There is so much happening around us to make us to be depressed, but incline your heart to the word of God.
2 King 4:23
“And he said, Wherefore wilt thou go to him today? It is neither new moon, nor sabbath. And she said, It shall be well”.
As a child of God, expect that good will happen to you. If it means closing all your eyes from things around you, close your eyes. The woman in 2 Kings 4 said that it is well in a dead situation. The son was already dead and the husband said: “Woman today is not Sunday. Where are you going”? But she said: “it is well”. The woman refused to be troubled by the terrible situation. She refused to be stressed. Research in Medical Science has shown that about 90% of diseases are stress – related. It is when you are already stressed up that your body begins to react and to throw up all kinds of symptoms. But you are not supposed to be stressed up because the bible says that you can cast your cares upon Him. He cares for you.
How can you survive in our world today, if you do not guard your heart? If you turn to any of the media – electronic or print, you will see 90% of the news are bad news. The news are enough to make your heart fail and give up that anything good can still happen. All across the world, the wars and rumours of war are on the increase. The nations that are not into war are battling with natural disasters – earthquakes, floods etc. There is so much bad news going around that you must consciously guard your heart with all diligence. There is nowhere that is safe. I see people running from developing nations to developed nations in search of greener pastures only to get there and realise that they are even facing worse devils there. There is so much happening around us to make us to be depressed, but incline your heart to the word of God.
However beloved, I give you a charge: don’t hang your face in the dust, but look straight. God told Abraham to look from where he is and not at where he is, when Lot departed from him. This is because when you look at your circumstance, it will put you in a condition that you may not be able to come out from. So I challenge you to look away from the circumstance and look unto God. Those who look unto Him are never disappointed. Psalms 34:5 says “They looked unto him, and were lightened: and their faces were not ashamed.” You will not be disappointed in Jesus name.
