Psalms 42:11 "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."

KJV

Life is full of situations and occurrences that can leave us suppressed, troubled and discouraged. There are times that you just feel depressed without knowing why. Depression has a way of taking away our peace thus leaving behind a trail of internal turmoil. Is that your situation or are you susceptible to bouts of depression? You are not alone in this.

In the passage of scripture under consideration today, we see a man who went through his own share of bouts of depression. If there was any man that was susceptible to struggling with this issue of depression with its attendant fear, self-doubt, and uncertainty, that man was king David. So, the question is did he give in? How did he go through all of that and still came out standing tall as a man after God's own heart? How did he survive all that turmoil and hatred but still finished strong: "Acts 13:36 For David, after he had served his own generation by the will of God, fell on sleep, and was laid unto his fathers..." ?

The answer is right there: hope thou in God, for I shall yet praise Him... You see, friends, the Lord prescribes the cure for depression in this passage through His servant David. When your hope is in God, you will have the strength to face life's challenges on a daily basis. God is the reason for our living, when you come to this realization, you will have a reason to press on in the midst of uncertainty and difficulties. The cure for depression as prescribed by YAHWEH Himself is praise! You see, when the Lord is your hope, you will find the courage to praise Him in the storm, and you know what, He will calm the storm!

Go into today determined to hope in God and praise Him in every situation.
