God & Depression

God & Depression

Elijah has just experienced God at work in a great victory over the prophets of Baal. But he soon despairs of his own life. As he flees from Jezebel after a great victory, he feels lonely, isolated, and fearful. He wants to die. In this difficult time of depression, God strengthens and refreshes Elijah with the truth.

When you feel depressed, it can seem like nothing will ever get better. You feel alone, isolated, and afraid. But through the support of counselors, friends, and your Savior, you can come out on the other side of depression.

Sermon Text: 1 Kings 19:1-9
