The term ‘depression’ can mean so many things. There is a type where you are just sad for a season; in which, you are just feeling down and somber. There is also a type where you feel as if you are in a hole and just cannot get out. Sometimes these types of depression need to be managed with medical help. I am not advocating that anyone get off of medication. I am advocating that you reflect on God’s Word and what His solution for day-to-day life is.
“Yet I am standing here depressed and gloomy, but I will meditate upon Your kindness to this lovely land where the Jordan River flows and where Mount Hermon and Mount Mizar stand.” Psalm 42:6(TLB)
“In bitterness of soul Hannah wept much and prayed to the Lord.” I Samuel 1:10(NIV)
“Oh, that these men would praise the Lord for His loving kindness, and for all of His wonderful deeds! For He satisfies the thirsty soul and fills the hungry soul with good.” Psalm 107:8-9(TLB)
“I will praise the Lord no matter what happens, I will constantly speak of His glories and grace. I will boast of all His kindness to me. Let all who are discouraged take heart. Let us praise the Lord together, and exalt His name.” Psalm 34:1-3(TLB)
“Let all the joys of the godly well up in praise to the Lord, for it is right to praise Him. Play joyous melodies of praise upon the lyre and on the harp. Compose new songs of praise to Him, accompanied skillfully on the harp; sing joyfully.” Psalm 33:1-3(TLB)
“Weeping may go on all night, but in the morning there is joy.” Psalm 30:5(TLB)
“Great peace have they who love your law, and nothing can make them stumble.” Psalms 119:165(NIV)
Can patiently meditating on God’s Word and expecting Him to act relieve depression?
Do you pray, read the Bible, reflect on your blessings, praise God, listen to music, praise and try to keep God’s law?
