Overcoming Discouragement

by Jonathan Laurie on Mar 27, 2022

Today, on Harvest At Home, Pastor Jonathan Laurie will be continuing in our Acts series with his message titled “Overcoming Discouragement.”

Sermon Notes

If we follow the apostle Paul’s example, we can overcome discouragement by remembering the Lord’s authority in our lives and submitting every situation to Him.


  • We can follow in Paul’s footsteps when we face discouragement by being obedient, serving others, and sharing our hope
  • God’s revealed will is found in scripture 
  • Suffering is part of God’s will for us
  • The greatest thing we can do with our suffering is to use it for God’s glory
  • Paul served people because Jesus laid that foundation
  • Paul went from being a persecutor of the church to begin persecuted for the church
