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?
