TOPIC: UNCHECKED WEAPON

Read: James 1:1-4
MEMORISE: My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience (James 1:2-3).

EXPOSITION
One of Satan’s most effective weapons is discouragement. The enemy knows that if he can destroy our courage, we will be ineffective in our attempts to accomplish anything for Christ. Let us explore the downward spiral created by this destructive force. One mark of discouragement is divided mind. This underlying distraction affects every area and decision. No matter what you are doing, it feels as if a dark cloud covers your entire life.

Discouragement also leads to the “blame game,” where it is common to feel the need to point a finger at somebody else. You may want to find fault with God because He has allowed painful circumstances in your life, or you may accuse others because of the way they treat you perhaps, you feel guilty for poor choices or past mistakes. Blame is an empty activity. No healing or restoration ever comes from trying to pin responsibility on someone else for the hardships in your life.

Anger is another common indication that a person is discouraged. When this occurs, bitterness may develop and finally comes spirit of vengeance. If you let anger grow and fester without resolution, it can easily turn into depression. The resentment can act like cancer that slowly spreads and invades every aspect of your life.

The trials described above are not what one would expect of a Christian, are they? However, they are all too evident in church. Ask the Lord to search your heart for any trace of discouragement-and to eliminate its destructive power from your life today.

PRAYER POINTS
1. Lord, search my heart for any trace of discouragement, and eliminate its destructive power from my life.
2. Lord, rid me of any anger in my life, today, in Jesus’ name.
3. Every satanic weapon employs to fight my faith in You, Oh Lord, let it be destroyed.

EXTRA READING FOR TODAY: Daniel 9 -11
