Paul did it. David did it. Elijah, Job and Abraham did it. They all encouraged themselves. We must learn to speak what we believe. When there is doubt we should speak faith. When there is despair we should speak hope. When there is weakness we should speak strength. When there is hate we should speak love. Trust, believe and stand firm that God’s promises are true and know that his spirit upholds you, goes before you, and will never forsake you.
Deuteronomy 31:8 It is the LORD who goes before you. He will be with you; he will not leave you or forsake you.
2 Corinthians 4:16-18 So we do not lose heart. Even though our outer nature is wasting away, our inner nature is being renewed day by day. For this slight momentary affliction is preparing us for an eternal weight of glory beyond all measure, because we look not at what can be seen but at what cannot be seen; for what can be seen is temporary, but what cannot be seen is eternal.
