“DISCOURAGEMENT!” CONTINUED!

 Point # 1 was, “LOOKING AROUND BRINGS DISCOURAGMENT:

Discouragement: Depression of one’s spirit. What are some of the causes?

DISPLEASURE

Look at Moses when he was displeased and discouraged in Numbers 11:10-15.

DEFEAT

Look at Joshua 7:7-9 after the loss of Ai.

DOWNHEARTEDNESS

Look at Elijah under the juniper tree in  I Kings 19:4.

DISILUSIONMENT

Look carefully at the wise preacher Solomon in Ecclesiastes 7:23-29.

What are some of the remedies for disillusionment?

  • Presence of God.

God said to Elijah, “What doest thou here, Elijah?” 1 Kings 19:9-18. Elijah fled to Mt. Horeb, the mountain of God where God met with Moses.

  • Proper casting.

“Cast thy burden upon The Lord, for He careth for you.” Psalm 55:22.

  • Pointed prayer.

Mark 6:31 “Come ye apart … and rest awhile.” Jesus often went alone to pray and rest.

  • Practical preparation.

Luke 21:28, “For your redemption draweth nigh.”

We need to get ready for the coming of the Son of Man.

CONTINUED TOMORROW!
