Psalms 42:6 NLT my God! Now I am deeply discouraged, but I will remember you— even from distant Mount Hermon, the source of the Jordan, from the land of Mount Mizar.

Psalms 42:11 NLT Why am I discouraged? Why is my heart so sad? I will put my hope in God! I will praise him again— my Savior and my God!

There will be things that cause us to be discouraged. There may be a loved one who died, termination from our employment, a relationship ending, or financial struggles. With all the things that can cause discouragement, the way to overcome it is remembering what God has done and putting our hope in what God has promised.

When we take the time to remember what He’s brought us out of and things He’s delivered us from, we build our hope in His word. When hope arises, discouragement must leave.

Remember the awesome way God brought you out of negative situations in the past. Remember how faithful He’s been throughout the years. Remember how He’s kept His promise to you and place your hope in Him. As we have an expectation for God to come through, we’ll no longer be discouraged.
