As I have pointed out before, King David was prone to depression and was quite graphic in describing his affliction. But he also was faithful in describing his antidote to depression – God. Let’s look at what David has to say in Psalm 31.
9 Be merciful to me, LORD, for I am in distress;
my eyes grow weak with sorrow,
my soul and body with grief.
10 My life is consumed by anguish
and my years by groaning;
my strength fails because of my affliction,[b]
and my bones grow weak.
14 But I trust in you, LORD;
I say, “You are my God.”
15 My times are in your hands;
24 Be strong and take heart,
all you who hope in the LORD.
Yes, indeed, “Be strong and take heart all you who hope in the Lord.” This is the third leg of the stool – spirit. Ignore the spiritual side of your life at your own peril.
