“They traveled from Mount Hor along the route to the Red Sea, to go around Edom. But the people grew impatient on the way; they spoke against God and against Moses. “ Numbers 21:4,5
Discouragement is Satan’s most useful tool. The Israelites became discouraged and complained about God’s provisions in the wilderness. If only they would have believed God’s promises, they would have been encouraged.
Discouragement turns into encouragement when we look away from our circumstances and focus our eyes on God and His promises.
To look up is to be blessed.
