Discouragement is a temptation “common to man” – “There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.” (1 Corinthians 10:13). – And in dealing with it, sometimes we need tenderness and other times we need toughness. But either way, discouragement is not to be tolerated or wallowed in. It is to be fought! The threat of discouragement in an individual’s life can be compared to a fish that is denied its natural habitat. I have come to settle with the truth that, “Great things do happen on the platform of high energies.”
One of the biggest hits on encouragement. Clearly a remarkable masterpiece!
