Verses from God’s Word to read, study, meditate upon. Verses are taken from the New King James version of the Bible:
Esther 9:22 And Mordecai wrote .........to establish these days as the days on which the Jews had rest from their enemies, as the month which was turned from sorrow to joy for them, and from mourning to a holiday; that they should make them days of feasting and joy, of sending presents to one another and gifts to the poor.(God had delivered them from the hand of their enemy; they were given the victory which brought them out of despair into relief causing great joy. To remember their deliverance they made a yearly celebration to commemorate what God had done for them. Not unlike our celebration of Christmas where we commemorate the birth of Christ who gives us the victory to whatever degree that we take it and allow it to develop in our lives.)
Psalm 38:17, 21 & 22 For I am ready to fall, And my sorrow is continually before me. Do not forsake me, O Lord: O my God, be not far from me! Make haste to help me, O Lord, my salvation!(Here is one who knows that his depression is overwhelming himself so he calls on his one hope which is the Creator; the One who has made all things and is ever ready to come to the aid of His creation.)
Psalm 42:11 “Why are you cast down, O my soul? And why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God; For I shall yet praise Him, The help of my countenance and my God.(We are taught in God’s Word what to do when we are cast down and in depression. Take a stand and call on God for help; He will deliver us. Why? Because He has a deep and lasting love for mankind. The enemy would have us to believe that He is the great disciplinarian who rules without love or mercy. But that is a lie! He is most gracious, ever ready to forgive with lasting love and great mercy.)
Proverbs 12:25 Anxiety in the heart of man causes depression. But a good word makes it glad.
Proverbs 15:13 A merry heart makes a cheerful countenance, But by sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken.
Proverbs 18:14 The spirit of a man will sustain him in sickness, But who can bear a broken spirit?
Isaiah 14:3 It shall come to pass in the day the Lord gives you rest from your sorrow, and from your fear and the hard bondage in which you were made to serve.
Isaiah 35:10 And the ransomed of the Lord shall return, And come to Zion with singing, With everlasting joy on their heads. They shall obtain joy and gladness, And sorrow and sighing shall flee away.
Isaiah 61:1 The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me, Because the Lord has anointed me To preach good tidings to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives, And the opening of the prison to those who are bound; To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, And the day of vengeance of our God; To comfort all who mourn, To console those who mourn in Zion, To give them beauty for ashes, The oil of joy for mourning, The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; That they may be called trees of righteousness, The planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.
Jeremiah 32:12 Therefore they shall come and sing in the height of Zion, Streaming to the goodness of the Lord– For wheat and new wine and oil, For the young of the flock and the herd; Their souls shall be like a ‘well-watered garden, And they shall sorrow no more at all.
