Steven Flurry has an article up in the Philadelphia Trumpet titled, You Can Conquer Discouragement! So what could be the cause of all that discouragement and disappointment? Could the headline of the next article be a cause of discouragement? Can they really be this stupid?
- Commentary: You Can Conquer Discouragement!God gives us the means.
- Commentary: DoYou Realize How Soon the World Could End?Events are moving far faster than most people grasp.So what is Little Stevie trying to get across? It all revolves around money. When you are depressed think about the "work." That will solve all your problems! Send your money in, it will make you happy to know you support the work.When you face discouragement, don’t let your mind dwell on the Jezebel obstacle in front of you. Get your mind on God and His work.
The key to overcoming discouragement is to get our minds off ourselves and onto the power and might of God. Turn to God in humility, with prayer and fasting. Then get back to work. Concentrate on serving God and doing God’s workThe cause of all that discouragement is this:Perhaps you’ve mulled some of those prophecies for years. Do you realize just how soon they could be full-blown reality?Are you ready? “[T]ake heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares,” Christ warned. “For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth” (Luke 21:34-35). Woe to those caught in that snare! And though Christ said it would entrap the vast majority, He gave this warning so you could be among the few who escape it (verse 36).
