We can get discouraging words, from enemies or even family or church friends - A discouraging word can be a deadly weapon. Nehemiah refused to surrender to Tobiah's discouragement, just as David rejected Goliath's diabolical teasing. Focusing on God and His Help rather than on their discouraging situations, David and Nehemiah both achieved victory. Taunting can come from anybody, including those very close to us. This is very true. Responding to them negatively only saps our energy. But God encourages us through His Promise: He will never forsake us ( PSALMS 9:10--HEBREWS 13:5), and He invites us to rely on His Help ( HEBREWS 4:16).
Thank you, Father, I pray for All in Jesus Holy Name
