Value of Discouragement – March 7 – Journey of Leadership Daily Devotion

I will like to share four things you must value  in order to deal with any moment of discouragement either in your personal life, relationship or your leadership assignment.

Value defines your life. Value makes the difference in determining the quality, preference and commitment we give to something. It can make a difference in your relationship, Christian life, choices, perspective about everything, including God. 

When People Leave You 

One of  the most disturbing things that bring discouragement is when people you love and believed loves you suddenly leave you. When those who seems to show they care so much about your life, progress and success unexpectedly turned against you or abandon you.

People Stay or Leave You for Value Sake

One hard truth that will never allow us get discouraged when people live out their true human nature is to understand that most people only stay with you for the value they derive for themselves from you. And they can suddenly turn against you or abandon you when you no longer serve their preferred value. 

Never Commit Yourself Unreservedly to  People 

Please don’t get me wrong. Committing yourself unreservedly to people is to handover the key of your joy, progress, purpose and future to them. 

As unrealistic as this may sound, it is the truth about how many of us live our lives. We have forgetfully made people to take the position of Jesus in our lives.

Don’t Look Up to Anyone for Encouragement 

Always look unto Jesus for encouragement, not people (Hebrews 12:2). Many of us have so much reconditioned our lives and committed ourselves to the approval of people that we can’t pursue the purpose of God set for us without their consent and approval.

To have the courage required to fulfill your destiny, you must learn to be like Jesus in John 2:23-25.

I will continue from here tomorrow by His Grace. 

Pray for Discerning of hearts and courage to live your life based on the approval of Christ alone! 

“Whoever has the key to your heart controls your destiny. Give it to no one except Jesus (Revelation 3:20)”

“…Weep not; behold the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof” (Revelation 5:5)
