DEPRESSION. . . . . Psalm 42:1-6 Depression is one of the most common emotional ailments. One cure for depression is to meditate on the record of God's goodness to his people. This will take your mind off the present situation and give hope that it will improve. It will focus your thoughts on God's ability to help you rather than your inability to help yourself. When you fell depressed, take advantage of this psalm's antidepressant. Read the Bible's accounts of God's goodness and meditate on them.
