Psalm 42:5 “Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted in me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him for the help of his countenance.”
If something is making you sad and depress, then it is essential that you do not let self talk to you, instead, you must be the one to talk to self! I hope you know what I mean. Let me explain…
In a hard or trying situation your fleshly nature will give you one hundred and one reasons why things are sooooo bad for you. And if you dwell on them, your emotions will follow what you are filling your head with, and within long, you’ll find yourself in a place of depression. But look at what King David did in the verse above. He would not let himself get down but instead of letting self speak to him, he spoke to his own soul.
So has something been eating away at you and getting you down? Make a conscious effort to take God into account once again! Begin to praise Him like the psalmist, and don’t let your fleshly “woe is me” thoughts take a hold in your mind! If you are in despair, then, like the psalmist, choose to remember God and tell it to yourself.
