Praycation 2013 – Cast Down But Not Destroyed

Word of the Day:
Verse of the Day: Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.

 Psalms 42:5

Why, my soul, are you downcast? Because life is filled with affliction, that’s why. It gets overwhelming-sickness and disease taking the lives of loved ones, ongoing political dissention, senseless crimes being committed; overall disappointment. However, the psalmist offers a solution; God.

Placing your trust in the sovereignty of God helps us to rest knowing that God is in control, no matter what it looks like at the time. Stretching our faith to praise Him in advance because He has already saved us from eternal hell also helps lift the cloak of depression because we place our attention on the one who is praiseworthy. It reminds us that He has the ability to change even the darkest situations.

If you struggle with depression, know that there is hope and help. Reminding yourself of the greatness of God through prayer, praise and meditation goes a long way in lifting a downcast soul. When we trust in Him, we can rest in Him knowing that our concerns are his concerns. Friends, be encouraged. God has neither forgotten your or forsaken you!

Prayer: Dear God, there are times when I let the troubles of the world weigh me down. Life seems like it’s just too hard. Help me to hope and trust in you, knowing that you are in control. In Jesus name, AMEN
