Why Depression?

Do the next thing, “Arise & eat” Angel says to Elijah in 1 Kings 19:5, (courtesy of Oswald Chambers – February 17).

“To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven,”  Ecclesiastes 3:1.

“Then Job answered the Lord, and said, I know that You can do everything, and no thought can be withholden from You.”  Job 42:1-2.

“Out of the depths Have I cried unto You, O Lord.  Lord, hear my voice: let Your ears be attentive to the voice of my supplications,” Psalm 130:1-2.   “I waited patiently for the Lord; and He inclined unto me, and heard my cry.  He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings. And He hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the Lord,” Psalm 40:1-3.

[Jesus] “Man of Sorrows,” Isaiah 53:3.

Luke 22:41-44, (NIV) “He withdrew about a stone’s throw beyond them, knelt down and prayed,  “Father, if you are willing, take this cup from Me; yet not My will, but Yours be done.” An angel from heaven appeared to Him and strengthened Him. And being in anguish, He prayed more earnestly, and His sweat was like drops of blood falling to the ground.”

Matthew 14:8-13, “Prompted by her mother, she said, “Give me here on a platter the head of John the Baptist.” The king was distressed, but because of his oaths and his dinner guests, he ordered that her request be granted  and had John beheaded in the prison.  His head was brought in on a platter and given to the girl, who carried it to her mother. John’s disciples came and took his body and buried it. Then they went and told Jesus. When Jesus heard what had happened, He withdrew by boat privately to a solitary place. Hearing of this, the crowds followed him on foot from the towns.”

Now is my soul troubled; and what shall I say? Father, save Me from this hour: but for this cause came I unto this hour,” John 12:27.

Loving Father, You have all the answers.  To You we seek, trust and wait.  Nothing is hidden from You, You are with us. You tell us what we need to know.  “Though He slay me, yet I will trust Him,” Job 13:15.
