Psalms 119:25-32, 2 Thessalonians 1, Jeremiah 27, 28 & 29:1-23
My life is down in the dusty; give me life through your word. I told you about my life, and you answered me; teach me your statues. Help me understand the meaning of your percepts so that I can meditate on your wonders. (Psalm 119:25-27)
Discouragement comes to us all. It is a fact of life. Even the psalmist knew this. He was a man after God's own heart and yet he still felt discouraged. But there is help for all of us as well. It is found in the word of God. The psalmist said he found life in "your word." Even as he cried out to God, the Lord answered him through his word; his statutes. They are life to us all. Yes, we all need friends to listen to us and help us out, but nothing can replace the help and encouragement we get from God's word. Make sure and read it today.
