They confronted me in the day of my disaster …

Over and over we need to remind ourselves how important it is that we should do all we can to get out of discouragement.

It’s easy to give up when we become discouraged, but there is ALWAYS a way out of it. A preacher once said, “There is only one thing that can stop you from getting into God’s plan for your life, and that is if you give up”.

We need to get knowledge about the strategy of the enemy. We need to understand that the enemy pushes us into discouragement, and then he uses the discouragement for his main attack.

Let’s take an example:
Imagine that the enemy makes a person betray someone in a very cruel way. Then the enemy attacks the betrayed person with darts of discouragement. It’s very possible that he receives the discouragement. He doesn’t realize though that it is an attack. Instead the discouragement seems very natural. After a while the enemy comes with his main attack, which he had planned for all the time. The enemy whispers to the discouraged person, “It’s no use. Why should I live? I can just as well leave it all”. Notice that the enemy says, ”Why should I live …”. He doesn’t say, “Why should YOU live …”. He wants us to receive his attacks as if they were our own thoughts.

In the example above the enemy’s plan was to kill, but he didn’t start with that attack. He used discouragement to get there.

We need to look at discouragement as something dangerous! Whatever people have done to you, your discouragement is even more destructive.
