The Answer to Discouragement

Thoughts by Pastor Brad

David ends Psalm 43 with these words; “Why am I discouraged? Why so sad? I will put my hope in God! I will praise him again– my Savior and my God!” He was just complaining about all his trials and the evil people that are out to destroy him. He stops his complaining and begins to contemplate going up to the temple and worshiping God with His harp. He asks himself these two questions and then boldly proclaims that he will put his hope in God alone! Are you struggling today? Are you discouraged and feel that God has tossed you a side? Jesus promised to never leave or forsake you. Make that bold proclamation of faith to put your hope in God today and He will give you peace in the storm.
