3.14.15–>”Retraining”

retrain

Psalm 42:6

Now I am deeply discouraged, but I will remember You–

I believe one of the most important, the most vital aspects of the Christian life, that is our part, is to train ourself to go immediately and directly to God when you are discouraged.“When you are deeply discouraged, remember Me.”

It’s really a Retraining, because we’ve been trained most of our lives to probably do something different–dwell on the hurt, call a friend to gossip, drink a bomber of Trader Joe’s Vintage Ale, etc.

But what is difficult at first, that¬†can¬†become habit, is to cry out to God in desperate need AND trust that He is there and more than willing to meet us in our discouragement and lift us out of it. Circumstances may not change, and we may even continue to dislike a situation to some degree, but He brings peace in the midst of it–if we go to Him humbly and in faith, trusting He is ever true to His word.

“When you are deeply discouraged, remember Me.”

And isn’t peace what we all want at the end of the day?

We should talk about this for a few days…

“When you are deeply discouraged, remember Me.”

In the Name of Jesus,
Soli Deo Gloria
