Message title: Discouraged Servant Being Encouraged by God Series, Part III.
Foundation verse: Haggai 2:4-5 NKJV
Yet now be strong, Zerubbabel,' says the LORD; 'and be strong, Joshua, son of Jehozadak, the high priest; and be strong, all you people of the land,' says the LORD, 'and work; for I am with you,' says the LORD of hosts.
Action points for discouraged servants:
1.) God understands and cares about the discouragement you face in serving Him.
2.) The cure to discouragement is perseverance.
- God says, “Be strong!” You gain strength by trusting God no matter what happens.
- There are two aspects to this kind of perseverance:
A. Perseverance requires the right attitude.
B. Perseverance requires the right action.
3.) God assures you when we you're discouraged in serving Him by His presence, His promise, and His prophecy.
- God tells you not to fear because the New Covenant was founded on better promises (Hebrews 8:6)
