Discouragement—it’s hardly a new concept

Feeling discouraged? I know I do. There’s plenty for me to feel discouraged about: finances, my career, my family, the place I live, wondering if I’m really making a difference in God’s universe, and so on. Life is like a race where many of us from time to time have felt like quitting.

But if you think you’re alone in your discouragement, think again.

Moses in Numbers 11 was discouraged, even getting frustrated at one point about being in charge of the Israelites and asking God to relieve him of his command. Elijah, that great prophet who brought down fire from heaven to defeat the false prophets of Baal, was discouraged in 1 Kings 19 to the point to where he wanted God to end his life.

Remember Galatians 6:9: “And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.”
