Disappointments are inevitable
Discouragement is a choice
When You Get Discouraged:
Num 21:4-5 You’ll say stupid things that you’ll regret.
Matt 11:3 You’ll begin to doubt God.
Num 13:31-33, Num 32:7 You’ll start imagining things.
Your task will become more difficult than it really is.
Num 20:1-11 You’ll do the wrong thing. Moses forfeited his inheritance. Col 3:23-25
1 Sam 30:3-6 You must encourage yourself in the Lord your God. Ps 42:5 Hope thou in God. Trust God. Make God your greatest expectation.
Encourage yourself in what God’s done, what he’s doing, and what he’s going to do.
