Discourage?

Hebrews 11:27 – Many times we are snared by the visible. We lose sight of the invisible God. The devil always points us to the visible.
When believers walk by sight, they are worse and weaker than the people of the world.

Snare is what the devil use to get you discourages, you see your banks statement, your report, it is all visible. We lose sight of the invisible God. Elijah forgot the crows that fed him, he forgot the barrel of wheel that was never wasted, he forgot that the God answers by fire. Why? Because like this, we can fall away from faith and look at sight.

We can have the greatest faith yesterday and look at sight today. Peter asked the Lord Jesus when he saw him above the waves. “If it is you Lord let me come’’ Jesus says “ COME” based on the word of the Lord, looking at Jesus he stepped on the water. When Peter SAW the wind, when he SAW, when Peter saw the wind he lost sight of the living Lord and he began to sink. Walking by sight will cause the disciple to sink and the prophet to fail!

Taking your eyes of the invisible to the visible can make you sink. You get discourage.

We tend to make decisions based on what we feel or what we see instead of trust in the Lord.

Many times in the scripture the Lord God says trust in me! Do not worry; fear not, for I am with you. It is throughout the bible that people would take their eyes of the Lord Jesus and sink.

Never despise the day of small beginnings.
Through five loaves and two fish, Jesus fed the multitudes.
With a small jawbone of a donkey, Samson routed the army of the Philistines.
One cloud the size of a man’s fist can water the entire nation of Israel.

But do not forget that the breast was roasted by fire (Leviticus 7:35), which speaks of God’s judgment on Jesus as He hung on the cross because He was carrying our sins. So as you feed on Jesus’ love for you, see Him loving you at the cross. When things around you are not going well, do not allow the devil to say to you, “If God loves you, how come these things are happening to you?” Interpret God’s love for you based on the cross, not on your present circumstances.

During the day, when you are hard at work, when busyness sets in, when problems pile up or when discouragement comes, just stop everything and take a love break with Jesus!

Joshua 1:9 (AMP)

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous! Do not be terrified or dismayed (intimidated), for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
