
Jeremiah was a great prophet who had been used by God He was the one who brought us these great scriptures:
Jeremiah 29:11 'For I know the plans I have for you says the Lord. They are plans for good and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.'
Jeremiah 33:3 'Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.'
These are some of the best-known and loved scriptures, yet there was a time when Jeremiah was discouraged. We find it in:
Jeremiah 15:18 'Why is my pain perpetual and my wound incurable, refusing to be healed? Will you indeed be to me like a deceitful brook, like waters that fail and are uncertain?'
Can you see the doubt and discouragement?
