Some people barely live their life, and many are almost giving up on life.
Trust me, I am right there with you, but Job was much more right there with you.
Job experienced the most bizarre situation in life when he lost everything in a day. Everything!
Job’s wife told him to “curse God and die” That’s his wife telling Job to give up!
I believe Job wouldn’t expect this elevated level of discouragement, but he wasn’t discouraged.
The bible says that Job did not sin against God despite all his calamities.
Life is not that easy.
You made every effort to succeed, but there are many challenges and discouragement easily set in. You are not alone.
Job’s friends did not help the matter. Instead, they make it worse. I know some friends are not encouraging in times of need. Job had a similar experience too. So, you are not alone.
David was so stressed because everyone that surrounded him was against him, but he encouraged himself. Encourage yourself too!
And David was greatly distressed; for the people spake of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and for his daughters: but David encouraged himself in the LORD his God. 1 Samuel 30:6
Jesus was also stressed out in His last days that he persuaded the disciples to pray. No, they didn’t! And the temptation was too much for them to bear as they all abandoned Him when He needed them most.
So, you are not alone; I am sure of this. Many people are going through what you are passing right now.
Be strong and take courage because there is always light at the end of the tunnel.
