Read Psalm 42-43 for this.
Chapters 42-49 were written by the sons of Korah, a Levite who rebelled against Moses. However, his sons and descendents did not join his wickedness, but they faithfully continued to serve God as musicians in the Temple for hundreds of years.
X. REMEMBER THAT THE DEVIL USES DEPRESSION ON GOOD CHRISTIANS.
The important lesson in these chapters is that the Psalmist learned to focus on the goodness of God in times of depression. Rather than focus on his inability to help himself, he focused on the ability of God to help in times of trouble.
The lesson for each Christian reading or listening to this message is to focus not only on the goodness of God, but His ability, action and our attitude.
The higher you go the lower you fall and learn to enjoy working in the valleys…problems. The more success, the more valleys you will experience.
Depression can lead to bad attitudes or a yielding to and falling into sin.
The prescription for depression: Go to God, don’t complain to anybody, and get busy praying, helping others, and work a solution.
And always remember, 1 John 4:4, “Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.”
