Dealing with Discouragement

Sharing is caring!

Discouragement ensnares.

You must refuse to be ensnared by the Power of discouragement if you really desire to thrive in this complex world.

Someone said, “Life makes no room for cowards.” In other words, surviving the snares of discouragement requires that you live courageous at all times.

One of the best counsels you must never be tired of receiving is what will fuel your courage to live your best life and to lead others into their best in God.

Every day demands a new level of courage because each day comes with a fresh demand. And the higher you desire to go in the fulfillment of God’s plan for your life is the more you will need courage to confront various challenging oppositions.

I’ll like to share few lessons with you on how you can survive the snares of discouragement irrespective of the circumstance surrounding your life.

Be a Person who Perceive what others Can’t

Never allow discouragement to blind your awareness of God’s presence and His love in the midst of adversities.

People who survives discouragement always see beyond the sufferings, sorrow, loss and failures. They know God will always send help in the midst of all they are going through.

Don’t Trust Your Fear

The strength of discouragement is fear. And the voice of fear is not always to be trusted.

When you choose not to listen to voice of your fear, you will always rise above frustrations and discouragements.

Those who listen to their fears see themselves as victims. But when you refuse to trust your fear, you can see yourself as victorious and that’s who you are.

Get Yourself Occupied

Inaction fuels the fear that empowers discouragement. But action breeds confidence that empowers courage.

If you want to escape the snares of discouragement, do not sit inactive. Get yourself occupied with something that is purposeful and value added.


Ask the Lord to empower you above your present challenges!


“Inaction fuels the fear that empowers discouragement. But action breeds confidence that empowers courage.”


1 Samuel 30:1-19
