“How to Fight Depression”

Key Scriptures

  • “When Ahab got home, he told Jezebel everything Elijah had done, including the way he had killed all the prophets of Baal. 2 So Jezebel sent this message to Elijah: “May the gods strike me and even kill me if by this time tomorrow I have not killed you just as you killed them.” Elijah was afraid and fled for his life. He went to Beersheba, a town in Judah, and he left his servant there. 4 Then he went on alone into the wilderness, traveling all day. He sat down under a solitary broom tree and prayed that he might die. “I have had enough, LORD,” he said. “Take my life, for I am no better than my ancestors who have already died.” 5 Then he lay down and slept under the broom tree.” 1 Kings 19:1-5
  • “Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.” Matthew 28:19

  • The LORD is my light and my salvation—whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life—of whom shall I be afraid? 3 Though a mighty army surrounds me, my heart will not be afraid. Even if I am attacked, I will remain confident.The one thing I ask of the LORD—​the thing I seek most— is to live in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, delighting in the LORD’s perfections and meditating in his Temple.​” Psalm 27:1,3​-4

Pray it Out

God let me desire Your great presence! Help me to love You for You and not for Your stuff, please give me the courage to chase community, commission, and presence. Amen.
