How To Overcome Fear & Discouragement: a coaching devotional Nehemiah 6:9

Nehemiah 6:9 NASB
For all of them were trying to frighten us, thinking, “They will become discouraged with the work and it will not be done.” But now, God, strengthen my hands.


Do you find yourself feeling overwhelmed, discouraged, fearful of the unknown, willing to give up anytime you see a post that encourages you toward greater, harder things or hear a sermon that really hits your heart?

The enemy doesn't want us building anything in accordance with God's will. He doesn't want to see families being built up by prayer and God's word. He doesn't want to see us building our bodies up or our minds up through exercise and self-discipline.

The enemy is here to steal all your motivation. The enemy will always come at us to tear us down and encourage us to feel like everything is too hard, to long to accomplish, and we're not good enough to do it anyway.

Let's choose to rebuke the desire to give up. Let's rebuke fear, procrastination, discouragement, overwhelm, and confusion.

Let's choose to visualize victory! You are more than an overcomer. You are worthy! no matter what others say or think. You are capable. You are smarter than you were yesterday and ALL things are possible for you who work with God daily.

Let's pray: Dear God, we thank You for Your love. We thank You that You created us to be more than conquers through Your Son, our Savior, Jesus Christ.

Jesus, we are in awe of Your power and love. We thank You for being our Good Shepherd who watches over us.

Please Holy Spirit empower us to dig deep into scripture and to rise above the discouragement and the trials of this life stronger than ever before.

We rebuke feelings of overwhelm, discouragement, and belief that we aren't capable or good enough for the dreams and goals You, Lord, have placed in our hearts and minds. Please strengthen our hands and help us to put our hands to the plow and never look back.

We thank You for calling us, qualifying us, and creating us for a lasting legacy of kingdom impact. Please help us to cultivate perseverance and endurance to co-create an abundance of blessings through every mundane task and growth journey we encounter.

In Jesus, name, we pray, Amen.

Let’s not become discouraged in doing good, for in due time we will reap, if we do not become weary.
