In times like this, it is easy for anyone to get discouraged. You don't really need to do anything to get discouraged. You just give into the situation, listen to the news and analyze the statistics, you will see discouragement building up within you. God wants us to refuse to be discouraged. If we don't refuse to be discouraged, discouragement is going to have very serious consequences in the lives of God's children. Few such consequences are discussed in detail here.
1. Discouragement breeds worry & anxiety, frustration & hopelessness
2. Discouragement takes you off of God's plan (vision and goals)
3. Discouragement makes everything go wrong
4. Discouragement is very contagious
Listen to the sermon to know how important it is for us refuse to be discouraged.
