Haters, naysayers, pessimists, and doomsday prophets are all driven by the same attribute, vision. Be it their own or extinguishing another’s, these are the people who will either make or break you.
Our enemy will discourage you from without
and discourage you from within.
Conquer your oppressor through prayer, recalling the source of your vision and revising your plan of attack.
Keep your focus.
This speaks immediately to horrible, discouraging things in my life.. And much time in prayer makes the difference. And when feeling weak in prayer, I find that the written prayers of saints and prayer books help give voice to my cries.
Thank you for sharing! Prayer is a powerful tool in our spiritual arsenal.
In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express.
