God is always the Answer

There is absolutely no challenge too small nor too large for God.  This morning I was reminded how “depression” is widespread and talked about in advertisements and articles. Any time I have felt discouraged, I pray with Psalm 40:2-3 which reads “He lifted me out of the slimy pit,  out of the mud and mire; He set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand.  He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God.  Many will see and fear and put their trust in the Lord.”

To think we can go to God with any and all things is such security and nothing the world offers can compete with that sense of security.  As I was thinking of the slimy pit, I also thought that there is no need to go to rock bottom because we can turn to God at anytime.  We can always say “Thus far and no farther”.

Depression

While working at my desk this morning,  the thought of depression came into my thinking.  It seems to be widespread throughout with different types of medication and therapy thrown at you.  If someone believes in this human world and are waiting for things to run smoothly in our government and world affairs, they are going to be sorely disappointed.  John 14:27 reads, “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you.  I do not give to you as the world gives.  Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”  We need to look through God’s (Love’s) eyes and see what He sees.  There seem to be more people praying about our world than ever before.  This is a good thing.
