Jesus says in John 16:33, “In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” And in Deuteronomy 31:6, God says through Moses, “for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”
This is great news for those who trust in the Lord. You don’t have to worry that you don’t have enough, can’t measure up, or have no one to go to for help. He holds you in His hand and enjoys having you there.
God has not left you to your own resources, energies, or cleverness. This is a good thing if you find yourself unable to escape from the black box of depression and anxiety. No matter what the world throws at you, Jesus is greater. He is greater than depression, greater than anxiety, greater than Satan, and greater than all the mistakes you have ever made in your life. Rest in Him. Since I came out of the black box of depression a few years ago, resting in Christ has kept me from going back in.
