“Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the Lord will personally go ahead of you. He will be with you; he will neither fail you nor abandon you.””
Deuteronomy 31:8 NLT
The Lord goes before us. The reason we know this is because He has so promised us. So many times in our lives we will face discouragement. But the key to overcoming discouragement is keeping our hearts and minds focused on the Lord and His word.
The battlefield is our mind and victory is found when our minds are fixed on God’s word. This requires daily study and meditation on God’s word. God’s word is the manna for our spiritual lives and spiritual growth. Those who neglect the diligent study of God’s word on a daily basis will struggle because their minds will be vulnerable to the onslaught of the enemy. If we desire to walk in victory and freedom it requires that we daily spend time in the diligent study of God’s word.
