Even the great get downhearted

discouragedMany people are battling with discouragement, despair, hopelessness and depression. Perhaps there are even people here today who feel like this today. 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 has 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?
