I. THE CURRENT REALITY OF DEPRESSION
“Men’s hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken…” (Luke 21:26)
II. THE CHOICE RECOURSE OR PRESCRIPTION
“O my God my soul is cast down within me; therefore I will remember You from the land of the Jordan, and from the heights of Hermon, from the Hill Mizar. Deep calls unto deep at the noise of Your waterfalls; all Your waves and billows have gone over me. The LORD will command His lovingkindness in the daytime, and in the night His song shall be with me– – A prayer to the God of my life.
I will say to God my Rock, ‘Why have You forgotten me? Why do I go mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?’ As with a breaking of my bones, my enemies reproach me, while they say to me all day long, ‘Where is your God?’
Why are you cast down, O my soul? And why are you disquieted within me? HOPE IN GOD, for I shall yet praise Him, the help of my countenance and my God” (Psalm 42:6-11)
