Overcoming Discouragement

At one point or another, we all get discouraged. It is an attack on the mind where you lose confidence and enthusiasm. The cycle of thoughts can be tough to break. Some of God’s greatest servants like David and Elijah fought discouragement in their lives. If you’re going through a time of discouragement, it’s important to focus on your thought life (Philippians 4:8). You also need to let someone know that you trust, and ask them to pray over you. You also need to combat it with the Word of God. Read it out loud and fill your mind with what God says. His Word is true and can combat the lies that take over our mind. It often takes an all out effort to combat it to win the victory and restore your confidence and enthusiasm.

Here are some Bible verses on discouragement.

1. This is my command—be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.

Joshua 1:9 NLT

2. He alone is my rock and my salvation, My defense and my strong tower; I will not be shaken or disheartened.

Psalms 62:2 AMP

3. The Lord is near to those who are discouraged; he saves those who have lost all hope.

Psalm 34:18 GNT

4. Lord, I’m fading away. I’m discouraged and lying in the dust; revive me by your word, just like you promised you would.

Psalms 119:25 TPT

5. Why am I discouraged? Why is my heart so sad? I will put my hope in God! I will praise him again— my Savior and my God!

Psalms 42:5 NLT
