Beating Depression

Some passages within the scriptures mirror types of depression. Examining biblical accounts of depression and the overcoming lives of those challenged by it is encouraging. The following article provides some biblical examples of people struggling with depression as well as some solutions:

“Psalms 42 and 43 give a good description of the clinical features of depression and provide assurance that depression is both part of normal human experience and understood by God. The psalmist describes the depressed person’s mood changes, loss of appetite, grief and mourning, difficulty in planning and paranoia. The immediate cause is not clear – but may have been due to circumstances, as a result of physical symptoms or spiritual. Depressed people often find prayer difficult so need friends who will pray for them, encourage them to put their hope in God and remind them that better times will come.”
