"Pilgrim and Sojourner." - 1 Peter 2:11

 Don't Be Discouraged

Found blessed encouragement in these words tonight. Praying it encourages someone else as well. Praise The Lord...

“All of you have faced temptation, times of conflict between your natural conscience and the law of God. But that is not the contest in the believer’s bosom. It is warfare between the Spirit of God in the heart and the old man with his deeds. If any of you are groaning under this warfare, learn to be humbled by it, but not discouraged. It is intended to make you lie in the dust and feel acutely your need for Christ’s power and forgiveness. Even after you have received the Holy Spirit, you are still prone to wander and leave the God who rescued you.

Let this make you lie low. Let this teach you your need of Jesus. You need the blood of Jesus as much now as at first. You never can stand before God in yourself. You must go again and again to be washed. Even on your dying bed, you must hide under Jehovah, our righteousness. You must also lean on Jesus. He alone can overcome the sin in you. Draw nearer and nearer to Him every day.

Don’t be discouraged. Jesus is willing to be a Savior to such as you. He is able to save you to the uttermost. Do you think your case is too bad for Christ to save? Everyone whom Christ saves had just such a heart as you. Fight the good fight of faith; lay hold of eternal life."
