To overcome depression we need to identify what caused it. Once we do that we need to identify what scriptures we need to print out to overcome the depression, so we can read them daily. If anger or covetousness caused your depression, finding 30 verses to study daily for one month is a simple solution. But what if there are several factors, what if the problem is complex and the solution seems a million miles away.
In complicated situations, it is best to pray 5-10 minutes daily about what scripture search you need to do in Google. It may take a week, or even a month of prayer to figure out the scriptures that you need to “pound out” what is causing the depression.
Why does “it” need to be pounded out? When sin or things like that lead to depression, the problem is usually not the events that you are going through. The problem is that there is something in you, which came out because of certain events, and “it” needs to be pounded out or it will cause problems again.
We think wrong and that causes massive problems. When we study Bible verses on intoxication we finally start to think right about intoxication.
When we pray enough, the Holy Spirit will show us what verses we need to use to pound out what is causing the specific problem regarding depression. Then, when we study and pray over the verses, the problem will begin to be pounded out.
Psalm 25:9 ESV
He leads the humble in what is right, and teaches the humble his way.”
“Father, help me to be humble so I can find what is right. Show me Your way.”
Psalm 119:105 ESV Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.”
Work daily on this and insist that this verse is true. Work daily until that depression is lifted, and until you are a shining light in a dark world.
