“Defeat Depression”

Key Verse

“Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted  within me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God” (Psalm 42:11).

Text — Psalm 42:9-11


Friend, I have one simple message for you today: Don’t write yourself off, but defeat depression. In our memory verse today, David told his soul to hope in God. Depression is the feeling of sadness, failure and hopelessness. Any time you feel  depressed,tell yourself, “No, I am not going to end up like this; I too will live to testify to the goodness of the Lord.” No matter what you are going through there is always light at the end of the tunnel. Do not allow challenges to put your back on the ground. Nelson Mandela said, “The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.”

The Psalmist says, “I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the Lord…” (Psalm 121:1-2). Look unto Jesus; don’t give up, it’s not over. Depression is the deception of the devil. Discuss your fears with your spiritual leader,then let Jesus come into your life and situation (Matthew 11:28-29). Believe God’s Word and exercise your faith in it.


Don’t give up


Your story will not end in sorry; it will end in glory.

Prayer for today

Arise O Lord, and let your glory be seen upon me.
