"The eternal God is your refuge, And underneath are the everlasting arms; He will thrust out the enemy from before you, And will say, ‘Destroy!’ " (Deut. 33:22)
God wants us to get into the habit of turning to Him in confidence when we're in a bad mood; when we feel neglected or rejected or fearful. When we reason within ourselves that we need something to "cheer us up" when we feel depressive thoughts setting in or we've been discouraged in some way, God wants us to think of praise as the remedy. It is, you know. PRAISE RESTORES JOY, AND WORSHIP RESTORES PEACE.
Beloved, don't turn to the so-called remedies the world supplies (like exercise, TV, or overeating) for they don't have power to last. Vices (sex, smoking, drinking) engaged to mask our pain will only make things worse.
Instead, apply the Balm of Gilead to your hearts, dear ones. Exchange all worry, anxiety, and stress for the truth of Abba's great love for you. As your creator, He alone holds the key to the restoration of your heart. He will gladly free you from perceived lack in the "coping" places - everywhere you feel you may not be able to hold on. God knows you, beloved; allow His Spirit to lift you above your circumstances and bring you lasting joy in the security that comes from knowing He is our cure. He is our restorer, refuge, and hiding place FOREVER.
