FEELINGS … DEALING WITH DEPRESSION

FEELINGS … DEALING WITH DEPRESSION

I KINGS 19:1-18

 

DEPRESSION,

“UNDUE SADNESS, DEJECTION OR MELANCHOLY, FEELINGS OF WORTHLESSNESS AND GUILT AND OFTEN APPREHENSION … STEMS PRIMARILY FROM INNER EMOTIONAL CAUSES.” NARRAMORE

 

DEPRESSION IS SAID TO COST BUSINESSES 80 BILLION DOLLARS PER YEAR …

 

THE GREATEST COST IS HUMAN LIFE,

“ALMOST EVERYONE AT SOME POINT HAS FELT SUICIDAL.”

RICK WARREN

 

“SUICIDE IS A PERMANENT IRREVERSIBLE ATTEMPT TO SOLVE TEMPORARY PAIN.”

RICK WARREN

 

ELIJAH: THE CAUSE AND CURE OF DEPRESSION,

 

 ELIJAH RUNS … Vv.1-4

   (SPIRITUAL HIGH’S ARE OFTEN FOLLOWED BY SPIRITUAL LOW’S)

 

GOD RESPONDS

 

   TOUCHED BY AN ANGEL … Vv.5-9

 

      TIM KELLER, 3 THINGS HAPPEN:

 

      GOD SENDS AN ANGEL OF REST,

 

      GOD LISTENS,

 

      GOD GIVES HIS WORD,

 

 MINISTERS PHYSICALLY, SPIRITUALLY, PSYCHOLOGICALLY

 

   TREATED TENDERLY BY GOD:

 

      A WORD TO THE DISCOURAGED, Vv.11-14

 

      A WORD TO THE DEFEATED, Vv.15-18

 

        DEFER TO GOD’S WISDOM …

 

        DIVE INTO THE LOVE AND GRACE OF GOD …

 

         DISTANCE YOURSELF FROM ERROR …

 

 

APPLICATION:

 

NO EMOTION LAST FOREVER,

 

 SHARE WHAT YOU ARE FEELING WITH OTHERS,

 

IF SOMEONE YOU KNOW TALKS ABOUT IT, TAKE IT VERY SERIOUSLY

 

“THERE IS NO PIT SO DEEP THAT CHRIST IS NOT DEEPER STILL.”
