Breaking the Power of Despair

By Teresa Conlon

January 31, 2010

January 31, 2010 – This message is for those who wage a secret and hidden battle with despair. There are times and seasons when we can experience a wave of hopelessness and apathy and we are not able to point to a reason for this. There is a faint-heartedness that can come to the heart of a believer and there can be barely a heartbeat of faith or joy as we sink under this oppression. There are three aspects that open the door to despair: unbelief, pain and an incorrect understanding of the Father’s love when we are being chastened by Him. For the Christian despair will not be our permanent condition. For God gave us a remedy and that remedy is the Cross of Christ! We were created for better things and Christ resides in us to break the power of despair. Despair will not have the last say in your life!
