Have you felt discouraged lately? You are not alone. Chuck Swindoll says, “We are all faced with a series of great opportunities brilliantly disguised as impossible situations.” Let’s look discouragement in the face today and refuse it! And then press on, expecting our God to do amazing things through us.

Winston Churchill once said, “Continuous effort, not strength nor intelligence, is the key to unlocking our potential.” One of the greatest acts of spiritual warfare is to not quit! Take just one step of faith today.

If you have been discouraged, remember the words of Paul, “I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me” (Phil. 3:12). Jesus Christ has taken hold of you. He believes in you! He sees so much potential in you! And since he believes in you, refuse discouragement. Press on. Great opportunities await you!
