Isaiah 50:10 Who is among you that feareth the LORD, that obeyeth the voice of his servant, that walketh in darkness, and hath no light? let him trust in the name of the LORD, and stay upon his God.
Every single follower of Jesus Christ is going to face times of depression and discouragement. It is inevitable. Until we are with The Lord in glory, we will face trials that test our faith in God to the limits. Our study this morning reminds us that the people of God have always had to deal with circumstances and trials that brought them to tears day and night. Can you relate to that this morning, beloved? Proverbs 4:22 tells us that God’s Word is health, or medicine for our souls. God’s Word ministers to our souls and reaches its deep recesses where no medicine of man can reach.
Because of an unrealistic, “hype” faith message that is so popular today, many of Christ’s followers are made to feel guilty into condemnation because of their battles with depression and discouragement. Beloved, Jesus Christ has provided for each and every one of His children things that pertain to life and godliness (2 Peter 1:3). There is hope and comfort in God’s Word, which enables us to deal with depression and discouragement in a God-designed way that gives Him glory. Please hear what The Spirit of God says to His church this morning.
