Dealing With Discouragement

Psalm 42:1-8

How can we conquer discouragement? Nine specific steps:

1. Look within. Prayerfully examine yourself for the underlying cause.
2. Admit that you are discouraged. It's easy to avoid,
ignore, or lie about it. But denial is deadly, and it guarantees
failure.
3. Identify precisely what you are discouraged about. Name it; then face it.
4. Recall the nature of discouragement. Disappointments will come and go, but
discouragement is a choice that you make.
5. Begin meditating frequently on God's Word. This
way, you can accurately judge what you feel by what is real (Psalm
3:2-4; 16:7-8; 63:6-8; 77:12; 119:15).
6. Take your area of discouragement to God in prayer. Ask Him to reveal what He
wants to teach you in this area of your life.
7. Focus on God, not your situation. Ask Him to help you see this disappointment
and its lessons from His perspective.
8. View the cause as coming from the Lord. If we
understand that He allows disappointments, we can find an opportunity
for growth, even in trouble. Note I said ALLOWS not causes.
9. Confess these three truths aloud: The Father is with me in the pain; He's in
control of my life and has allowed this for a reason; He is a good God, who will
turn this disappointment into blessing.

Discouragement may sound harmless enough, but don't ever underestimate its
destructive power. By keeping watch, you can avoid this deadly trap.
So write down these nine steps on an index card, and then review the list whenever
disappointments start to consume your thinking.
