The reason that you become so discouraged in trying to do what is right is that there is a war being waged against your soul.
Conscious of this war, Jesus gives His life to make us victorious in this war. He not only tells us how to live, He picks us up when we fail Him – and gives us the strength to try again.
Therefore, when you fail at doing the good things you want to do, do not run from Jesus – instead, run to Him. He will mend your soul and give you the strength to live this day for His glory – no matter what yesterday looked like.
He restores my soul;
He guides me in the paths of righteousness
For His name’s sake.
– Psalm 23:3
Feed on His life. Feed on His love for you and for everyone.
I am the bread of life.
– John 6:48
Do not starve yourself of encouragement. Partake daily of the bread that restores your soul.
Gives us this day our daily bread.
– Matthew 6:11
Always, always, let Him restore your soul…so that you can serve Him with gladness this new day.
