“Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the Lord will personally go ahead of you. He will be with you; he will neither fail you nor abandon you.”
In our flesh, it’s easy to get discouraged. When things don’t work out as you’d believed they would, your strength and determination can be replaced by doubt. One way to avoid these pitfalls is to shift your focus onto God and let go of these things. As often as we try, it’s only through God’s strength that we can stand firm.
