There are times in our lives when we feel discouraged, surrounded, and pushed down. There are times when you just want to lay in bed and wish it all away. At times like this, it is hard to hear encouragement.
In the Bible, we see that Jesus helps us when we are in tough situations, and when we are discouraged. When Jesus was in Capernaum, people came to Him to be healed. Mark 2:4-5 (NIV) “Since they could not get him to Jesus because of the crowd, they made an opening in the roof above Jesus by digging through it and then lowered the mat the man was lying on. When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralyzed man, “Son, your sins are forgiven.”
Sometimes we need some friends who are ready to pray for us, praise with us, cheer us up and go to spiritual battle with us to help overcome our discouragement.
In response, Jesus went right to the root cause. When we are sad, discouraged, and depressed, we need to get to Jesus in prayer and let Jesus speak to the root cause of our situation.
As the song Hold on by Sounds of Blackness says https://youtu.be/RE08EFwKyLA Don’t be afraid. Jesus got your back.
We love you,
