Even David Got Depressed

Psalms 42:11 NET “Why are you depressed, O my soul? Why are you upset? Wait for God! For I WILL AGAIN GIVE THANKS to my God for his saving intervention.”

Even David Got Depressed

If the giant killer got depressed who says we will never experience depression? Throughout the Bible book of Psalms David expresses his feelings of depression to God quite often. But that’s OK.😁 In the passage above David shows us the secret of how to get over and defeat depression. GIVE THANKS TO GOD!!!😃 That’s right, while you’re feeling like crap thank God anyway for his saving interventions. Think about the times when God saved you. Remember that one? Yeah, remember that other one? Remember the one when it looked like it was all over for you? Your enemies thought they had you then, didn’t they? Yet God rescued you, didn’t He?😊 If you and I would only do what David did when he felt like dung: pray to God about it and openly share our feelings with Him, then think about the many times he saved us against all odds, and thank Him regardless of how you’re feeling, I promise you will feel better. If you and I do this throughout our lives we will not only feel better immediately we will also overcome and defeat depression.😊

Philippians 4:6-7 NET “Do not be anxious about anything. Instead, in every situation, through prayer and petition WITH THANKSGIVING, tell your requests to God. And the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.”

Colossians 3:17 NET “And whatever you do in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, GIVING THANKS to God the Father through him.”

Colossians 2:6-7 NET “Therefore, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him and firm in your faith just as you were taught, and OVERFLOWING WITH THANKFULNESS.”
