27 Powerful Bible Verses Against Depression

Share:


Cambridge dictionary defines depression as a state of feeling very unhappy and without hope for the future, but most times it goes way beyond that. Many do recommend medical help, but as Christians, we know that that's not always the best choice. The solution to every problem man encounters is in God's Word.

Here are twenty-seven carefully picked Bible verses that will help you combat depression whenever the need arises. I believe you'll find them useful.

THE LORD WILL PROVIDE

The best option is for us to trust the LORD concerning everything we require in life, not the arm of flesh or our ability to get them on our own strength.

Matthew 6:31-32 KJV
Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? [32] (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.

GOD HAS GREAT PLANS FOR YOUR LIFE

His plans for you are higher than yours. We may try to figure out what we deserve by our finite mind, but God always has something bigger and better for us.

1 Peter 4:12-13 KJV
Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: [13] But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.

Jeremiah 29:11 KJV
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord , thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

Matthew 7:9-11 KJV
Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone? [10] Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent? [11] If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?

GOD'S LOVE IS EVERLASTING, HE WILL NOT FORSAKE YOU

God is not a man, His love for us is incomparable. God's got you covered always no matter how unworthy you may feel at times. Rest in this truth.

Romans 8:38-39 KJV
For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, [39] Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

HE IS YOUR COMFORTER

One of His attributes is that of a comforter. When storms of life arise, give Him room to comfort your through His Word and Holy Spirit.

2 Corinthians 1:3-5 KJV
Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; [4] Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God. [5] For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also aboundeth by Christ.
