Many people are battling with discouragement, despair, hopelessness and depression. If this is you today, know that you are not alone. Even the great people of God went through experiences like this. Like at Moses, Abraham, Joseph and David. The prophet Jeremiah also faced difficulty and discouragement.
Jeremiah was a great prophet who had been used by God. He was the one who brought us great scriptures like:
Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord. They are plans for good and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.
Jeremiah 33:3 Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.’
These are some of the best-known and loved scripture, yet there was a time when Jeremiah was discouraged. We find it in:
Jeremiah 15:18 Why is my pain perpetual and my wound incurable, refusing to be healed? Will you indeed be to me like a deceitful brook, like waters that fail and are uncertain?
Can you see the doubt and discouragement? Even the great characters of the Bible went through periods of despair. Just like God was with them, He is with you today.
