Depression: PSA 42:5, 11

Psalm 42:5; Psalm 42:11
Why art thou cast down, O my soul?  .  .  .  hope thou in God.
David was having real difficulties. He was getting to the point of depression. And he asks “Why?” The answer that came was, “Hope thou in God.” Depression caused by a medical problem can be cured with medication. Spiritual depression can also be cured - with God. Hoping in Him is the answer to a spiritual down. Leave the problem with Him and let Him work it out.
